Nicaragua canal survey off to rocky start marked by fear and mistrust

first_imgAccording to studies by specialists from the Institute of Geology at China’s Earthquake Administration, [Nicaragua’s] volcanoes will not negatively affect the normal operation of the Gran Canal of Nicaragua. With the adoption of the most advanced international design theories, and adequate construction measures, it is guaranteed that the canal will not suffer damages in the event of an earthquake, nor will [an earthquake] negatively affect the project.The CRCC also states that since 2013, several experts have been conducting field studies of the route’s topography, geology and hydrology, resulting in detailed studies of the canal route. Shouldn’t those studies be shared with the public? Costa Rican Foreign Minister Manuel González – whose country shares a border with Nicaragua on the Río San Juan, which joins Lake Nicaragua to the Caribbean Sea – thinks so. In comparison, if you want to find out the environmental impact and mitigation efforts of the ongoing $5.25 billion Panama Canal expansion project, all 11 chapters of the assessment are posted online for anyone to peruse. Last week as I was driving through the sweltering Nicaraguan countryside in the southwestern department of Rivas, a convoy of soldiers traveling at midday on the Inter-American Highway caught my eye. It’s not unusual to see troop movements in a Central American country with an army, but these guys looked liked they were on assignment.A check of the local social media rumor mill revealed chatter that police and soldiers were indeed moving about Rivas in the presence of “chinos,” and it was somehow related to the Gran Canal project.Rivas is ground zero for President Daniel Ortega’s ambitious $40 billion, 278-kilometer interoceanic canal. The canal promises to make Nicaragua — the second poorest nation in the Americas — “one of the richest countries in Central America,” according to plans published by the China Railway Siyuan Survey and Design Group Co., Ltd., and apparently approved by the secretive Hong Kong Nicaragua Development company, or HKND, which is tasked with designing and building the canal.The Pacific point of entry is the mouth of the Brito River, in Rivas, where a large petroleum port and free trade zone are scheduled to be built. Not far from that, a tourism complex is being planned. The Brito free trade zone, according to the plans, will cover approximately 29 square kilometers and provide residential housing space for 40,000 people and create 113,000 jobs.Three months remain before the start of construction on the massive infrastructure project that will profoundly change the landscape of this volcanic isthmus. Skeptics have asked a lot of questions about the company HKND and the canal. Those inquiries often are met with glaring silence or vaguely worded company press releases. But last week, Rivas residents got a taste of the future – and they didn’t seem to like it very much.Those soldiers I saw turned out to be armed escorts, along with police, for Chinese land surveyors from the Changjiang Institute of Survey, Planning, Design and Research Co., Ltd., one of the Asian giant’s top state-owned engineering firms. The same company built the Three Gorges hydropower project on the Yangtze River in China. The world’s largest hydroelectric dam set the record for number of displaced people (1.2 million) and cities and towns flooded (13 cities, 140 towns, 1,350 villages), according to the environmental group International Rivers, and resulted in “floating archipelagoes of garbage,” according to The New York Times. Soldiers accompany Chinese land surveyors in Rivas, Nicaragua. (Screengrab from Confidencial’s “Esta Semana”)The weekly TV program “Esta Semana,” hosted by Carlos F. Chamorro of the news magazine Confidencial, produced a recent investigation on the land surveying. Chamorro, who is highly critical of the Ortega regime and its canal plans, sent reporter Wilfredo Miranda to Rivas to take a closer look at what’s going on (see the video above, in Spanish). There, Confidencial found residents who felt violated and intimidated by soldiers, police and Chinese company representatives.Land surveyors arrived several times and entered properties without permission, Rodrigo Velásquez, a community organizer in Orejuelo, a village on the shores of Lake Nicaragua, told Confidencial. “They’re obligating residents to sign.” It’s unclear what exactly residents are being asked to sign. The slips of paper, in both Mandarin and Spanish, could be permission waivers for surveyors to enter their properties. Or their purpose could be more nefarious. Residents had no idea what was happening.“They didn’t say anything, they just entered como Pedro por su casa,” said resident María del Carmen Junes, using a Spanish idiom that translates as, “like they owned the place.”