WWF Living European Rivers Initiative

WWF Living European Rivers Initiative

Living European Rivers is a WWF-led initiative to bring life back to Europe’s waters for the benefit of people and nature. Involving other civil society organizations, governments, investors, businesses and communities, the initiative aims to protect rivers, lakes and wetlands that are still in good health and restore the ones that have been degraded. To achieve this ambitious goal by 2030, the initiative works to improve water governance, redirect financial flows towards nature-based solutions, remove dams, fight unsustainable hydropower, and raise awareness about the values of freshwater ecosystems.
