Kachin State Natural Resources Development Discussion Paper

By Kachin Development Networking Group  •  July 7, 2015

KDNGThis policy discussion paper is based on our experiences and findings of our community research over the last ten years, documenting the impacts of centralized mega development projects on peoples across Kachin state. We did this research together with local communities, including in Hukawng, Hpakant, Putao, Chibwe, Tangphre as well as others. This paper also draws on experiences and solutions from other countries where there has been conflict over natural resources. We hope this paper will contribute to the debate over political solutions to allow the future generations of Kachin state to benefit from its natural resources.
