We work to protect rivers and rights, and promote real solutions for meeting water, energy and flood management needs around the globe.
Based on five continents, our staff work closely with a global network of river communities, dam-affected people, environmentalists, human rights advocates and experts to fight destructive river projects and promote better alternatives.
The health of Africa’s seven massive rivers is precarious in an era of climate change. As dam builders target these rivers with risky hydropower projects, we work with local partners to promote sustainable alternatives.
South Asia, Southeast Asia and China are home to some of the world’s great rivers. With staff on the ground in each region, we work closely with local communities and experts to protect these rivers and promote energy alternatives.
