Can hydropower be environmentally sustainable? (Nature Conservancy')

The Nature Conservancy's Jeff Opperman asks the question "Can hydropower be environmentally sustainable?" Hydropower development has potential risks and rewards, and many upcoming projects are proposed in regions with high convergence of both biodiversity and ecosystem services. Opperman encourages conservation scientists to focus on the strategic deployment of dams rather than opposing them across the board.

WWF is always looking for new ways to advance the scientific foundation that supports our global conservation work. Learn more about the Fuller Symposium and the Kathryn Fuller Science for Nature Fund: https://www.worldwildlife.org/science/...
