Hydropower Development in Viet Nam

ADB is co-financing the construction of Song Bung 4, a new hydropower plant in central Viet Nam, in compliance with ADB's safeguard requirements and the restoration and improvement of livelihoods of the affected population. The EO project will contribute with baseline and change maps to be used as reference after plant operation start, allowing measuring environmental changes due to encroachment of human activity around the dam and the reservoir. Additionally, precise ground and dam displacements in the order of a few mm/year during and after dam construction will be delivered, to characterise the stress that the filled reservoir exerts on the dam and the ground in its vicinity. Information on illegal logging and other undesired and desired effects near the reservoir, the relocation sites and the nearby Songh Thanh Nature Reserve will also be provided.
