(KPL) The MRC member countries Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand and Viet Nam agreed on Apr 4 a statement on the prior consultation process for the proposed Pak Lay hydropower project, as the members concluded the six-month prior consultation process.
They also deliberated and landed an agreement on the pending joint action plan (JAP) for the implementation of the statement on the Pak Beng hydropower project, and the current JAP for the Pak Lay project.
The statement demonstrates our accountability to our leaders and people in the basin, Chairperson of the MRC Joint Committee for 2019 Dr. Le Duc Trung said. It also reflects stakeholders’ recommendations resulted from regional and national consultations on how to avoid, minimize and mitigate potential transboundary impacts from Pak Lay development and operation, he added.
