This book systematically discusses hydropower development on the Congo River. Accelerating the development of hydropower on the Congo will significantly enhance the interconnection of Africa's cross-border, trans-regional and intercontinental power grids, ensure a clean, reliable and affordable electricity supply in Africa, and promote the electrification, industrialization, and integration of Africa. The book comprehensively assesses the hydropower resources and watershed characteristics of the Congo River, focuses on cascade hydropower development planning and design in the lower reaches of the Congo River, and analyzes the hydropower consumption market, transmission scheme, construction timing, investments and economy. Project investments, financing mechanisms and safeguard measures are also addressed. The plan presented here offers a vital resource for all those interested in hydropower development in the Congo River and sustainable development in Africa
