Irrawaddy dam

This is a provisional success story in 2011 in stopping a very large dam already under construction and scheduled for completion in 2019 in the upper reaches of the Irrawaddy River, the life-line of Burma. It is located in Kachin territory, an ethnic group which has often been in armed rebellion against the state.
