SHAASAN Webinar 2 – Sustainable Hydropower in Asia hosted by Institute of Hydroecology, MWR & CAS and the University of Southampton.

SHAASAN – Sustainable Hydropower for Africa, Asia and South America Network aims to improve the sustainability of hydropower by protecting the fisheries on which low-income fishing communities in developing nations depend for food security. This will advance environmental impact mitigation technology and develop more sustainable operations and planning practices. We will disseminate outputs and build research capability to benefit other DAC nations, principally the Least Developed and Lower Middle Income Countries in Africa, Asia, and South America.

Time:21:00-22:45 (Beijing time); 14:00-15:30 (UK time)
