Demands for faster project turn-overs are on the rise to ensure the bankability of projects. However, successful hydropower projects require a balanced mix of sustainable project management, engineering skills and finance understanding. Only when this mix is balanced through good practice project management will projects be able to meet their goals for the long-term.

The objective of this course is to provide participants with fundamental knowledge of hydropower resources development and management through an Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) approach. This course will provide a general overview of the stages of hydropower development and project management, demonstrating how hydropower development and management can be sustainable throughout the entire project cycle. By focusing on both theoretical and practical issues, participants should be able to contribute more effectively to the development and management of water and energy resources in their own countries.
