Role of the Biodiversity Management and Action Plan for Hydropower Sustainability (Advancing Sustainable Hydropower: Biodiversity and Management, Nepal - Virtual Webinar Series)

Date : 20-Apr-2021

Time : 19:00 – 20:30, Nepal time

Venue : Webinar (Zoom)

Development projects such as hydropower projects are encouraged to develop a Biodiversity Management Plan (BMP) and/or a Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) to detail their approach to mitigating project impacts on biodiversity. These plans facilitate implementation by the developer, contractors and partners. This webinar will present a model BMP to showcase mitigation options that follow the mitigation hierarchy to avoid and reduce impacts on biodiversity during construction and operation phases. Approaches for restoring and osetting biodiversity through a BAP will also be discussed.

A case study of the Upper Trishuli-1 HPP BMP will be presented.
