Maps and Posters Overview


World Maps of Hydropower & Dams are published each year, to coincide with the World Atlas & Industry Guide. These show major schemes (> 60 m high dams) under construction, the total numbers of dams of all sizes in operation in each country, and statistics on hydropower capacity and production.

Regional Maps are published to coincide with various international events. So far, Maps have been published to show water resources development projects under construction in Africa, India, Turkey, China, Europe, Latin America, North America, Korea, Japan, China, Iran and Russia.

The posters are generally produced to commemorate major international conferences, such as ICOLD Annual Meetings or H&Ds annual Hydropower conferences, or for project inaugurations. They are co-sponsored by some of the leading companies in the profession, and give an opportunity for these companies to demonstrate their expertise in these major projects which supply water and power to the world.

10,000 copies of each poster are produced. They are distributed to: readers of Hydropower & Dams; members of the main water- and energy-related professional associations such as ICOLD and ICID; and delegates attending major international conferences and exhibitions throughout the year of publication.
