In collaboration with conservation groups and the hydropower industry, the International Hydropower Association (IHA) has published guidance for hydropower planners to design and implement projects that carefully co-exist with and support protected conservation areas.

The good practice guide was developed following consultations with a multi-stakeholder Working Group on Protected Areas, which included the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), The Nature Conservancy (TNC), the UNESCO World Heritage Centre, hydropower developers and operators such as EDF, Renewable Energy Holdings, ICE, as well as IHA.
