We have received the following from an individual with experience in the region :
This is a very similar situation to Phu Horm in Thailand,
although the emphasis there was probably more strongly on the
environmental and the stakeholder management than on load capacities
of bridges, water availability and the like.
However, I would imagine from what I know of Indonesia that the
stakeholder management issues would be very significant.
It is even more difficult to get all the stakeholders on board in
Indonesia than it is in Thailand, and as we found in Pangkah the
response tends to escalate to threats of and actual violence very
If I had one suggestion it is to not underestimate the need to
manage a very varied group of stakeholders and double or treble the
time you think it will take to do the 'socialisation' as they call
it in Indonesia. Get it wrong and I can send you the pictures of the
burning vehicles that results.
