The International RiverFoundation champions integrated river basin management for the restoration, protection and sustainable management of the world’s rivers.



We support future leaders and early-career professionals to develop their knowledge, skills, and experiences in sustainably managing the world’s rivers.



We recognise and reward individuals and organisations who have achieved incredible outcomes for rivers, basins and communities, and help them share their knowledge with those who could benefit from it.



We advance integrated river basin management by facilitating cross-sector collaboration through events, partnerships and on-ground projects.

International Riversymposium

The International Riversymposium brings together river managers, policy developers, scientists, consultants, students, NGOs, indigenous and community organisations and business and industry representatives from around the world to share their knowledge, learn from others and collaborate on innovative ideas to improve the sustainable management of river basins.
