Less than 1% of the planet surface comprises freshwater, yet it is this freshwater – our rivers, lakes and wetlands – that sustains us. Rivers underpin our economies, providing water for agricultural lands, fisheries, tourism and cities to support growing populations and diverse cultures. Today, more than ever, we need to embrace innovative practices to manage our rivers and river basins. The 21st International Riversymposium will facilitate critical thinking, focus on solutions and inspire delegates to move beyond ‘business as usual’ approaches and outcomes. This symposium will have an emphasis on training and professional development, ensure delegates have the skills and knowledge to implement and deliver what they learn.