“They enter the homes without permission and don’t explain much,” chimed in a Gringo named Chuck Stone. “There isn’t very much transparency here.”The Chinese inspectors asked to see land titles and deeds, offering to pay “double” the cadastral value of locals’ homes and promising to relocate the occupants, although they didn’t say where, when or how.Octavio Ortega, president of a foundation of Rivas municipalities called FUNDEMAR, told Confidencial that the announcement of the canal’s route has caused wild speculation and the skyrocketing of the cost of land – up to 10 times normal market prices, in some cases. “You can’t even imagine,” Octavio Ortega said. “With what money are these people going to be able to afford to relocate?” Maybe they’ll find some of that affordable housing in the Brito free trade zone, but no one really knows because the company isn’t talking. Neither is Daniel Ortega. A projected map of the Brito free trade zone in Rivas, Nicaragua. (Screengrab from the “Proyecto de Desarrollo Integral del Gran Canal de Nicaragua”)A few days after the surveyors’ confrontation with residents, the company ERM, which is tasked with conducting environmental impact assessments for the project, held a closed-door meeting with a select group of locals. But they didn’t extend invitations to everyone in the area who will be affected by looming expropriations.A letter shown in the Confidencial report states the purpose of the meeting was to conduct a “dialogue and an exchange of ideas regarding the social and economic reality of the area with a small group of invitees who have been selected for the role they play in the community. … For this reason, we ask you not to extend this invitation to other members of the community because it would be impossible to comply with the methodology or the foreseen goals with a large group.” A Confidencial reporter who tried to attend the meeting was asked to leave.Said Chamorro:The testimonials in this report contradict what the Chinese company HKND says, in that their employees will only enter properties after obtaining expressed written consent. Evidently they are committing abuses that are aggravated by the presence of the police and the military, who shouldn’t be participating in an activity that is supposed to be strictly administrative.The message, to me, that they’re conveying to the people is one of force and intimidation. But the problem at the heart here is that the government continues putting “la carreta delante de los bueyes” [the cart before the horse]. Before threatening expropriations, they should first present the financial, commercial and environmental studies that show the viability of this canal project. And they should present a detailed timetable of how they will execute this project.Because the only thing they’re doing now is generating more uncertainty among the people while conducting surveys for expropriations – which by the way, are based on an unconstitutional law that doesn’t guarantee that landowners will be paid market value for their properties. And that’s why HKND has no response to these questions.RoadmapWhile communities in San Jorge, Rivas, are small and sometimes isolated, the canal will stretch 278 kilometers to the Caribbean coast – a length 3.5 times greater than the Panama Canal. Near the Caribbean, plans call for the creation of a new artificial lake called Atlanta. Covering 395 square kilometers – about the size of the U.S. city of Denver – Lake Atlanta is to become a “center for ecology, tourism and aquaculture.” (And, hopefully, no floating archipelagoes of garbage like those created by Three Gorges Dam.)On Ometepe Island, which Lonely Planet calls “Fantasy Island” because of its unique archaeology, geology and natural beauty, and at three other locations, developers will build large tourism resorts: Locations of planned tourism centers along the proposed interoceanic Nicaragua Canal. (Screengrab from the “Proyecto de Desarrollo Integral del Gran Canal de Nicaragua”)It’s hard to say what those tourism centers will look like, but they’ll probably be similar to this, which will be built on the Pacific coast: A golf resort planned for the Pacific coast. (Screengrab from the “Proyecto de Desarrollo Integral del Gran Canal de Nicaragua”)Rivas also will get a new class-4E airport. If it’s anything like Managua’s Augusto C. Sandino International Airport, the interior likely will be adorned in a similar fashion (notice the Chinese flag covering Nicaragua’s own flag; I have no idea what the Mandarin writing says. Can anyone lend us a hand with the translation? *Update: We found out what it says, see the end of the story.): Travelers arriving to Managua’s international airport are greeted by this painted advertorial in Mandarin, which offers money transfers to China of up to $500 for a $23 fee. The Tico TimesWhile the promise of converting the region’s poorest country into one of the richest is enticing and a worthwhile goal, what’s troubling is the profound lack of transparency regarding