Sustainable and appropriate climate change adaptation strategies for hydropower developments in the Sondu Miriu River Basin
      Willis Owino Ochieng, Christopher Oludhe, Simeon Dulo
Abstract: As climate change continues impacting on various economic sectors all over the world, a lot of efforts are being put on adaptation actions. Energy is one of those sectors contributing more towards GHG emissions while renewable energy technologies have the potential of mitigating GHG emissions. Among all the renewable energy technologies being utilised, hydropower stands out to be the most stable and proven technology over time compared to geothermal, wind, solar, biogas and ocean waves among others. Despite hydropower being capable of mitigating the impacts of climate change while supporting some appropriate adaptation strategies, less emphasis has been put on how to integrate climate change adaptation into the hydropower development activities.
