Shwe Gas Pipeline Project: Implications for India and Burma
The Shwe Gas Pipeline Campaign Committee (India), a Burma Project grantee, and the Other Media hosted a two-day seminar, "Shwe Gas Pipleline Project: Implications for India and Burma." The objective was to analyze the history of previous energy projects in Burma.
The seminar examined the impact of energy projects on communities and juxtapose these against the imperative of international politics of energy. The seminar aimed to create a coalition of activists and sociopolitical actors in support of a sustained advocacy and campaign program against continued Indian involvement in the Shwe Gas Pipeline Project. The Shwe Gas Pipeline advocacy campaign has been funded in part by the Burma Project, through EarthRights International.