the process. In addition, the long-term social and environmental consequences – not to mention machtpolitik, sovereignty and even identity concerns – of such an elephantine effort are at the very least worthy of discussion and robust debate.Yet, with little information, more than half of the country’s citizens favor the canal, saying it will “help the economy, promote tourism, generate jobs and improve the country’s image,” and only one in 10 oppose it (that number might increase with more land surveys). Even my cab driver, a young, edgy, outspoken man in his 20s who lives near the Costa Rican border, thinks the canal will finally restore the glory the Nicaraguan nation deserves (and put Panama to shame, as he described it).Others, like the Nicaraguan Academy of Science, fear the promise that the canal will deliver Nicaraguans to the economic promised land is a myth. In a 178-page report (download the PDF here), the Academy noted a “series of difficulties in conducting an in-depth analysis on the proposal includes a broad lack of documentation, as essential information has not been forthcoming in a transparent manner. Although we have the canal’s concession law, this lacks any type of specific explanation about the project’s route, which makes it complicated to formulate an independent analysis.” Facebook Comments What we do know about the Gran Canal de Nicaragua is that it will cut across Lake Nicaragua (Lago Cocibolca), where Ometepe is located, the largest freshwater lake in Central America and an important source of drinking water. In 2008, Daniel Ortega – under CAFTA’s Environmental Cooperation Program – asked the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to help clean up the lake and deal with its sewage and wastewater treatment problems. So what will be the environmental impact on the lake when 5,100 ships – including 400,000-ton grain carriers and 320,000-ton petroleum tankers – traverse it annually? What are the potential consequences and mitigation plans in place if one of those fuel ships has an accident?And what about seismic activity? Here’s the CRCC’s response on that: What is the implementation schedule and when will the feasibility studies including the technical, economic and environmental impact of the canal be finished and disclosed?Will these studies, paid by HKND, be subjected to the scrutiny of impartial national and international experts?If these studies are still ongoing, and therefore the viability of the project and its environmental impact is still unknown, how can they affirm that the construction of the canal will start in December?What will be the environmental impact of dredging Lake Nicaragua and how will its excavation and dredging affect the country’s most important strategic water resources?Who will oversee our national interests given the fact that the Ortega-created Grand Canal Authority has demonstrated little authority and no autonomy?center_img Those are some pretty hefty – yet reasonable – questions to ask. So when can we expect some answers? Or will they just come to us, out of the blue, on a hot, sunny day while driving down the Inter-American Highway?Further recommended reading: the Nicaraguan Academy of Sciences report on the Gran Canal of Nicaragua, in Spanish (download the PDF here.)UPDATE: Thanks to our inquisitive friend Bill H., we translated the Mandarin writing on the wall at Managua’s airport says. It says you can send money to China up to $500 for a $23 fee. There are 445 service venues in the district. Guess they’re expecting a lot of Chinese workers to walk through those airport gates and a large demand for money transfers. Outside Nicaragua, industry insiders seem perplexed and baffled by the ambitious plan. “If the Nicaragua canal will ever be built, the final cost will be much higher than $40 billion,” Chaim Sacham, a former senior executive with Zim Integrated Shipping Services, told JOC.com (link requires registration). “This is not to say that it will not be built, but if it will be built, it will be a waste of a lot of money, and it will not bring any positive ROI for many years, if at all.”Plus, some say the Panama Canal expansion will render Nicaragua’s canal irrelevant. So why build it all?Here’s what Sacham told JOC.com’s Editor-at-Large Peter T. Leach:“To the best of my knowledge, HKND Group and its chairman, Wang Jing, have nothing to do with engineering and/or construction,” Sacham said. “However, under the exclusive contract, Wang can skip building the canal (and making any payments to Nicaragua) and instead simply operate lucrative tax-free side projects. This leads me to say that if this canal will ever be built, it will not be by HKND Group but by others, and it will take much longer than the five years that they are saying it will take.”Chamorro summed up the skepticism best, when he asked the following questions in a July column titled, “Digging in the Dark“: Nicaragua’s proposed canal route.

