Creating climate resilience guidelines for the hydropower sector

Wednesday 15 May 2019 | 14:00-15:15

Hydropower will have a prominent role in achieving the Paris Agreement. Hydropower’s resilience and adaptability for future climate scenarios will be fundamental to ensure the hydropower’s role in renewable energy systems and responsible freshwater management.

The hydropower sector is already starting to experience climate change impacts and will need to face more climate-related risks in the future. While, the wider financial community and governmental agencies are engaged in resilient investment for adaptation to climate change.

The Hydropower Climate Resilience Guide will provide practical guidance to ensure robust and resilient hydropower projects that comply with policy-makers’ and lenders’ requirements.
