19th international River Symposium

12-14 september 2016, New Delhi (India)

19th international River Symposium
 
Great Rivers of the World : Management for Shared Benefits
 
The 19th International Riversymposium will address some of the world’s most pressing river basin management challenges. How can we best balance economic development with environmental and livelihood values in our own unique parts of the world ?
 
 
The Greater Himalaya is one of the world’s most populous regions, where climate change poses an additional risk to water security and river health. Ten major rivers drain the Greater Himalaya, providing water, food, energy and environmental services to around 1.5 billion people across central, south, southeast and east Asia ; supporting over one fifth of the global population on less than 2 percent of the global land mass.
 
 
This special part of the planet will play host to the 19th International Riversymposium in New Delhi, India. Hot topics will be addressed throughout the program incorporating perspectives from different sectors and parts of the world, with a specific sub-theme and post-conference tours dedicated to exploring the unique challenges of the Himalayas.
