Tumanduk tribe’s right to development ignored in the construction of megadam

The right to development of indigenous peoples in the region has been ignored since the beginning of the project. The United Nations defines the right to development as “an inalienable human right by virtue of which every human person and all peoples are entitled to participate in, contribute to, and enjoy economic, social, cultural and political development, in which all human rights and fundamental freedoms can be fully realized.”
