A dedicated THPC Social & Environmental Division (SED) implements a broad range of programs and activities designed to share the benefits of the project with local people and to minimize disruption to local ecologies.

Based on lessons from the original Theun-Hinboun project and other hydro projects such as the nearby Nam Theun 2 dam, the expansion project saw a large re-engagement of THPC social and environmental staff, with planning beginning at the early stages through environmental surveys and community consultations.

THPC is committed to a professional and ethical approach to all social and environmental issues and invests heavily in its programs. Successful performance in these areas will not only benefit local people and Laos as a whole, but also contributes to the long-term sustainability and profitability of the entire hydropower operation.

Planning and progress by the SED Division is summarized in booklets published in 2010 and 2012, also available for download by clicking here.
