Publication type:

In Brief

Based on field research in early 2015, this In Brief provides a preliminary overview of the differentiated impacts the project is likely to have, and concludes that the land expropriation process for the Suai Supply Base runs the risk of: severely impoverishing local households, increasing inequality between and within households, and leading to marginalisation and social disarticulation (Cernea 2000). Issues highlighted in this In Brief will be explored in depth in a future SSGM Discussion Paper.
