The activity will (i) assess and map geospatially DRCs hydropower resources; (ii) rank small, medium, and large green field hydropower sites based on technical and economic considerations; (iii) provide narrowed/priority lists of sites by category, with a focus on mid-size sites (10 100 MW), and based on multi-criteria analysis jointly identified with the Government and the World Bank; (iv) provide in-country advice and training to enable stakeholders to participate in the production, maintenance and future enrichment of the database and related information created and (v) offer practical advice for implementation of priority site development. The priority lists and implementation advice will form practical guidance based on which the GoDRC will launch prefeasibility or feasibility studies of selected medium size hydropower sites funded separately under IDA resources.
