Insuring a Nature Positive World: An insurers' guide to hydropower
June 22, 2022
This publication relates to:
Hydropower dam projects are complex, costly, and devastate the potential benefits that healthy, free-flowing rivers provide, including a source of food for people and animals, habitat space, and a climate crisis solution. This first-of-its-kind guide to hydropower insurance was developed by WWF with the support of the UN Environment Program’s Principles for Sustainable Insurance to facilitate sustainable infrastructure projects and prevent high-impact hydropower projects for the long-term protection of rivers.
