UK calls for constructive engagement on World Bank Roghun report

The UK encourages constructive engagement by all sides on the World Bank draft report about the proposed Roghun hydropower project.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government


A Foreign Office spokesperson said:

We welcome the 17 June publication of The World Bank’s draft independent report on the Roghun hydropower project and the associated technical studies. These are comprehensive and considered assessments which we will study carefully.

We encourage all states concerned to consider these reports carefully and to take part in the planned World Bank-led consultations over the coming weeks and months.

Such constructive engagement will be vital to achieve an agreed and sustainable way forward, which contributes towards meeting the energy and resource challenges faced by all in the region.
