Rivers at risk
The Ayeyarwady River is nutrients for our fertile farms, fish for every meal, transport for our many boats and protection from rising sea levels.
But our actions are having major impacts, and the consequences could be catastrophic.
"Unsustainable fishing will wipe out a significant food source, as well as the remaining few river dolphins."
"The Ayeyarwady's fragile sediment dynamics provide food and safety for the entire country."
"We need to be focussing on more sustainable alternatives to hydropower dams."
It's not too late to protect the Ayeyarwady. Together we can find a way to balance development and safeguard the future of this vital lifeline.
