Freshwater Working Group

In 2003 at SCB's annual meeting in Duluth, Minnesota, the Freshwater Working Group was formed to help promote freshwater conservation concerns within the Society and the discipline at large.

The working group is concerned with methods to identify threatened freshwater ecosystems, identifying challenges in free-flowing rivers, bringing the fields of environmental flows and conservation planning together, quantifying the biggest pressures and key processes in risk to freshwater ecosystems and identifying the mechanisms to deal with these from a global perspective, and linking freshwater biodiversity with livelihoods and human health.
