Review for International Rivers Network dba International Rivers, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

International Rivers works through smart engagement in international processes, solid research, and respectful support for regional partners. The staff are exceedingly bright and capable, and they are deeply committed to IR's mission.

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

the increased public awareness of the damaging aspects of hydropower dams.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the wit and charm that accompanies great environmental activism.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

competent, thoughtful and energetic, with a great sense of teamwork.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make the world's rivers run clearer and deeper.

Ways to make it better...

IR didn't have to worry about the financial crisis and could get on with its substantive work.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the tremendous scale of the task compared to the resources available to accomplish it.

One thing I'd also say is that...

the climate change crisis increases the value of water running in streams and rivers at the same time it increases demand for hydropower. IR is an important advocate to see that destructive dams aren't built in the name of renewable energy.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Board Member & I attended international conferences with IR staff.
