Small hydro power data for 2013 has been provided through a data partnership between REN21 and the ICSHP
Small Hydro Power (ICSHP) is a public and non-profit institution directly under auspices of United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), China’s Ministry of Water Resources and Ministry of Commerce. The mission of ICSHP is to promote small hydropower development worldwide. Since it was established in 1994, ICSHP has trained over 1000 engineers from 60 countries, provided technical consultations, feasibility study, design, equipment supply and installation, organized international conferences/workshops, and successfully compiled the first SHP Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project in China. For more information, please visit our website: www.icshp.org.

The World Small Hydro Development Report 2013 (WSHPDR 2013) is based on the contribution of more than 60 different authors or organizations and is UNIDO’s and ICSHP’s flagship assessment on small hydropower. Containing 20 regional overviews and 149 country-level reports, it is a world-first compilation of global small hydropower data, and is a crucial policy and investment guide. WSHPDR 2013 is accessible via a user-friendly knowledge platform – https://www.smallhydroworld.org, where compiled information is published.

ICSHP is glad to announce that a new updated edition of the report – WSHPDR 2016 is on the way and is expected to be published in the 2016. It will cover more countries and provide deeper analysis of the sector.
