Mission Statement

 

The Ganges River (Ma Ganga) is one of the Earth’s most endangered and polluted rivers. She is also the primary water source for over 450 million people, as well as for the farms and industries along her banks and basin. A multi-disciplinary approach is urgently needed to address the devastating impacts of rapid population growth, climate change, and industrial pollution.

The River Project-Ma Ganga aims to develop holistic pilot projects in collaboration with available on-site teams to help solve some of these complex challenges. Our planning and development teams aim to address the social, cultural, and economic issues surrounding river pollution and restoration through education and collaboration with local communities.

The River Project-Ma Ganga is an open access, global river-restoration hub that serves to facilitate collaboration on all levels. Information on research, resources, ongoing projects, current developments, innovations, and Indigenous knowledge will be available to everyone. Collaborative solutions developed through pilot projects will also serve as potential models for the restoration of rivers worldwide.
