The Hydropower Sector Climate Resilience Guide offers a methodology for identifying, assessing and managing climate risks to enhance the resilience of hydropower projects.
The guide responds to the need for international industry good practice on how to incorporate climate resilience into hydropower project planning, design and operations. It seeks to evolve from the default use of historical data and the assumption that hydrological variability will remain the same over the lifetime of a project. The guide also addresses how best to access, use and interpret climate change modelling and observed climate data.
The Hydropower Sector Climate Resilience Guide was developed with the financial and technical support of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the World Bank Group and its Korea Green Growth Trust Fund.
