Half the world raised against the EBRD (photo)
The world is not indifferent to the issue of construction of small hydropower plants in the Carpathians. Residents of 60 cities of Ukraine, many European countries, USA, Canada and even Lebanon and Hawaii with the photographs show their support to the people who oppose the construction of small hydropower plants on mountain rivers.
According to the Deputy Head of the National Ecological Centre of Ukraine Oleksiy Vasylyuk, these photographs are evidence that the construction of small hydropower plants in the Carpathians concerns not only residents of remote villages of the Carpathians. The environmental threat from such construction concerns all Ukrainians, wherever they live.
According to the community leaders, such construction is not only an environmental threat, but also causes the risk to recreational facilities in the Carpathian region.
The collected photos must convince the EBRD to refuse to fund a process that threatens the environment.
Recall, the situation with the intent to build hundreds small hydropower plants on the territory of Transcarpathia evoked mixed reactions in the society, but their construction still continues.
