Masyarakat dibantu oleh Perkumpulan Walestra yang mendapat dana hibah dari Proyek Sumatran Tiger akan melakukan pemulihan ekosistem kawasan TNKS di kawasan tangkapan air pembangunan PLTMH yang berada di zona rehabilitasi TNKS.

Proyek Sumatran Tiger berkomitmen melaksanakan konservasi keanekaragaman hayati dan rehabilitasi habitat satwa penting dan terancam punah. Salah satu areal implementasi kegiatan tersebut adalah di Taman Nasional Kerinci Seblat yang saat ini sedang menghadapi ancaman degradasi hutan dan lahan.

Kegiatan restorasi ekosistem juga mendukung kegiatan Direktorat Jenderal Energi Baru Terbarukan dan Konservasi Energi bekerja sama dengan United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) dalam aksi mitigasi perubahan iklim di sektor pembangkit energi dan penghematan energi melalui Proyek Market Transformation through Design and Implementation of Appropriate Mitigation Actions in the Energy Sector (MTRE3).

Salah satu kegiatan MTRE3 adalah melakukan pembangunan Pembangkit Listrik Tenaga Micro Hydro di Desa Renah kasah, yang juga didukung oleh kerja sama antara UNDP dengan Badan Amil Zakat Nasional (BAZNAS) dan kerja sama UNDP dengan Bank Jambi untuk mencapai Target Pembangunan Berkelanjutan (SDG) dalam penyediaan listrik bagi masyarakat miskin yang tinggal di desa yang belum tersambung dengan jaringan listrik PLN.
