The Bidayuh and the Dam

by Andrew Garton August 22, 2012

The Bidayuh, one of more than 40 sub-ethnic groups in Sarawak, face a threat to their livelihood, traditional lands and culture with the development of the controversial Bengoh Dam. Twelve more dams are proposed for Sarawak and tens of thousands of forest people are likely to be displaced. Not only are the last forest communities of Borneo losing access to their ancestral lands, the world is losing some of the last rainforests that remain in Asia.
