The International Hydropower Association (IHA) is a non-profit membership organisation, serving as the global voice for sustainable hydropower and the organiser for the 2023 World Hydropower Congress.
As an association, we believe that all new hydropower projects should be developed and operated responsibly and sustainably.
IHA's mission is to advance sustainable hydropower by building and sharing knowledge on its role in renewable energy systems, responsible freshwater management and climate change solutions.
We seek to deliver on our mission through advocacy, research and policy initiatives and championing sustainable good practices.
IHA provides a platform for a community of leading companies and other organisations committed to deliver sustainable hydropower. This is a community built around a common set of values and principles. Read about our membership values.
