Rivers connect people and places, inspiring and enabling diverse cultural beliefs, social values and economies. We desire rivers to be healthy, to support lifestyles and ultimately to be resilient. But, most of our world’s rivers are fragmented and degraded, some of which are already in a state of crisis and continuing to decline. Global change continues to put pressure on these critical resources, threatening not only water security, but also our food security, livelihoods and lifestyles.
Funds from the Save Our Rivers Ball will contribute to putting a stop to this rapid decline by implementing the Resilient Rivers Blueprint in a developing country. This innovative resilience framework will see tangible changes in the way the river basin is managed, setting the river on a journey towards resilience and ensuring the river is sustainable, vibrant and healthy for future generations
