The Request for Inspection for The Itaparica Resettlement and Irrigation Project outlines problems caused to the indigenous communities displaced by the construction of the Itaparica dam. The Request, supported by the group Polo Sindical do Submedio Sao Francisco, states that the resettlement plans have not been fulfilled and that the better living conditions promised to the resettled people have not occurred. The Request acknowledges the importance of the dam in bringing electricity to millions of people, but also states that over 150,000 people were resettled and have not received the improved living conditions that were promised.
