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

13-17 June 2011 | Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil

Deputy Minister Márcio Zimmermann answered a question during the press conference. On Wednesday, 15 June, participants gathered for the opening session of the International Hydropower Association (IHA) World Congress on Advancing Sustainable Hydropower, followed by a special intervention by the World Energy Council and a panel-led discussion on integrating water and energy policies.

In the afternoon, participants took part in sessions on climate change and hydropower, a presentation on the Belo Monte hydropower project, and parallel sessions on: hydropower’s greenhouse gas footprint; hydropower and water consumption; and hydropower development and freshwater conservation.

Among other things, discussions highlighted increased dialogue amongst all stakeholders, the importance of hydropower in combating climate change, and early planning and coordination for successful hydropower projects to lessen impacts on surrounding communities and environment.

In the evening, participants were invited to a full moon dinner at Iguaçu Falls.
