Failing local communities – the Land Assessment and Livelihoods Restoration Plan for the Nenskra dam
Study | 11 September 2017
A field investigation conducted by CEE Bankwatch Network in the Nenskra and Nakra valleys in Upper Svaneti in Georgia during two visits in July 2017 has found evidence that the Land Acquisition and Livelihood Restoration Plan (LALRP) developed by the project company JSC Nenkra Hydro is inaccurate and fails to properly map, assess and provide adequate compensation for people affected by the project, especially for those that are significantly and severely affected by the planned Nenskra hydropower plant. The LALRP and its implementation so far do not comply with the requirements of international financiers’ policies concerning involuntary resettlement and economic displacement.
