Welcome to the 2nd International Conference on Sustainability in Hydropower
Please mark in your calendar this follow-up conference about "Sustainable Hydropower – ecological mitigation, best practise and governance", to attend exciting days in Mid-Norway in June 2023. We will discuss how to improve the environmental sustainability of the hydropower sector in the perspective of the EU Water Framework Directive, taxonomy of sustainable finance and the UN Sustainability goals, while enjoying the northern evenings.
This conference is a follow up of a previous sustainable hydropower conference arranged in Northern Sweden in June 2019, hosted by Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management (SWAM) and the County Governour of Norbotten.
