Advanced scoping for technical capacity building on small hydropower in East Africa

RECP has recently concluded a project aimed at supporting the East African Community (EAC) in carrying out a detailed gap analysis and assessment on technical capacity development measures for small hydropower in the region.

The detailed recommendations contained in the action plan are designed to close the gaps identified during the scoping mission in all EAC Partner States.
