The site contains the 2004 report by Hseng Kham for Salween Watch on her visit to the Salween River in southern China. In 2003, plans had been announced to build thirteen dams on the Chinese section of the river, and several people from downstream communities had come to find out more about the people and the environment in the area. The report concludes that at least one aspect of life was common to both the villagers there and in Shan State - decision makers for the dams don't consult their own citizens about the projects.
