River Management Symposium
Every other year, the River Management Society hosts an international training on topics related to river management and planning. They provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and the vetting of policies and strategies concerning river management, and encourage the formation of networks and partnerships among a broad range of river professionals. Proceedings and other RMS publications are available to members and other participants.
