Abstract

The purpose of this advice is to provide updated insights to enable discussion on the options and instruments available for a donor, such as the Directorate-General International Cooperation of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DGIS) to contribute to decision-making on large dams that will be most beneficial for sustainable development. To that end, the Dutch Sustainability Unit has carried out a study of recent publications, and undertaken expert consultations, on the sustainability including the Sustainable Development Goals, energy transition, cost-effectiveness and future perspectives of large dams. Experts were selected from different backgrounds (financial institutions, research institutes, consultants involved in decision-making on dams) to acquire an updated view of current thinking about large dams and how these score against alternative options. Based on the results of that study, the present advice has been developed. It includes some policy suggestions that DGIS could further develop.
