Also, the seminar invited Mr. Muhammad Ashraf Palari, the Deputy Director of Pakistan Standards & Quality Control Authority, Mr. Roshan Pandey, the Chief of Small Hydropower Program at Nepal Academy of Science and Technology, and Mr. Adan Mangal, an Energy Efficiency Expert of Afghan National Standard Authority, to give presentations respectively. Finally, Mr. Dong Dafu, the Deputy Director of HRC, drew a brief conclusion at the closing ceremony.

Through the exchange and discussion upon the standards of small hydropower technology, this seminar could further promote multilateral cooperation in terms of small hydropower technology, projects development, plant operation & maintenance among developing countries. Moreover, small hydropower, being a clean renewable energy, has its advantages to be fully exploited in the fields of energy conservation and emission reduction, which can have huge contribution to curbing the global climate change.
