International Hydropower Association (IHA) 2011
World Congress on Advancing Sustainable Hydropower

13-17 June 2011 | Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil

Greg Tracz (IHA) greeted Narith Bun, Ministry of Industry, Mines and Energy, Cambodia. On Monday, 13 June 2011, the International Hydropower Association (IHA) began convening preliminary events that will lead into its 2011 biennial World Congress on Advancing Sustainable Hydropower in the latter half of the week.

Throughout the day, the IHA, the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank convened the first Global Workshop on Regional Cooperation for Hydropower Development, with opening remarks by Miguel Zydan Soria (Itaipu Binacional) and IHA Executive Director Richard Taylor.

Participants heard panel presentations on themes including accessing international markets for power, regional trading of power between nations, hydropower on transboundary issues, and structuring for public and private sector involvement. Each panel was met with numerous questions from participants, and several lively discussions ensued. After the thematic sessions, rapporteurs offered summaries of each theme, and Song Dongsheng (Sinohydro Corporation) gave comments on the day's discussions.

In the afternoon, members of the IHA Sustainability Network met to discuss the upcoming launch of a new revision of the IHA's sustainability protocol during this week's Congress, and future goals.
