The International Hydropower Association (IHA) is a non-profit organisation with a vibrant network of members and partners active in more than 100 countries.
Since our formation in 1995, we have supported the sector on a remarkable journey, as the world’s installed hydropower capacity has grown from 625 GW to over 1,000 GW – catalysing economic development and improving people’s lives around the world.
Our mission is to advance sustainable hydropower by building and sharing knowledge on its role in renewable energy systems, responsible freshwater management and climate change solutions.
We achieve this through four strategic objectives:
• Advancing policies and strategies that strengthen the sector’s performance
• Building a vibrant, inclusive and proactive hydropower community
• Creating an open, innovative and trusted platform for knowledge
• Delivering value to members throughout the world
