The Rivers Trust provides an important link between the established, and the new and emerging Rivers and Fisheries Trusts. It also provides a forum to develop ideas, best practice and policy guidance and test transferability. Furthermore it offers a national platform for regional Trusts to “showcase” their work, allowing them to inform and give enthusiasm to others, giving advice and encouragement and ultimately, empowerment, “thinking globally and acting locally”. Equally important is for The Rivers Trust to be outward looking in order to learn from the experience and culture of others, particularly in mainland Europe and USA and provide a gateway for future EU and international funding for the direct or indirect benefit of all rivers trusts.
