The Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol (‘The Protocol’) is a framework for assessing the sustainability of hydropower projects. It promotes the continuous improvement of hydropower sustainability performance, and provides a common language for shared dialogue on over 20 sustainability topics. The Protocol was developed between 2008 and 2010 by a multi-stakeholder forum of project developers and operators, regulators, non-governmental organisations, investors and international agencies. This Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Forum worked intensively over the course of 2008 to 2010 to develop the content of the Protocol. Forum members included Transparency International, Oxfam, WWF, The Nature Conservancy and a range of financial institutions and development banks.
