Rally for Rivers: A Movement to Revitalize India’s Dying Rivers

ISHA Foundation (2019)

Supported by 162 million people, RfR is the largest ecological movement in the world, offering a sustainable long-term solution to water flow depletion. Six Indian states have signed MoUs with Isha Foundation to implement river revitalization projects; 18 state governments are working to implement RfR recommendations, changing the national discourse on how India handles her natural resources. The first pilot is underway in Maharashtra, which sanctioned USD 59 million to revitalize the Waghari river in Yavatmal district and a second project will be launched in Karnataka to revitalize river Kaveri.
