In the course of studying nearly forty areas in Peru to identify possible sites for small hydro development and in order to select the best in each area for detailed design, the Authors developed and refined a methodology for this work. It gave an efficient procedure for progressive elimination of less favourable sites at each stage where experience showed this was appropriate.
