About Sustainability

These pages identify and explain important aspects of sustainable practice in the hydropower industry, and identify schemes that demonstrate how specific issues can be addressed. It is intended that these pages are used as a learning forum to assist with sustainable development and ongoing operation of hydropower projects.

This is a growing resource and is being regularly updated by IHA and other contributors. There are current short falls in understanding in this area and if you have a contribution to make, we are willing to receive and credit your contribution.

This source of information regarding hydropower sustainability is a work in progress and will grow in the coming months and years.
