The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) operates a high capacity coal-fired power plant in Mae Moh District, Thailand. In the past, EGAT relocated villagers for developmental purposes. This project evaluated the impacts of the different types of relocation projects, and determined which, if any, would be acceptable in the future. In order to obtain the information necessary for such an evaluation, surveys were administered to over 400 villagers and supplemented with nine focus group interviews.
