Protecting rivers and defending the rights of the communities that depend on them
Global Solidarity Hunger Strike to Free Bach
Our Rivers, Our Water Future
Since 1985, International Rivers has been at the heart of the global movement to ensure river-dependent communities’ voices are heard and their rights are respected.
Rivers are the arteries of the earth, supporting the highest rate of biodiversity compared to any other ecosystem and providing for the livelihoods of millions of local, indigenous and traditional peoples. Rivers are also under extreme threat, with less than 10% of the world’s river basins protected.
International Rivers strengthens movements of communities and civil society at the forefront of defending rivers by:
- Undertaking investigative research to generate robust data and evidence to inform policies and campaigns.
- Remaining independent and fearless in campaigning to expose and resist destructive projects.
- Developing a vision that protects rivers and the communities that depend upon them.
