Community Rights and Expectations in Natural Resource Development

Large natural resource projects, such as mines, oil and gas pipelines, or hydroelectric dams may offer opportunities for economic and social development in the regions they are located.

Others, including the very poor, may be hurt by changes that undermine their previous livelihoods, without giving them access to alternatives.
