One dam, many policies: the resettlement experience of Green Mountain village
Pages 24

In 2004, the first of six villager small groups was informed that they would have to leave their homes by the summer of 2005 and move to Green Mountain, a village 200 kilometers away from their present location. Over the following eight years, all six villager small groups were relocated from their mountain village along the Lancang River to the plains near the urban center of Pu’er. Their home village had been designated as the future construction and inundation area of the Nuozhadu Dam, which would require the villagers’ houses to be demolished and part of their fields to be washed away.
