To contribute to national economic progress by advancing micro hydro industry in Nepal and to assist its members in fulfilling the task, NMHDA pays due attention to followings.

  • A lobby group to influence micro/mini/small hydropower policy.
  • To provide technical support to its members in order to enhance technological knowhow and skill.
