With the launch of the Hydropower Sustainability Guidelines on Good International Industry Practice (HGIIP), the sector now has a suite of tools to harmonise the understanding of sustainability in a hydropower context.
Performance against the guidelines can be assessed through two complementary tools: the Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol (HSAP), which measures performance above and below the defined good practice. In addition, the Hydropower Sustainability ESG Gap Analysis (HESG) Tool can check for gaps against good practice on relevant topics, and includes a gap management plan to improve processes and outcomes.
The session will explore the best ways of using the guidelines and assessment tools to guide and measure performance with an optimum level of efficiency.
Furthermore, the session will discuss how the tools can be used to improve institutional capacity and enhance the development impact of hydropower projects worldwide.
Finally, panellists will share insights from their own experiences and discuss recommendations moving forward.
