International Riversymposium

Event Date: 
October 20, 2019 to October 24, 2019

The theme for the 22nd International Riversymposium, taking place Oct 20-24, 2019 in Brisbane, Australia, is ‘Resilient Rivers’.

River resilience is the capacity of our rivers and communities to recover from disturbances, like extreme weather events, to a healthy state. The road to resilience can be a complex journey with the interdependence of environmental, social and economic outcomes.

This year’s Riversymposium will showcase innovative programs, host interactive sessions and celebrate success from around the world where people are transforming their rivers into resilient rivers.

The International Riversymposium is managed by the International RiverFoundation, which works in partnerships around the world to facilitate the sustainable management of the world’s rivers.
