Protecting Our Rivers

We work to protect rivers and watersheds, and to transform the way river systems are managed and developed to better serve people and nature.

Global demands for food, energy and material goods are putting unprecedented pressure on our planet. Water is at the heart of this crisis. While traditional solutions—such as the building of dams, reservoirs and other types of infrastructure—attempt to meet these needs, they are proving too costly and unsustainable on their own.

The Nature Conservancy believes that integrating natural solutions, as well as implementing agriculture best management practices, can help us realize significant cost savings alongside the invaluable return of improved water quality and quantity. Together, we can fundamentally change how the world manages water and protect this vital resource for future generations.
