|KHRP Takes Part in Water and Sustainability Expo|
KHRP was invited by the New Water Culture Foundation and Foro Mundial in July to present the case of mass displacement caused by the Ilisu Dam project in south-east Turkey at the Zaragoza Expo 2008, which had the theme ‘Water and Sustainability’.
Anna also spoke at a parallel event organised by Foro Mundial, which focused on subjects such as mass displacement and the alternatives to building dams. The platform was shared by speakers including: Professor Kader Asmal, former Minister of Water Affairs and Forestry in South Africa and former Chairman of the World Commission on Dams (1997-2001); Patrick McCully, Executive Director of the International Rivers Network; and Robert Epple, President of the European Rivers Network.
