Letter to EBRD: Kolubara loan connected to resettlement and impacts on communities
Advocacy letter | 30 March 2012
In its letter to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development Bankwatch member group CEKOR discusses issues related to the Kolubara lignite mining project that have not yet been clarified. Among them is the fact that the EBRD’s loan is indeed connected to the resettlement of the Vreoci community, something which the EBRD has denied so far, and the so far vague claim that the project will contribute to emission reductions and environmental improvements.
The EBRD has replied to CEKOR’s letter on April 17, 2012. Download a scan of their response letter as pdf.
Theme: Energy & climate | Social & economic impacts
