Micro Hydropower for the rural population in Cameroon

ADEID (Action pour un Développement équitable, Intégré et Durable) has gained successful and valuable experiences in local construction, installation and operation of micro hydropower plants in rural areas of Cameroon and other African countries. The project included inter alia the construction of an improved micro hydropower plant and an expert seminar with the financial sector to demonstrate the credit worthiness and international experts to exchange experiences. One objective and result of the project was the dissemination of the experiences on micro hydropower by issuing a handbook that presents the lessons learned in 15 years of participatory development of hydro power plants.
