our mission

Transforming lives
and communities #WithHydropower

Hydropower, when developed sustainably, has brought major advancements in human development by spurring economic growth, creating jobs and improving standards of living.

More than 2 million people are employed in hydropower worldwide. But the benefits of sustainable hydropower reach far beyond the people who work in the sector.

Whether by providing affordable green energy, a means of water supply, irrigation services, flood and drought protection, or bringing social investment, hydropower has brought many positive impacts to communities worldwide.

On #GlobalHydropowerDay, IHA is bringing together a community of organisations and individuals to shine a light on how hydropower has improved lives and brought benefits to communities across the world. We invite you to join the celebration by sharing your stories and spreading the word.
our mission

#WithHydropower we can make a difference

Climate change is a reality that is already affecting many people’s lives around the world. A net zero future is possible, but only if we harness the complementary strengths of all renewables to end our reliance on fossil fuels.

Sustainable hydropower is a clean, green, modern and affordable solution to climate change. By providing a flexible and reliable backup, it enables wind and solar energy to be built at the scale needed to bring global temperature rises under control.

Join us on Global Hydropower Day to celebrate the advancements we have made #WithHydropower and show how we can make a difference in our future net zero ambitions.
