    an ongoing rapid expansion of infrastructure For example nearly 950 new dams are planned or under construction in South America in China there are nearly 50 in the Yangtze River Basin alone The Great Rivers Partnership seeks to improve the efficiency of dams and integrate management of their flows with downstream natural features such as floodplains to create or improve benefits to people and wildlife Among many efforts in this area the GRP signed a memorandum of understanding with the U S Army Corps of Engineers to advance economically and ecologically sustainable management practices in the Mississippi River Basin A collaborative vision and integrated river basin management strategy guide this work and involve technical exchanges that encourage mutual sharing of best practices globally Likewise The Nature Conservancy collaborates with the U S Army Corps of Engineers and other partners on the Sustainable Rivers Project a national initiative that is modifying dam operations to enhance economic benefits and downstream habitat for fish and wildlife Improving Return on Investment in Water Infrastructure 283KB pdf Download this paper for information on how to increase social economic and environmental benefits through reservoir and floodplain management Modernizing Dam Operations 805KB pdf Learn how work on

    world s poorest people In an ever changing market driven world large river systems play a critical role They provide trade transportation and business routes They support agricultural production and commercial and recreational fisheries They also generate power and in a growing number of regions drive local and international tourism Colombia s Magdalena River Basin for example produces 85 percent of the country s gross domestic product With river systems serving at such a powerful capacity innovation is key The opportunities these systems offer can only be realized if we employ sustainable development practices to safeguard their long term health The Great Rivers Partnership understands this cannot happen without everyone at the table With that in mind the GRP participates in initiatives such as the Field to Market Alliance a coalition of corporations and nonprofits working to improve productivity and environmental quality in the agriculture supply chain Likewise through America s Watershed Initiative the GRP helps lead the way to balanced management solutions for the Mississippi River by integrating issues partners and ideas at the full watershed scale The Water Producer Program in Brazil also illustrates how the GRP has helped fuel innovative finance solutions that improve water quality Transportation

  • Transportation
    of mobility and access to basic services The sector encompasses vessels from simple non motorized boats to highly automated pushers operating on waterways ranging from small tributaries to major rivers A shift from road transport to inland water transport for both cargo and passengers usually contributes to more efficient use of resources and energy For example the government of Thailand has pursued the expansion of commuter services on waterways around Bangkok to relieve extreme road traffic congestion in the city Likewise in the United States the Mississippi River has provided a crucial low carbon mode of transport for commodities via barge transportation Certain environmental problems and risks are associated with water transport however Most notable are the impacts of canalization and dredging which are done to make water routes more navigable The activities respectively modify the course or flow of a river and reactivate polluted sediments into surface waters The Great Rivers Partnership has addressed these issues in the U S by collaborating with the transportation industry in the Mississippi River Basin Joint advocacy efforts have led to support of navigation improvement and ecosystem restoration funding for the basin through the Water Resources Development Act As the GRP expands to

    of enticing people to forego specific activities for the betterment of nature Expecting local governments to step in to cover these costs is not always realistic However innovative financial and policy solutions can result in a solid revenue stream to support ongoing conservation efforts These may be purely public schemes or privately financed or some combination of the two As the world struggles to improve conditions for those who do not have access to water or enough energy for homes and businesses more water infrastructure in the form of dams and diversions is inevitable This will place added pressure on the waters that flow through rivers and lakes Luckily financial solutions can be embedded in this development allowing us to be smarter about taking care of these resources for people and nature The Great Rivers Partnership has helped implement such solutions by supporting the launch of efforts including the Water Producer Program which financially compensates rural landowners for engaging in conservation practices upstream that help safeguard clean water for users downstream Intro adapted with permission from The Nature Conservancy s Conservation Gateway Hydropower Sustainability Fund 1 9MB pdf Download this proposal for a finanancial mechanism on the Yangtze that focuses
