For hydropower projects, what is an environmental flow regime and why is it important?
Environmental flows, or E-flows, describe the quantity and quality of water flows allocated to sustain freshwater and estuarine ecosystems and the human livelihoods and well-being that depend on these ecosystems. E-flows are a central tenet of integrated water resources management (IWRM ) that water-resource developments should balance exploitation of the river with the protection of its natural resources and the ecosystem services as well as livelihoods.
