From the Amazon to the Mekong, from the great rivers of China to Africa’s Congo River, a wave of big dams threatens some of our last iconic rivers. Because nothing is quite so destructive to a river as a big dam, International Rivers focuses on stopping the worst dam projects in the Global South. We target projects that pose particularly great threats to critical river ecosystems and local communities, and for which there are clearly better alternatives.
