World Commission On Dams



The World Commission on Dams (WCD) established the most comprehensive guidelines for dam building. The WCD describes an innovative framework for planning water and energy projects that is intended to protect dam-affected people and the environment, and ensure that the benefits from dams are more equitably distributed.

The purpose of WCD validation is to ascertain the compliance of the project according to the seven strategic priorities of the WCD. KBS offers this independent third party assessment for the project activities in accordance with EU directives (DIRECTIVE 2004/101/EC).
