The government is pursing water resources development in Nepal from three different approaches:


  1. To develop small and decentralized Hydro power projects to meet the local demands in remote and isolated regions of the country.
  2.  To develop medium sized power projects to meet the national demand with in national grid including surplus for export and to develop local capacity.
  3. To develop large-scale multipurpose projects to meet the regional demand for food, energy and food control.






With this vision, the government had adopted the Hydro Power Development Policy of 2001 for attracting both local and foreign investment.
