The 2019 winner of the Goldman Environmental Prize, Ana Colovic Lesoska, is calling on development banks to drop the disastrous Nenskra hydropower project.
If built, the Nenksra dam would irreparably destroy the unique biodiversity of the Caucasus mountains and the economic livelihoods of the indigenous Svan people that have lived for generations in the region.
The indigenous Svan communities that depend on their natural surroundings for their livelihood since generations, have been protesting the project over the past several years.
Ana Colovic Lesoska has led a multi-year campaign to cut off international funding for two large hydropower plants planned for inside the Mavrovo National Park. Now she is asking the banks to do the same in Georgia.
A disaster was avoided in the case of Mavrovo, and the banks can do the right thing and not fund the Nenskra project.
