This book aims to inform better energy policy in hydropower dependent countries which are vulnerable to climate shocks. It focuses on the impact of increasing energy insecurity as global warming affects a fifth of the world population living in hydropower dependent countries facing drought. It uses Zambia as a case study.

The book offers supply-side and demand-side recommendations at the national, continental, and global level and contains original data collected to highlight the impact of power outages on manufacturing firms.
