Unlocking Waterways: Improving River Connectivity and Restoring Ecosystems

8 February | 7:00pm AEDT  | Online 

As the Asia-Pacific region grapples with harmonizing growth and sustainability, our waterways demand immediate attention. Sustainable fisheries, the lifeblood of dietary needs in the region, hinge on the integrity and connectivity of our rivers. Infrastructure, though instrumental for development, has inadvertently compromised the health of vital river basins, particularly the Mekong River Basin. In this webinar, we venture into the heart of these challenges, exploring innovative solutions and emphasizing the need to restore and reconnect. 

Speakers in this session include:  

  • Caroline Turner, UN Food and Agriculture Organization 
  • Lee Baumgartner, Charles Sturt University 
  • John Conallin, Charles Sturt University 
  • Ana Horta, Charles Sturt University  
  • AWP (Speaker TBC)
