In response to current challenges facing rivers and our partners working in river dependent communities, International Rivers is organizing a webinar to stay connected and engaged. We invite you to join us to hear voices from representatives working on the ground, words of inspiration, and opportunities for re-envisioning a healthier future.

ABOUT THE WEBINAR:
From Crisis to Opportunity: Covid-19 & the Future of our Rivers
The global COVID-19 crisis has shed a light on the deep seated inequities in the way our rivers and the people who depend on them are treated. Throughout critical river basins such as the Amazon and the Mekong, dam-building and destructive development has continued with little regulation or oversight. Governments from the US to Brazil are justifying development and infrastructure at any cost as part of the economic recovery, while putting communities at risk of exposure and destroying their traditional lands, waters, and livelihoods.
