VOICES FOR RIVERS
Messages from 25th International Riversymposium 27th November - 1st December 2022, Vienna & Online
The 25th International Riversymposium demonstrated that throughout the world there are important positive Voices for Rivers that are not only speaking up on behalf of rivers but acting in their interests. This community of people and organisations are committed to the restoration and protection of the world’s rivers and want to see an expansion and broadening of that effort. The 2023 UN Water Conference in March provides an important opportunity to ensure that rivers are acknowledged as more than a conduit for water. They are the lifeblood of the landscape and the restoration and protection of rivers will help ensure clean, safe water for all. Healthy and resilient river ecosystems that will help buffer the consequences of climate change and ensure a more prosperous and safe human existence.
