It also recommends implementing basin zoning to improve project siting; improving sustainable hydropower project design; improving environmental and social impact assessment and management planning; and obtaining essential baseline data required for hydropower and basin planning. The Resources Page also contains other outputs from the different phases of SEA process, including: SEA Baseline Assessments, Sub-Basins Evaluations, Stakeholder Engagement Plan conducted at the start of the SEA, Summary Reports of Regional River Basin Consultations, Stakeholder Feedback and a National Hydropower Database of existing and proposed hydropower projects.
