Funders Exit Agua Zarca Dam, But Struggle Continues


Last week, Honduran police arrested several officers employed by the Agua Zarca Dam builder DESA and the country’s armed forces as suspects in the murder of Berta Cáceres. It was a welcome sign of progress in a troubled investigation.

Today, Dutch financier FMO announced that it plans “to seek a responsible and legal exit” from the Agua Zarca Project. Finnfund, another financier, also plans to take this step.

If the other financiers do indeed drop the Agua Zarca Dam, it will mark an important success for the international grassroots campaign coordinated by partners including COPINH, Friends of the Earth Europe, BankTrack and Both Ends. At the same time, the struggle continues, and the international financiers must learn their lessons from this violent and painful experience.
