August 25, 2015 - Srekor village, Stung Treng (Cambodia). An old sign used to educate villagers to protect the environment is seen outside Srekor village. The village and the sorrounding areas have been  will be soon be flooded because of the construction of the Lower Sesan II dam. The 400-MW dam—a joint venture between Cambodian businessman Kith Meng and China’s Hydrolancang International Energy Co. Ltd.—is set to displace more than 5,000 villagers in Sesan district. Studies claim that the dam could seriously affect fisheries, and in turn the livelihoods of more than 100,000 residents living upstream and downstream of the dam. © Thomas Cristofoletti / Ruom
