This project aims to promote gender equality in the 3S river area by facilitating economic development for women in three districts in the provinces of Thua Thien Hue, Dak Lak and Dak Nong. The project applies Social Impact Assessment (SIA) and Gender Impact Assessment (GIA), to make the EIA process more comprehensive and more accountable, in line with policy provisions for hydropower development in Vietnam.

Project goals:

– Enhancing business opportunities for women affected by the A Luoi and Srepok 3 hydropower dams.

– Promoting the SIA and GIA process as part of the EIA for hydroelectric dams in Vietnam.

– Strengthening the capacity of women along the 3S river system and border regions to tell their story about the impact of the dams.
