Feedback Survey

The International Hydropower Association is developing the Sustainable hydropower website to identify and showcase the good performers in the hydropower industry.

This website provides basic information on the aspects of sustainability relevant to the hydropower industry, identifies management and mitigation approaches for each aspect, and identifies and summarises schemes that have put these approaches into practice. Inclusion of a scheme on the website is dependent on the scheme demonstrating generally good economic, social and environmental performance, and on top of this demonstrating good management of a particular aspect that would provide an example to others in the industry.

This document is a feedback survey to assist with further development of this website.
