Achieving good practice in hydropower sustainability

 
 
 

The Hydropower Sustainability Tools define international good and best practice in sustainable hydropower development and are used to assess the sustainability of projects.

The tools provide a common language to allow governments, civil society, financial institutions and the hydropower sector to discuss and evaluate sustainability issues.

The tools are governed by the Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Council’s governance committee, a multi-stakeholder group of representatives from energy companies, government agencies, financial institutions and social and environmental NGOs.
