covid-19_paper_cover.png

The Covid-19 pandemic is having a devastating impact across the world. Once the worst of the health crisis has passed, it is vitally important that the stimulus packages that follow not only maximise the short-term economic impacts but also accelerate the transition toward cleaner and lower-carbon technologies and infrastructure.

This IHA position paper sets out the immediate impacts of the crisis on the hydropower sector, looks at how developers and operators have responded, and outlines important hydropower-specific recommendations to assist governments and international financial institutions as they develop their economic recovery plans.
