International RiverFoundation

International RiverFoundation

TFT’s partnership with the International RiverFoundation (IRF) enhances and expands upon our work to help companies operate more responsibly. Extreme droughts in places like California are forcing us to change the way we treat and use water. Rivers are affected by our actions. This includes the actions of TFT members, so we’re excited to be able to tap into IRF’s knowledge. Although there will be collaboration around the world, the initial focus of the partnership is in Europe.

IRF’s global network stretches from Sakhalin Island in the far east of Russia, to the Siuslaw basin in Oregon, USA. Its work with companies, governments and communities to better manage rivers has had tangible and measurable improved health, ecological, economic, and social outcomes for people and the environment.

A further part of IRF’s work is to raise awareness of the environmental, economic, social and cultural values that rivers have. It identifies, rewards and champions best practice in river basin management through the Australian, New Zealand, North American, European and Thiess International Riverprizes it awards. These awards help to further encourage best practice river management practices around the world and enable knowledge-sharing between river experts and those in need.
