    "A cascade of hydropower development" suggests a series of waterfalls (cascades). It is a bit metaphorical and does suggest "a large number of...."

    A cascade is a sequence where the output of one element feeds into the next element.

    Apparently there is going to be a series of dams along the river. This is the one furthest upstream. Its outflow will go into the next dam and so on down to the sea. Each dam will have the capacity to generate electricity.
