On behalf of an alliance of civil society organisations working to protect and restore river ecosystems and river-based livelihoods in Cambodia, we are calling on the Thai and Lao governments to immediately halt all construction work on the proposed Xayaburi hydropower project in Northern Lao PDR. 

We believe that if the dam goes forward it will have irreversible negative impacts.

We urge Prime Minster Yingluck Shinawatra to take responsible action by decisively cancelling the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with the Thai company Ch Karnchang.
