Description (excerpt):

Knowledge of the impacts of hydropower on people and nature is becoming clearer. At the same time, our understanding of its role in achieving an energy sector in line with
limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels is evolving. This guide provides an initial view of actions that insurers can take to protect nature and prevent high-impact hydropower. However, the recommendations will be adjusted over time as knowledge on both these topics develops. WWF welcomes the inputs of insurers as it continues to work on this topic.

All statements and/or propositions in discussion prompts are meant exclusively to stimulate discussion and do not represent the views of, its Partners, Topic Directors or Experts, nor of any individual or organization. Comments by and opinions of Expert participants are their own.
