The Pahang-Selangor Raw Water Transfer Project in Malaysia (Kelau Dam)

There is a gigantic project being promoted where it transfers water in the tunnel by constructing a dam in the Kelau river flowing at the center of the Malay Peninsula. The purpose is to deal with an increasing water demand for Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur and the surrounding areas.The Japanese government also has already backed up this business, considering an enormous amount of yen loan up to 82.04 billion yen.However, the local NGO is continuously raising its voice to question the necessity of the dam nor the worry about the resident move and the influence on the river ecosystem. Should we allow the Japanese government to invest such an enoumous amount of our tax in "a project without a social mutual agreement" or "a project unnecessary"?
