Today, March 14th, is the International Day of Action for Rivers. It’s organised by International Rivers who say that they’re ‘at the heart of the global struggle to protect rivers and the rights of communities that depend on them.’
It’s not yet clear to me how International Rivers cooperates with the United Nations (UN). This year, 2013, is the UN’s International Year of Water Cooperation. The UN’s World Water Day is to be in a week’s time, on March 22nd. If you find the link between International Rivers and the UN, please let me know.
I’m grateful to my fellow bloggers at Sunset Daily for drawing attention to the International Day of Action for Rivers.
