The hydropower toolkit helps address major climate-related aspects in projects, such as risk identification, incorporating climate considerations in project selection, and assessing climate effects on project economics. It utilizes project data, climate-related resources, and tools from the World Bank Group and international organizations. The toolkit aims to develop a project-specific collection of considerations for further evaluation during the implementation phases of the Umbrella Toolkit. It consists of five modules: project alignment with climate policies, climate risk assessment and adaptation planning, greenhouse gas emissions assessment and climate mitigation strategies, climate considerations in project economics and finances, and key performance indicators for climate-resilient hydropower.
This toolkit contains a set of tools covering the major climate entry points (identification of risks, incorporation of climate considerations in the project’s selection, and appraisal of climate effects in the project’s economics). It uses as inputs preliminary project data, readily available climate-related resources, and tools produced by the World Bank Group and international organizations. The outcome should be a project-specific collection of considerations that will need to be further evaluated and quantified during the subsequent phases of implementation of the Umbrella Toolkit. The toolkit is divided into five modules: project alignment with climate policies, assess climate risk and plan adaptation actions), assess GHG emissions and plan climate mitigation strategies, climate considerations for assessing project’s economics and finances) guides users in checking climate strategies’ economic soundness and putting them into action, and key performance indicators for climate-resilient and sustainable hydropower).
