Editorial Content

One of the main editorial features of the World Atlas is the comprehensive world survey of hydropower and water resources development.

This is researched and updated each year, and today represents input from 180 countries (all those with active hydropower development programmes underway.

The individual country reports (arranged by continent) are based on the responses to detailed questionnaires which are sent each year to high level contacts at national and regional power and water authorities worldwide, and some national committees of professional associations.

On occasions when updates cannot be obtained for particular countries, efforts are made through other known contacts or H&D’s own information base to update key points.

World overview
Based on our country reports, an annual synthesis of world developments is prepared.
Editorial Comments, reflecting the state-of-the-art of water resources development, dam and hydro engineering, and irrigation and drainage, are contributed each year by the Presidents of international professional associations such as ICOLD, ICID, IWRA and others.

Tables giving statistics on hydro potential, dams under construction, RCC dams, concrete faced rockfill dams and dams with asphaltic facings or cores are also included in the Atlas. These clearly show trends in the role played by hydropower in each country’s energy mix, and priorities and achievements in dam construction worldwide.
