Uganda’s experiences of developing large hydropower with various different types of financing can provide examples to other low income countries, where much of the hydropower potential remains underutilised. In addition to providing their energy benefits, sustainably developed hydropower projects can help countries to adapt to changing climate by providing much needed water management services including seasonal water storage.
This video is a MUST VIEW for anyone wanting to deepen their knowledge of the financing and sustainability of hydropower dams.
