The role
of hydropower in national energy security is extremely important. Providing more than 43% of electricity, hydropower projects significantly contributed to the country's development process. Decision-making process of hydropower development is a complex process from planning, environmental impact assessment, construction, operation and closure. Each step in the process requires the involvement of many sectors and highly professional individuals. Each decision should be carefully considered to (1) ensure the efficient exploitation, (2) ensure good quality of work, (3) minimize the risk and impact on the environmental and human impacts, (4) support the livelihood recovery for affected communities.
