Guatemala mega-dam under fire over abuses

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

A planned mega-dam in Guatemala, whose carbon credits will be tradable under the European Union’s emissions trading system, has been linked to grave human rights abuses, including the killing of six indigenous people, two of them children.

Several European development banks and the World Bank’s International Finance Corporation have provided funds for the $250 million Santa Rita dam.
