Wat-er We Doing To Protect Our Rivers?

Dr K. Kalithasan, Manager, RIVER Care Programme; Global Environment Centre (GEC)

Wat-er We Doing To Protect Our Rivers?

Rivers are the planet’s arteries of life, and are intrinsically linked to human survival and well-being. It was International Day of Action for Rivers on the 14th of March - a day dedicated to solidarity, when diverse communities around the world come together with one voice to say that rivers matter. In conjunction with this global celebration, we speak to Dr K. Kalithasan, the Manager of the RIVER Care Programme at the Global Environment Centre (GEC), for a reminder on why we must protect the health of our rivers, and why it's crucial to our survival.
