This 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 a multiproject, basin-wide understanding of potential cumulative impacts in the Trishuli River Basin (TRB), an area of 32,000 square kilometers across the Central Development Region of Nepal. This final CIA report is the outcome of stakeholder consultations, qualitative and quantitative data analysis, and strategic workshops from December 2017 to January 2019.
