The International RiverFoundation champions integrated river basin management for the restoration, protection and sustainable management of the world’s rivers. The foundation does this by facilitating education, recognition and collaboration. Water is crucial for all life—and people need healthy rivers, lakes and wetlands for sustainable development. The foundations promotes and supports effective management of these resources by facilitating knowledge sharing, education and best practice river basin management, and by recognising and rewarding those making a difference. The International RiverFoundation draws upon large networks, and seek to build new ones, to revive the world’s rivers through multi-sector partnerships around the world. The foundation is committed to supporting positive ecological, economic and social outcomes through our programs, which aim to change the lives of individuals and communities.
