Ayeyarwady river UPSC NOTE

 Why in news

  • Myanmar’s junta has revived plans for a $3.6 billion Chinese-backed dam in the north of the country that was suspended more than 10 years ago following huge public opposition

  • The project to build the 6,000-megawatt Myitsone dam in northern Kachin state was ended in 2011 under a previous junta.

  • Its opponents said the dam on the Ayeyarwady river — which would have exported around 90% of the power it generated to China — would cause huge environmental damage and bring little benefit to the country.

Ayeyarwady river

  • The Ayeyarwady River (Irrawaddy River) is the largest river in Myanmar

  • Originating from the confluence of the N'mai and Mali rivers, it flows from north to south before emptying through the Irrawaddy Delta in the Ayeyarwady Region into the Andaman Sea

  • Animals potentially impacted include the endangered Irrawaddy dolphin and the critically endangered Ganges shark.

  • The Irrawaddy River bisects Myanmar from north to south and empties through the nine-armed Irrawaddy Delta into the Indian Ocean
