International Training Workshop at Sub-base in Changsha
2012-9-17 10:23:04

From 3rd to 23rd of September, the Sub-Base in Changsha, Hunan Province, is holding an ‘International Training Workshop on Hydroelectric Technology for Small and Medium Hydropower”. The training is supported by the Ministry of Science and Technology of P.R. China as well as the Hunan Provincial Department of Science and Technology. Twenty training participants from Burundi, D.R. Congo, Egypt, India, Iran, Laos, Nepal, Nigeria, Nepal, Pakistan, Peru , South Africa, Sudan, Uganda, Vietnam and Zimbabwe have arrived to share their experiences on small hydropower and sustainable development, as well as seek opportunities and find solutions to promote small hydropower development in their own countries.

Background: In June 2010, the ICSHP nominated the Changsha Base - HNAC Technology Co., Ltd. as UNIDO’s small and medium hydropower control equipment R&D and manufacturing demonstration base.

At the opening ceremony, Mr. Funso Jacob Makanjuola, project manager from the Regional Centre for Small Hydropower in Abuja, Nigeria, represented the training attendants and welcomed the opportunity given for information exchange. He said that “there are serious concerns of energy challenges already encumbering the African, Latin American and Asian rural population development process, including the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). This is in spite of the rural endowment of both Renewable and Non-Renewable Energy Sources that are largely underutilized and at times inefficiently in its use”. Ms. Lara Esser, Senior Programme Officer at IC-SHP presented some of her preliminary World Small Hydropower Report findings to the training participants, where she also met Mr. Makanjuola.
