Fresh Waterways Cleanup

For many decades, human industrial activity has polluted nearby lakes, rivers and streams.  There are many examples on every continent.  Some of that pollution has had serious local health and economic effects; all such pollution harms the plant and animal life in those bodies of water. In recent years, initiative have been launched in various countries to restore and protect fresh waterways.  Where are those programs and projects and how can modern project management contribute to those efforts?  This section of the PM World Library is intended to provide access to a few resources for those who want to learn more or help.
