This case study report describes the comprehensive approach to gender inclusiveness resettlement in the Song Bung 4 Hydropower Project in a remote mountainous region of Quang Nam Province, Viet Nam. Based on discussions with people in affected villages, the report illustrates how the project is promoting women's empowerment through participatory approaches and is bringing emerging gender benefits to ethnic minority communities that were previously isolated from economic and social development. In so doing, it offers good practice and lessons learned for other large infrastructure projects in Viet Nam and the wider region where resettlement is unavoidable.
