22nd International Riversymposium

2019 LOCATION

Brisbane, Australia

2019 DATES

20-24 October

The theme for the 22nd International Riversymposium is ‘Resilient Rivers’.

River resilience is the capacity of our rivers and communities to recover from disturbances, like extreme weather events, to a healthy state. The road to resilience can be a complex journey with the interdependence of environmental, social and economic outcomes.

This year’s Riversymposium will showcase innovative programs, host interactive sessions and celebrate success from around the world that are transforming their rivers into resilient rivers.
