The African Development Bank is investigating the Ugandan Bujagali hydropower project following a complaint lodged by the National Association of Environmental Professionals (Nape.
This is the second investigation to be carried on the Bujagali project; the last, carried in 2003 by the World Bank, saw work on the project halted a week to the start of construction. Nape, an environmental lobby group supported by the International River Network, a body opposed to dam construction, has opposed the Bujagali project since its initiation.
In a letter to ADB, Nape points that any action to support the project before civil society concerns are resolved is a violation of the Bank's own operational policies and procedures that will greatly harm Uganda's society, economy and environment.