Survey Indicates Builder Confidence on the Rise

first_img April 15, 2015 508 Views in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News Survey Indicates Builder Confidence on the Rise According to the April 2015 Housing Market Index (HMI) report, home builder confidence is on the rise in the U.S., particularly on newly built, single-family homes.The report, released today by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and Wells Fargo, indicates that builder confidence has increased four points–going from 52 to 56–since this time last month. In March, these numbers were actually down one point from the month previous.Much of this increased confidence, the report says, is due to consistently low interest rates and increased job growth throughout the country.But improved builder confidence isn’t the only thing the HMI survey found. The report also shows jumps in other measurables as well. Builders’ expected buyer traffic increased four points, current sales conditions rose three points, and future sales expectations saw an increase, too, jumping from 59 to 64 points in the last month.According to NAHB Chief Economist David Crowe, these sales expectations numbers are at the highest level they’ve been all year–a good omen for the months to come.“This uptick shows builders are feeling optimistic that the housing market with continue to strengthen throughout 2015,” Crowe said.NAHB’s report also sheds light on regional differences in the housing industry. While the South and Northwest saw distinct rises in their HMI scores, the Midwest and West regions decreased, dropping by two and three points, respectively.According to NAHB’s Eye on Housing, these lower scores may be due to problems with lot availability, labor availability and other scarcities in the regions. Additionally, construction, land and labor costs are also on the rise, which makes it difficult for many builders to negotiate on pricing.The HMI report is derived from a monthly survey conducted by the NAHB. The survey asks home builders across the U.S. to rate their perceptions of current sales conditions, as well as their sales expectations for the next six months, as either “good,” “fair,” or “poor.” It also asks builders if their rate of prospective buyers is “high to very high,” “average,” or “low to very low.” These scores are then averaged, and any score over 50 indicates generally positive conditions in the market.

were those who saw sinister designs in our presence here There are others who were uneasy at the strength of our partnership Some even tried to discourage us” “Afghanistan will succeed only when

lives not destroy a nation” Referring to the violence in Afghanistan for decades Modi said “Too much blood has flown down Kabul river Too many tragedies have darkened the mountain slopes Too many dreams have burnt in the fire of a senseless conflict” He also urged the world to support Afghanistan “We must support Afghanistan without time lines because the new clouds of extremism and terrorism are rising even as the old ones continue to darken our skies; and because Afghans are not only fighting for their future but are standing up for all of us and a safer world” he said The prime minister said it is time for all Afghans everyone in the region and the rest of the world to come together “We know that Afghanistan’s success will require the cooperation and support of each of its neighbours

future in which IT stands for information technology not international terrorism He saluted the people of Afghanistan saying a country with an abiding faith in the tradition of Jirga has chosen the

special relationship “And the Atal Block unites us in spirit because Atal means hero in Pashto and in Hindi it means to be firm It captures the spirit of Afghanistan and of our friendship” he said The institutions that India are establishing together are helping rebuild agriculture and mining in Afghanistan and make advanced medical care available in Kabul “You have been at the crossroads of history And your history tells us that you will never let yourself become a theatre of competition; or serve the designs of others For you live by the creed extolled by poet Kushal Khan Khattak that Nation’s honor and nation’s fame on life they have a prior claim” he said The prime minister said Afghans have the wisdom to seek peace with neighbours but also the courage to defend their freedom “And Afghans of all persuasions must have the right to seek peace among themselves” “You can be Pushtoons Uzbeks Tajiks Hazaras You can be Muslims Hindus and Sikhs But you are proud Afghans who can come together as one nation and one people You may have fought in the name of religion; or in the cause of identity But it is now time for Afghans to come together in peace” he told the Parliamentarians Modi said those waging war from outside must seek a path to Parliament building and this hall “Those seeking territory through gun must seek power through ballot Those who have destroyed homes must now rebuild their nation For this is your land and these are your people “And it must be on your terms on your genius through your own process and your own spirit of brotherhood Not driven by the calculations or ambitions of others” he added Modi said that it was time for all Afghans everyone in the region and the rest of the world to come together “The sacrifices must not go in vain The flame of hope should not die No girl that steps into the world should slip into darkness of denied opportunities No son should face the choice of gun or refuge in a distant land” he said “No mother should fear bringing a child into this world No leader should lose a brother because he spoke for Afghan freedom to choose friends No one kneeling in prayer in a mosque should be killed in the name of religion No elder should look back on his youth wasted in conflict and see the same future for his grandchild” the Prime Minister said Modi said that every Afghan youth should see a future in which IT stands for information technology not international terrorism “For the promise and the opportunities of the 21st century belong to Afghan youth as much as anyone else in the world For India this is a deeply held commitment Your suffering is our pain Your dreams are our duty Your strength is our belief Your courage is our inspiration Above all your friendship is our honour” he told
