Target demographics: people who are working to protect their rivers and communities from destructive big dams.
Geographic areas served: Africa, Asia, Latin America
Programs: International Rivers combines reforming global policies with campaigning on specific key projects. In our global policy work, we provide critical analysis for dam opponents and bring the concerns of local communities to the attention of dam funders as part of our efforts to reform their policies and practices. In our project campaigns, we support grassroots social movements and non-governmental organizations to oppose corporate and government plans for specific destructive dam projects, or to campaign for fair compensation for projects that cannot be stopped or have already been built. Specific programs include: -- Building the capacity of local groups and working to stop destructive river projects in Ethiopia, DRC, Brazil, Peru, Chile, China, Laos, Burma and India; -- Reforming policies and standards of international financial institutions such as the World Bank; -- Exposing the hydropower industry's efforts to use climate change to promote the false solution of big-dam hydropower;
