2017 Conference Overview

The Sustaining Development Goal Six (6) is dedicated to water and sanitation which underscores the importance of freshwater in the post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda.

Freshwater from Rivers and Deltas is an essential provisioning ecosystem service. Other categories of ecosystem services include:

  • Regulating
  • Supporting and
  • Cultural services.

It is generally acknowledged that ecosystem services have declined more rapidly within the past 50 years than any other time in recorded human history. The increasing use of freshwater from rivers and deltas for human activities which further exacerbated by climate change, threatens the quantity of freshwater available for ecosystem functioning and services. Therefore, the quantity and quality of water needed to sustain the ecosystem services of rivers and deltas must be incorporated in decision-making and policy formulation for sustainable management of rivers and deltas. This is the focus of the 2ND Biennial International Conference on Rivers & Deltas in Africa organized by the Africa’s Rivers and Deltas Network (ARDNET) and the Initiative for Sustainability of Africa’s Rivers and Deltas (ISARD).
