Reventazon Hydroelectric Power Project - Request IV

Country: Costa Rica

Reception date: August 7, 2017

Current Status:  Open


Three residents of San Joaquín de Siquirres, Costa Rica.

Summary of the Request

The Requesters allege damage to their property and economic loss, connected with the Reventazon Hydroelectric Power Project. Specifically, the Requesters claim that by expropriating part of the farm, the project cut-off the access to the aquifers that previously supplied water to the entire property and were used for different productive activities such as agriculture irrigation and water for their livestock. The above, per the Request, has caused significant economic losses and harm to the Requesters’ health.

This Request is linked to request MICI-IDB-CR-2016-0112, which was declared ineligible because the Requestors had not had prior contact with Management.

On August 10 2017, MICI notified the Requesters and Bank Management that the Request was registered.
