    Goals / Remit

    - RiverWatch is a society for the protection of rivers. Our ambition is to preserve the last unimpaired rivers as well as restoring those already canalized or dammed.
    - RiverWatch engages globally against projects that destroy rivers, particularly dam projects.
    - RiverWatch is a campaigning organisation; that is, we act in opposition to certain projects and promote public awareness.
    - We consider ourselves a platform for all those who care about rivers.
    - RiverWatch draws attention to the value of rivers; their beauty and their importance to flora and fauna, as well as to humans. We engage globally against destructive projects, particularly dams, and promote public awareness through campaigning.
