Social license to operate is a critical issue for renewable energy projects, particularly in the hydropower sector which can pose significant environmental and social impacts. Numerous cases in developing and developed countries demonstrated that stakeholder support for hydropower projects is often closely interwoven with the perceived balance of impacts and benefits to the host communities. Perceived absence of benefit sharing can cause objection to the development and lead to stagnation of projects and loss of social license to operate. The objective of the study is to highlight benefit sharing frameworks and document lessons from global experiences. This will help the private sector understand the different models of benefit sharing and how its implementation can support gaining social license to operate for hydropower projects.
