The Great Rivers Partnership (GRP) is a global community with a common vision: secure the health of the world's Great Rivers for the benefit of people and nature.
Great Rivers are the large, iconic rivers that sustain entire nations with food, water, energy and more. Key to building stable and equitable economies, Great Rivers also feed our growing populations and improve the health and well-being of people, especially the poor.
To help strike a balance and safeguard these important waterways for future generations, the GRP brings together diverse partners and the best science to address the following key areas:
- Flood Risk Management
- Sustainable Hydropower
- Agriculture and Water
Efforts are implemented across four continents, focusing on eight GRP basins:
- North America - Mississippi and Colorado river basins
- South America - Magdalena and Tapajós river basins
- Asia - Yangtze and Mekong river basins
- Africa - Niger and Ogooué river basins
Learn more about these basins and the GRP approach at greatriverspartnership.org.
