Description of the Project:
Objectives: Create a basis for strategy development of donors for sustainable operation and management of (big) hydropower plants (adapting financing conditions, promotion of favourable business and operational models, capacity building programs, technology transfer)
Activities: establish a questionnaire to analyse operation and management aspects including technical, institutional, operational, economic parameters; support workshop participants in their preparation work for workshop contributions, content and methodological preparation of the Workshop: presentation topics, “market stands”, „fish bowl“, working groups, half day excursion to a hydropower plant in Lavey etc. in close cooperation with the organisers (SWP, SECO, WB) to secure the expected results; documentation of workshop and results in a comprehensive report and a summary on key conclusions.
Results: new insights about (pre-)conditions for sustainable operation and management of (big) hydropower plants thanks to an intense exchange process during a professional workshop.
