International Rivers


International Rivers works to protect rivers and rights, and promote real solutions for meeting water, energy and flood management needs around the globe. The IR focus is on raising awareness that large dams and diversions are the primary culprit for the massive changes to ecosystems and communities dependent on our rivers. NWNL has shared with IR experiences and images from the Lower Omo River Basin, where the livelihoods of indigenous residents are threatened by the construction of 5 massive hydropower dams upstream.
