The Inside Program was conducted in May 2012. SDC conducted research regarding the dam development project in Karenni State. The damming of Salween River has caused environmental degradation and forced displacement over the past decades, and has been the cause of violent conflicts. The current dam project funded by Chinese investors continues to ignore environmental consequences, and will adversely affect the local population. After researching the current situation, SDC published a report to draw attention of the environmental issues.
