WaRC 2019

From March 6-10 in Nagarkot, Nepal, International Rivers and its partners convened the inaugural Women and Rivers Congress. The event brought together close to 100 women from more than 30 countries to celebrate the fundamental role women play in defending and stewarding freshwater resources, as well as to spur collective action to challenge the deep-ceded, gender inequities that women face in safeguarding rivers and river ecosystems.
