China National Machinery and Equipment Import and Export Corporation (CMEC)
 
Conservation groups fear the construction of a dam at Kongou, located in the Ivindo National Park, could have a negative effect on this forest environment. 'The concerns of the conservation groups were laid out in a document presented to President Omar Bongo towards the end of September under the auspices of a coalition called Environnement Gabon (Environment Gabon). The groups question why a decision on dam location appears to have been made before an environmental impact assessment of construction was undertaken, as required by law. The statement further calls on the Ministry of Mines to make public the feasibility study which indicates that about 30,000 jobs stand to be created. Of these jobs, it asks, "how many are reserved for the Gabonese, when we know the natural tendency for Chinese firms...to bring in, extensively, workers from their country...?" ' (http://www.afrika.no/Detailed/15379.html)

China Exim Bank will fund Trishuli A, B will be paid for with domestic funds
 
Not yet determined but China Exim would like the loan it provides to be tied, and Nepal government prefers an untied loan so that it can "economize"
 
 
The construction work on the projects will start in next financial year and they will start generating electricity from 2011-12. "Tri A" will be completed and start production around 2011, and "Tri B" around 2012. Power house and road to site already completed, only 4 km of undergrown tunnel is left.

(CMEC) and 14% to the Nepalese financial institutions,
 
CMEC (14% stake); West Seti Hydro Ltd. (WSHL); SMEC Development (P). Ltd. (Snowy Mountains Engineering Co, Australia), and ADB. Work projected to take 5.5 years.
Nepal, India, China, and Australia are stakeholders/partners, as well as  ADB and Nepalese government and investors
 
Will resume after 2008 monsoon, after delay in 2007 because of continued political uncertainty.

Environmental Impact Assessment notes negative impacts would include displacement of over 8,000 people (75% in Togo, 25% in Benin), increased coastal erosion, and reservoir pollution from upstream factories. Greenhouse gas emissions will likely be high due to little planned removal of vegetation in the area of the reservoir.
