Launched in 2013, the China Water AS Program promotes industrial water efficiency and has delivered impressive results.
“Hydropower demands are growing too fast to limit your scope to one country,” said Kate Lazarus, team leader for IFC’s Mekong sustainable hydropower program. “We’re approaching sustainability from an Asia-wide perspective.”
