IHA and Covid-19
Covid-19 economic stimulus packages should maximise the benefits of infrastructure investment while accelerating the transition towards cleaner and lower-carbon technologies such as hydropower.
Our commitment to members
In adjusting to the new global reality, we believe the hydropower sector needs a seat at the international table to influence the strategic and policy decisions that will inevitably follow. We will listen to our members, help you to achieve the highest standards in sustainability, and be your voice on the world stage.
As a truly global, digital-first organisation, IHA will continue advocating for our members and providing online services, through our website Hydropower.org, through our members’ community Hydropower Pro, and through our Knowledge Networks. We will continue monitoring the sector, publishing and promoting good practices.
