Uganda: stopping flow of funds to bujagali dam
The Ugandan government began building the Bujagali dam on the River Nile in 2007, even though the project had previously been delayed for over ten years for many reasons, including exorbitant project costs and its predicted economic and environmental impacts. The project is financed by the World Bank (WB), the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the European Investment Bank (EIB). Both the banks and the Ugandan government have overlooked and even ignored their own safeguard policies.
