AUNG MYIN THA, Myanmar — For six years, Daw Kaw Bu has waited to return to the village she was forced to leave to make way for a dam that has yet to be built.

“I pray to God to let me work on my own land again,” she said on a recent afternoon, sitting outside the wood-shingled home in Aung Myin Tha, where she was resettled in early 2011.
