Having completed eight expeditions for No Water No Life as its founder and director, I have much to report and to share. I hope many of you can attend this evening.
For three years, from glaciers to arid deserts, NWNL's team has researched and documented the effects of climate change, infrastructure, development, resource extraction, pollution and habitat degradation. Our expeditions have covered North America's Columbia, Mississippi and Raritan River Basins and northeastern Africa's Blue Nile, Omo and Mara River Basins.
These expeditions have yielded provocative imagery and commentary from over 150 stakeholders, all underlining the importance of developing sustainable freshwater management. Our approach has been enthusiastically endorsed by all we meet, providing the synergy with which we have been able to connect stewardship partners within watersheds from river to river.
