In its careful documentation of the impacts of large dam development International Rivers has managed to put people and the environment on equal standing. The awareness that water IS life resonates in everything that they do. Their work with communities is illustrates the best in collaborative engagement: respectful work that enhances knowledge and the capacity of affected peoples to assert basic rights to life, health, and livelihood.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the emergence of a global "rivers for life" movement.
