Extreme weather events and changes in hydrological patterns can be expected in a world altered by climate change.
Hydropower systems are characterised by their longevity and are traditionally designed on the basis of historical hydrological data.
Planning hydropower systems from a long-term, climate-resilient perspective will ensure that future generations inherit infrastructure that will not be compromised by climate change.
IHA has led the way in developing a tool for reliably estimating the carbon emissions of hydropower.
IHA has published the Hydropower Sector Climate Resilience Guide to ensure that hydropower projects will be resilient to climate change.
The guide provides workable international good practice guidance for project owners, governments, financial institutions and private developers.
