This Update reports on developments in the implementation of the Nam Theun 2 Hydroelectric Project during 2012. It is based on the findings of ongoing work of the field-based team and a Joint Supervision Mission of the International Financial Institutions (IFIs) supporting the Project undertaken in October 2012 and subsequent shorter interactions and field visits. It follows the last Update to the Boards of the World Bank and Asian Development Bank (ADB), covering progress in 2011. This update takes stock of the current status of implementation in relation to the Project’s development objectives, and draws attention to the opportunities and challenges ahead.

It is comprised of three parts: the first part of the update assesses project implementation progress, including the status of the physical project and related work. Second, the update reflects on progress towards the project’s social and environmental objectives. Finally, the update looks ahead to key challenges, as well as project supervision and monitoring needs, highlighting issues that warrant continued attention during the ongoing commercial operations phase of the project.  

This is a joint report by ADB and the World Bank and is presented in the World Bank’s format.
