Project: Research

Project Details

Description

The River Commons research and action program is about learning from and with river co-governance initiatives and riverine communities, which are often sidelined in conventional water management approaches. Top-down and more technocratic approaches around the world have tended to overlook or consciously disregard the critical role of local actors and organisations. As a result, their interventions often affect watersheds, river flows, water quality and river communities negatively. In this context, River Commons aims to redirect the focus: understanding and supporting innovative river co-governance initiatives.
