A hydroelectric project proposed by Tenaga Nasional Berhad in Telom, Pahang, Malaysia
will inundate six Orang Asli villagers whose residents have relocated to a new resettlement.
However, TNB still needs their agreements and provide fair and agreeable compensation.
This paper analyzes the process associated with the exercise. It is a descriptive
analysis of activities conducted in preparing the plans as well as principles and
values considered in calculating the proposed compensation and resettlement. It is
hoped that the more sensitive and inclusive approach can be emulated in future projects
affecting Orang Asli and others affected by developments
