As part of our mission to advance sustainable hydropower, we offer training on sector-relevant tools and issues. Upcoming opportunities are detailed below.
Accredited Assessor training
Gain the necessary skills and knowledge to become an accredited assessor for the hydropower sector’s leading sustainability assessment tools.
This five-day course will cover the internationally recognised Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol, including its new criteria on climate change mitigation and resilience.
Participants will be among the first to gain accredited assessor status for the newly developed Environmental, Social and Governance Gap Analysis Tool (ESG Tool).
G-res Tool training
New sustainability and environmental criteria are currently being developed for the provision of green bonds and other forms of climate finance. These criteria are increasingly requiring more detailed assessments of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, including those caused by the creation of a reservoir.
This three-day interactive training course has been designed to allow individuals with a basic knowledge of geographic information systems and reservoir GHG dynamics to independently use the GHG Reservoir (G-res) Tool and accurately interpret the results.
The course includes a scientific introduction to the tool and a step-by-step tutorial on using it, as well as training on case scenarios and results analysis. When the course is finished, participants will be accredited as certified G-res Tool users.
