Lao Hydropower Map

This map shows dams (built, planned or shelved) in the Nam Theun, Nam Hinboun, and Xe Bang Fai basins.

Hydropower development in Lao PDR can be extremely confusing due to the lack of modern fully labelled maps, hundreds of projects being considered, and various changing names. This map is intended to help clarify.

Though all the currently discussed dams are labelled, information is only in draft form. If you have any suggested amendments, please contact us. Your help is greatly appreciated.
