Nepal is a country rich in water resources. Many of Nepal’s rivers have been developed and many more have hydropower dams and irrigation infrastructure projects proposed on them. While these projects can bring certain services, they can also impact the cultural, environmental, and economic values that natural rivers provide. WWF and partners conducted a series of analyses to inform system-scale energy planning for safe development and river conservation.
Through the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS), WWF works with global leaders in sustainable water management to promote the use of fresh water in a way that is socially, economically, and environmentally beneficial.
