January 19, 2021


The Cumulative Impact Assessment and Management: Hydropower Development in the Trishuli River Basin, Nepal was undertaken by IFC to strengthen understanding of environmental and social impacts of hydropower development that go beyond individual project-level impact assessments by considering basin-wide understanding of potential cumulative impacts in the Trishuli River Basin (TRB). The CIA is an outcome of multi-stakeholder consultations, qualitative and quantitative data analysis, and strategic workshops from 2017 to 2019. During this webinar, the findings from the report will be presented followed by a discussion of how the results can be used to promote sustainable development in the basin.
