Risk and risk mitigation analytical framework

This analytical framework has been developed to aid risk identification, measurement and management for large hydropower projects in low- and low-middle-income countries. The framework provides a structured approach to the analysis of risk which can aid governments, developers, lenders and investors in maximising the likelihood of a project obtaining sustainable finance.
