Billions of dollars are being invested in building dams throughout the Amazon that will devastate the environment and displace local communities and cause massive emission of green house gases as the vegetation decomposes. International Rivers is at the forefront of ensuring that local communities and the environment is put before economic greed and is the leading expert on these issues.

This is great worlwide organization covering issues such as the effects of dams on rivers which many other groups are not doing. They work around the world in Developing nations as well as industrial nations. They have very good information and wage advocacy campaigns to save these important resources.

The ideal non-profit aims to empower the underdog- the marginalized, those who have no voice- to fight for their own interests. I have come across few organizations who do this better than IR. Those most affected by dams are those who still depend on rivers for their livelihood, and the insensitive corporate machine gives less credence to their opinions and needs because of their lifestyle. IR ensures that these people are not quietly displaced- the organization gives them a voice and ensures that governments and companies are aware of the global, ardent moral support that they have. I will continue to support IR in any way that I can, and hope that many others follow.

IRN is a cutting edge non-profit. I think they do a really good job as a relativly small organization making a big impact. I commend their efforts to translate documents and resources into other languages, especially non-Western languages. They continue to support grassroots efforts to improve water management around the world without reinforcing historical relationships of imperialism.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

China. The Chinese language resources produced by IRN have been used by grassroots hydropower opposition.
