  • Funding a New Frontier: Gabon
    and scores of birds The rivers streams and wetlands are home to hippos rare dwarf crocodiles threatened manatees and dozens of fish species found nowhere else on Earth Add all that to the fact the Gabonese government has set forth a clear vision for the country s sustainable development with a focus on conservation and smart use of its natural resources and it s clear to see why Gabon offers an unprecedented conservation opportunity Explain this opportunity why it seems likely that TNC can make an impact A lot has been said about Gabon s unique political will The Gabonese government seems to be dedicated to green development With the support of multiple government agencies the GRP and strong collaboration with the World Wide Fund for Nature WWF and Wildlife Conservation Society WCS both of which have decades of experience working in country we are in a position to build from the start a program that balances environmental economic and social priorities I strongly believe that sustainable environmental policies need to be the bedrock of our economic growth GABON PRESIDENT ALI BONGO ONDIMBA MAY 2012 CHATHAM HOUSE IN LONDON The country s expanding energy mining forestry and transportation sectors are good news for the economy but developing the infrastructure needed to support this growth could pose a serious environmental threat So our goal is to sustain Gabon s healthy forests and waterways as well as the drinking water food timber and fuel they provide for hundreds of thousands of people in balance with its goals for economic growth Much of the Conservancy s work here is about working in close collaboration with decision makers and varied interests and sharing expertise in freshwater conservation to figure out a way to manage the river system as a whole for the benefit of

  • Water Quality
    deserving of urgent global action From a management perspective water quality is defined by its desired end use Consequently water for recreation fishing drinking and habitat for aquatic organisms requires higher levels of purity whereas for hydropower quality standards are much less important For this reason water quality takes on a broad definition as the physical chemical and biological characteristics of water necessary to sustain desired water uses UN ECE 1995 It needs to be noted that after its use water usually returns back to the hydrological system and if left untreated can severely impact the environment The major sources of water pollution are from human settlements and industrial and agricultural activities Negative factors related to these activities include unhygienic disposal and inadequate treatment of human and livestock wastes deficient management and treatment of industrial residues inappropriate agricultural practices and unsafe solid waste discharge The Great Rivers Partnership works with farmers other landowners and industry leaders to mitigate impact on water quality Intro excerpt republished with permission from UN Water s Policy Brief UN Water is the inter agency mechanism that promotes coherence in and coordination of United Nations system actions aimed at the implementation of the agenda defined by

  • Hydropower
    means to energy security Today China s Three Gorges Dam with the world s largest instantaneous generating capacity creates as much electricity as roughly 18 nuclear plants However while hydropower may be the dominant renewable energy source it often comes with significant costs Dams can drastically affect fisheries and overall water quality force the displacement of people living in river valleys and cause a number of other issues that degrade the lands and waters of a river basin The Great Rivers Partnership and its collaborators have worked with officials around the world to plan more balanced dam operations and mitigate damage caused by those currently in use The Nature Conservancy for instance has established formal relationships with Three Gorges Company and the Yangtze Water Resources Commission to find new ways to balance hydropower and conservation along China s Yangtze River Learn more about related efforts to modernize current infrastructure and support sustainable development in the future In June of 2015 Great Rivers launched the Center for Sustainable Hydropower The Beijing based center acts as a platform for exchanging knowledge building capacity and researching new solutions that balance river conservation and hydropower Alberto Galeras New Report The Power of Rivers The Nature Conservancy white paper The Power of Rivers Finding balance between energy and conservation in hydropower development addresses the global expansion of hydropower dams and the need to find development scenarios that provide energy but also work for communities and nature Influencing the Future of Hydropower The Nature Conservancy sent a delegation of staff to the 5th World Hydropower Congress in Beijing to ensure that the importance of river conservation was fully represented in the dialogue about the future of global hydropower development and management Learn more about the Congress Launch of the Center for Sustainable Hydropower in China The
