IGB is a leading German research institute in Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries, and the institute has initiated a set of new programmatic activities focused on sustainable hydropower development across Africa. IHE Delft has partnered with IGB in a proposal to the German government to develop a new digital decision support table to allow stakeholders to jointly evaluate the consequences of major dam projects and developing alternative solutions, based on the best available scientific information. The project also involves three other high level German research institutes. IGB has selected the Zambezi River Basin as one of its test cases in order to cooperate with IHE Delft and S‐MultiStor.
