The Center for Development Research (ZEF) is an international and
interdisciplinary research institute of the University of Bonn,

This book focuses on how various social actors influence the planning
process for Se San River Basin’s management in response to the effect of
Vietnamese Yali-Falls dam on Cambodian local communities‘ livelihoods.
The author examined why responses employed by dam development agencies
produce a particular outcome. He attempted to demonstrate their
strategies and cultural means in taking control over negotiation process
to win the battle for expanding hydropower exploitation in the Se San
River for maximum economic gain. The organizing responses by local
communities and their distant supporters are constrained and resisted by
politics, resources and strategies of dam promoting agencies.
