For hydropower projects, what is an environmental flow regime and why is it important?

Environmental flows, or E-flows, describe the quantity and quality of water flows allocated to sustain freshwater and estuarine ecosystems and the human livelihoods and well-being that depend on these ecosystems. E-flows are a central tenet of integrated water resources management (IWRM ) that water-resource developments should balance exploitation of the river with the protection of its natural resources and the ecosystem services as well as livelihoods.

International Finance Corporation (IFC) and International Centre for Hydropower (ICH) are conducting
a 3-day intensive training course for technical practitioners in Nepal to improve their knowledge on environmental flows and hydropower development.

Course instructors from ICH and IFC will introduce topics including:
• Environmental flows theory and terms
• Hydrology and the environment
• Environmental flows assessment – global and Nepal examples
• Stakeholder engagement and social aspects of E-flows

Target Group
The course is aimed for Nepali E-flows, environmental, and hydropower practitioners and related government officials.
