    December, 2018

    The research provides a holistic overview of the key changes that affected Northern Chin society from pre-colonial times up to now in villages close to Hakha town where State penetration was stronger than in more remote

    Construction of various project components
    to extract, process, and export the Shwe
    gas - as well as oil trans-shipments from
    Africa and the Middle East - is now well
    underway. Local peoples are losing their land
    and fishing grounds without finding new job
    opportunities. Workers that have found lowpaying
    temporary jobs are exploited and fired for
    demanding basic rights. Women face unequal
    wages, discrimination in the compensation
    process, and vulnerabilities in the growing sex
    industry around the project.

    Conclusions: "Amnesty International’s latest research shows that hundreds of people close to the giant Letpadaung mine continue to face the risk of forced eviction from their farmland, and in the case of four villages, from their homes as well. In addition, thousands of people living in the area are at risk from Myanmar Wanbao’s inadequate management of environmental risk at the Letpadaung mine, which is situated in a flood and earthquake-prone area. The ESIA for the mine contains fundamental gaps and weaknesses, which Myanmar Wanbao has still not addressed.

    Conclusion: "The Thilawa SEZ project is not clearly described and important information is missing
    throughout the EIA document. The public consultation process did not involve all relevant
    stakeholders, including affected communities, and did not provide sufficient information
    in any case. Consequently, the consultation process did not meet international standards
    and did not meet relevant JICA Guidelines. Had JICA provided adequate and appropriate
    support for the EIA according to its Guidelines, it could have assured that the project
