5. Today is the 25th Annual International Day of Action for Rivers.

The International Day of Action for Rivers is a day dedicated to solidarity – when diverse communities around the world come together with one voice to say that rivers matter.

That communities having access to clean and flowing water matters. That everyone should have a say in decisions that affect their water and their lives. That it’s our time to stand up for these rights, now more than ever.

The 25th Anniversary of this Day for Rivers is also highlighting the importance of Rivers to Biodiversity. 

Rivers are key to restoring and maintaining the world’s biodiversity. River systems are the zone of Earth’s highest biological diversity – and also of our most intense human activity.

This year the world meets for the 15th Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).

Freshwater ecosystems are the most degraded in the world and global action is needed to turn this around.
