International Rivers and our global networks are actively engaged in calling on decision makers to preserve our precious rivers, protect our human rights, and implement truly sustainable solutions to our water and energy needs. Add your voice!

Join the Global Call: Protect Rivers during the Covid-19 pandemic

The Covid-19 crisis has exposed the critical need to ensure freshwater and communities that depend on it are resilient, respected, and climate-prepared. It’s time to invest in a just energy transition to renewables that do not harm our precious water sources. That’s why we’re calling on governments, developers, and financiers to support a moratorium on new dams, and to prioritize energy development which respects the health of river ecosystems, community rights and energy justice. Sign on to join us in this global call.
