The Great Rivers Partnership (GRP) is a global effort to advance sustainable management of the world's great rivers for people and nature. The GRP focuses on entire river systems and brings together the best available science and diverse stakeholders—spanning sectors from industry and navigation to academia and government—to develop and implement innovative solutions to issues threatening freshwater sustainability.
