International Hydropower Sustainability Council

Hydropower has a key role to play in sustainable development and significant potential to contribute to climate change mitigation and adaptation. However, it is vital that it is developed in an environmentally and socially sustainable manner. The Hydropower Sustainability Council is the multistakeholder governing body of the Hydropower Sustainability Standard and Tools. Comprised of members from civil society and NGOs, governments, financial institutions and industry, the inclusive nature of the Council ensures that all stakeholder voices are heard in shaping the future of hydropower sustainability.
