Highlights for Thursday, 23 May 2013

The International Hydropower Association (IHA) World Congress continued on Thursday, 23 May, in Kuching, Malaysia. Participants engaged in two plenary sessions, a CEO Roundtable discussing modern hydropower and one on informing decision-making in the context of emerging roles for the Protocol. Two parallel focus sessions took place, one on investing in hydropower and another on working with project-affected communities. A special lecture during lunch discussed the impact of delays on hydropower projects, in particular on the ability of projects to deliver benefits. Side events in the afternoon covered resettlement and operationalizing multipurpose hydropower.
