Pakistan's 147-MW Patrind hydroelectric project has earned status as a clean development mechanism (CDM) under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, has learned.

The Patrind hydel project is located on Pakistan's Kunhar River and is being developed by a consortium called Star Hydro Power Limited (SHPL), which is comprised of the Korea Water Resources Corporation (K-water) and the Daewoo Engineering & Construction Company.
