29 April, 2013

Perempuan dan anak hidup di Dataran Tinggi Nakai, Laos. Lebih dari 120,000 warga terdampak langsung oleh Nam Theun 2

Berbagai proyek dan intervensi program bank-bank pembangunan multilateral memiliki satu jejak pelanggaran hak azasi manusia (HAM) sistematis dan meluas bagi masyarakat adat di Asia. Di banyak negara, masyarakat adat telah menjadi sasaran penggusuran dan kehilangan sumber penghidupan tradisional mereka. Pemicu berbagai pelanggaran HAM tersebut adalah pengabaian hak-hak masyarakat adat atas tanah, wilayah dan sumber daya mereka serta hak untuk memberikan keputusan bebas, didahulukan dan diinformasikan (KBDD/FPIC) atas berbagai proyek dan intervensi program, termasuk proyek-proyek atas-nama pembangunan berkelanjutan dan pembangunan manusia. Diantara hal-hal tersebut adalah, proyek infrastruktur raksasa (konstruksi bendungan dan jalan raya) dan proyek-proyek “konservasi” lingkungan yang telah berdampak paling buruk pada masyarakat adat.
