Water is crucial for all life—and we need healthy rivers, lakes and wetlands for sustainable development. We promote and support effective management of these resources by facilitating knowledge sharing, education and best practice river basin management, and by recognising and rewarding those making a difference.
We champion an integrated approach to river basin management, and work to revive the world’s rivers through multi-sector partnerships around the world. We are committed to achieving positive ecological, economic and social outcomes through our programs, which have a life-changing impact on individuals and communities around the world.
Hosted by the International RiverFoundation, the International Riversymposium was first held in Brisbane in 1998 and provides a platform for river managers, policy developers, scientists, consultants, NGOs and community organisations to share knowledge and innovative ideas on all aspects of river and water management.
By facilitating partnerships between key stakeholders, the International Riversymposium celebrates the environmental, economic and social value of rivers across the globe. The symposium provides an international forum for examining best practice in river and watershed management.
Over the years, the International Riversymposium has hosted thousands of delegates from all over the world. Whether through the RiverExpo, plenary sessions, or the Riverprize Gala Dinner and social program, Riversymposium provides the opportunity to network with river and water management experts on a global scale.
