December 22, 2021

How can a community participate in river management? What are the resources needed for successful river conservation? In this solution snapshot, we explore the various community-based river management practices that was carried out under UNDP’s Mainstreaming of Biodiversity Conservation into River Management project. The project  emphasizes on community empowerment and the use of traditional knowledge for a holistic approach to riverine biodiversity management. 

Sparked by the accelerated rate of innovation in times of COVID-19, the Solutions Snapshot series is a quick resource to learn about emerging solutions in addressing grassroots challenges. These snapshots garner the attention of policymakers, business leaders, and civil society to initiate change - and provide the support needed.
