Description: The project accelerated the development of small-scale hydropower (SHP) generation in Tajikistan by removing barriers through enabling legal and regulatory framework, capacity building and developing sustainable delivery models, thus substantially avoiding the use of conventional biomass and fossil fuels for power and other energy needs. It was done by introducing a regulatory framework to supply the grid with electricity generated SHP through sustainable delivery models and financing mechanisms and assist the Government in attracting funding for SHP investments.
