Grand Riverkeeper Labrador Inc is pleased to provide the following link to The State of the World’s Rivers website and more specifically their new interactive database. There is also a link to their video on how to use the database.
This is an excellent interactive website from international Rivers that has a lot of information about the largest river basins in the world. ~ Roberta Frampton, Riverkeeper
State of the World’s Rivers interactive mapping database
The State of the World’s Rivers interactive mapping database compares ecological health indicators within the world’s 50 major river basins.
International Rivers has launched The State of the World’s Rivers: a first-of-its-kind interactive online database that illustrates the role that dams have played in impoverishing the health of the world’s rivers. The database illustrates how decades of dam-building have put many of the world’s major river basins on life support, degrading biodiversity and water quality.
Use the State of the World’s Rivers to understand the health of rivers in your own region, and to advocate for change in how river basins are managed. By reducing fragmentation and improving water quality as a result of dam-building, we can improve the health of the world’s river ecosystems.
