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

13-17 June 2011 | Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil

Bourbon Cataratas Convention Resort entrance On Friday, participants attended sessions on the potential for combining renewable energy technologies, regional hydropower development and markets and incentives. Speakers emphasized that the objectives of hydroelectric projects will only be achieved when social, environmental and economic concerns are all taken into account to ensure sustainability and respond to the challenges of green growth.

A closing session on the future of sustainable hydropower was followed by IHA's biennial general meeting, which presented the report of work undertaken from 2010-2011 and the report of the governance committee and outlined the process, deadlines and nominees for the upcoming board election. Participants applauded IHA President Abdel-Malek as a leader and champion across multiple fora for the IHA and congratulated all those who worked in the development of the Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol. It was announced that the next IHA Congress will be held in Sarawak, Malaysia, in 2013. In the evening, participants were invited to a closing banquet.
