The agenda includes:
An independent scientific study has shown that the impact of run-of-river hydroelectric projects on salmon has been minimal based on the monitoring data provided to date.
The study analysed 44 sites of Run-of-River hydro facilities in the Canadian province of British Columbia developed since the mid-1980s, but the sites assessed were largely limited to more recent developments (involving 23 of 44 sites).
