The technical training workshop is to focus on site evaluation for small hydro with topics including geological surveys; hydrological data collection and analysis; deciding the installed capacity of sites; economic analysis; equipment selection and electrical design.

The seminar, meanwhile, is to explore the role of international cooperation and policy in the development of small hydro.

The event follows the second United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) / IC-SHP seminar on SHP Cooperation among Developing Countries, which took place in Hangzhou and Chenzhou in April this year.

Accommodation and food expenditure for a limited number of delegates from developing countries is to be covered.
