The assessment undertaken was of an operating multipurpose hydropower facility in South Kazakhstan; the Shardara reservoir and hydropower plant (HPP) on the Syrdarya River. The assessment tool utilised was the Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol (Protocol), which enabled determination of a sustainability profile for the project taking into account technical, economic, social, environmental, and governance issues. The Shardara sustainability assessment consisted of four stages: an establishment phase (pre-September 2010), a Preparation Mission (20-23 September 2010), the Main Assessment (18-22 October 2010), Report Production (November 2010). Follow-up dialogue took place through 2011. This solution contributed towards Target 5 by offering an on-ground application of the Protocol.
