Earth’s major rivers are essential to development due to their
resources and transportation potential.
El Niño, la Niña, African and Asian monsoons, droughts and
hurricanes are all meteorological phenomena that affect the
Earth’s river basins. The Amazon, the Niger, the Mekong and the
Rhône rivers have shown many episodes of fluctuating water
levels which have become more frequent and intense in the past
few years. Such disruptions cause a loss of biodiversity in these
climates, damaging and destroying infrastructure as well as
fishing activities, agriculture and town water supplies.
The question that remains is, what effect does the climate and
more particularly, climate change, have on major river basins?
This exhibition will answer this question with the help of results
from scientific research programmes based on four major rivers:
the Amazon, the Niger, the Mekong and the Rhône.
