The ancient Lao capital of Luang Prabang is widely regarded as one of UNESCO’s finest world heritage sites. But the Lao government’s decision to launch a large dam at a sensitive location only 25 km from the heritage city has spread sadness among many Lao and foreign residents. UNESCO’s World Heritage Centre in Paris is also gravely concerned that the Lao government appears to be in flagrant violation of the international agreement it signed with UNESCO in Protected content protect its own heritage site. The Luang Prabang dam‘s location also happens to be sited just 8.6 km from an active fault in a known earthquake-prone region of Northern Laos.
