This chapter describes the author's work on the Panel of Environmental and Social Experts (POE) for Laos' Nam Theun 2 (NT2) dam.

Therefore, the goal should be to make them as sustainable as possible, for both the environment and people.

Keywords:   Mekong River basin, dams, sustainable development
