This document discusses the consultation process relating to the Xayaburi Dam. The Xayaburi Dam is one of 11 hydropower projects proposed along the Mekong River. An environmental impact assessment was completed in 2010. The author considers issues of consultation associated with the conduct and dissemination of the EIA. They argue the consultation process was fundamentally flawed as a result of the stakeholders’ lack of access to the EIA document.
