March 2012 - Over the next 25 years, the Nam Theun (NT2) 2 Hydropower project will generate around US$2 billion in revenues for the Lao Government, some of which is already being spent on rural roads, education, health and environmental projects. While these national benefits are large, the NT2 project is also committed to ensuring that the local people who are directly impacted by the project are fairly treated and compensated.
