Malaysia Day 2019: Development - at what & whose cost?

Diana Sipail, Task Force Against Kaiduan Dam (TAKaD) | Nicholas Gilai, Save Papar River Committee

10-Sep-19 15:00

Malaysia

The proposed Papar Dam Project in Sabah, if constructed, would displace more than 3,200 people, and affected communities are also concerned that the dam will have adverse environmental impacts, destroy burial sites and submerge land over which they hold native customary title. Water supply is a serious issue, but should it come at the expense of human rights or the environment? Ahead of Malaysia Day 2019, we speak to activists Diana Sipail and Nicholas Gilai, who are urging the authorities to explore other options aside from dams, and to respect indigenous land rights.
