Project objectives
Developing a concept note that describes the opportunities in Eastern Africa for more sustainable hydropower development. The longer-term objective was to develop a Hydro Stewardship programme.

Project description
The International Water Stewardship Programme (IWaSP) is managed by GIZ on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and the UK Department for International Development. IWaSP supports partnerships between public authorities, companies and civil society to address shared threats to water security. It helps companies put corporate water stewardship into practice, with practical measures to improve stakeholder’s water management through concrete investments and change processes. It has a strong focus on building the capacity of all actors to jointly develop their own solutions.

Project specifics
Assessment of the Water Stewardship business case for sustainable hydropower production in Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda.
