Ilisu EIA released - NGOs show new design to be seriously flawed (PDF)

(WEED, Berlin, The scandalous Ilisu dam project in Turkey is coming to a crucial stage. At the end of 2005, an updated environmental impact assessment and resettlement action plan were published by the consortium and applications for export credit insurance were filed in Austria, Switzerland and Germany. NGO analysis , which were submitted to the ECAs on Feb. 20th, shows that the new documents are seriously flawed and the project is far from meeting the international standards it claims to observe.
