August 19, 2016 - Stung Treng (Cambodia). Aerial view of the relocation village built by authorities for people that were living in the Lower Sesan 2 Dam reservoir area. 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
