Celebrate hydropower’s achievements on Global Hydropower Day

11 October 2022

Today marks the first ever Global Hydropower Day, a day that will celebrate the positive impacts of sustainable hydropower on people and communities around the world.

Hydropower, when developed sustainably, has brought major advancements in human development by spurring economic growth, creating jobs and improving standards of living.

More than 2 million people are employed in hydropower worldwide. But the benefits of sustainable hydropower reach far beyond the people who work in the sector.

Whether by providing affordable green energy, a means of water supply, irrigation services, flood and drought protection, or bringing social investment, hydropower has brought many positive impacts to communities worldwide.

On #GlobalHydropowerDay, the International Hydropower Association (IHA)is bringing together a community of organisations and individuals to shine a light on how hydropower has improved lives and brought benefits to communities across the world

Share your success stories and spread the word via social media using the hashtag #GlobalHydropowerDay.
