Abstract of the Presentation:

Hydropower being a major natural resource of Nepal, its development has been considered highly important for national sustainable economic development. The government has announced hydropower capacity and per capita electricity targets for time horizons of five and ten years. One aspect of this presentation will dwell on the compatibility of these targets with future economic growth scenarios of the country. Another part of the presentation is focused on the long-term implications of some current hydropower regulations from the perspective of economic efficiency and the “irreversibility” of hydropower resource development. Further, these issues and some other current policies/practices will be discussed from a long-term energy resource development perspective.
