Beschreibung

As this book demonstrates, it is essential to involve stakeholders in assessments of hydropower development. The author targets policy formation after the UNCED and UNSSD conventions. By drawing on some dozen project cases, the author shows how policy changes have gradually influenced project design and implementation. Readers gain new insights into the reality behind hydropower policy changes as they have evolved over the last decade.



Klappentext

This book emphasizes the importance of involving stakeholders in data formation related to assessments of hydropower development. This is a prerequiste if projects are to be sustainable. The study targets policy formation after the UNCED and UNSSD conventions, and how a discrepancy emerges between policy and its implementation by using hydropower development as an extended case. At global and national levels new policies make it mandatory for implementing agencies to introduce or expand social considerations far beyond old practices. This calls for new emphases in problem areas as well as methods to optimize the access information required by policy for proper implementation. By drawing on about a dozen project cases, with among others Swedish Sida support, examples show how policy change has gradually influenced project design and implementation, but also how this change process is slow and reliant on approvement from the dominating technical and economic traditions for project assessment. The reader will find a detailed account giving insight into the reality behind policy changes as they have evolved during the last decade and gradually permeated current policy, as expressed in the call for new data formation methods. The book provides a unique account for sustainable development related policy enforcement. It shows how the sustainability drive combines with democracy and grassroot involvement to influence the stakeholder formation of project details. TOC:Relating Hydropower Planning to Global Conventions.- Sustainable Development Issues in Hydropower Planning.- Social Catchments of Hydropower.- Hydropower and Regional Development for Poverty Reduction.- Decentralisation and a Rights Approach in Hydropower Development.- Hydropower Implementation Performance for Sustainable Development.



Zusammenfassung
This book concerns footprints of the international environmental conventions in action. Hydropower projects have been selected as test case. The study is based on participatory research into a number of cases where implementation needs to meet new data requirements made by policy makers. It is not about ?ndings on - dropower in studies, whether consultancies or other kind. Results in the various - ports are accordinglynot presented here other than to sometimes illustrate how they re?ect on sustainable development. The locations of projects are not even given by maps since the purpose is to see how response to changes in environmental policy may give rise to changes in methodologies. The main issue is abstract in this sense, withfocusonhowsustainabledevelopmentmaybeimplemented,usinghydropower as an example. The global environmental conventions are seen in this study as drivers and the activities re?ected on are just that; re?ections that seek to respond and lift policy into implementation style. The purpose when making references to a speci?c set of studies is not to look for their results but for design; how experience is brought into policy formulation to supervise the evaluator in turn to respond with new types of information for project implementation. The study is requested by Sida, the Swedish International Development Agency.
