Strategic Environmental and Social Assessment of Hydropower Plants


Our Role

SMEC was engaged to deliver the Strategic Environmental and Social Assessment (SESA) relating to the development of hydropower plants in Nigeria.

Project Overview

Completed in March 2017, this project was a federal government initiative with the aim of improving the efficiency, reliability and sustainability of the power industry in Nigeria.

The scope of work included the preparation of a Strategic Environmental and Social Assessment (SESA) relating to the development of gas-fired, solar and mini-hydropower generation plants by Independent Power Producers (IPPs). This included:

  • Identification of current impacts and issues
  • Overview of regulatory and institutional frameworks
  • Assessment of current capacity
  • Final consultations, recommendations, review and approval.

The assessment aims to enhance the benefits of the proposed power generating plants while ensuring negative impacts are mitigated.
