Rivers without Boundaries was founded as a cooperation agreement between NGOs and experts from Mongolia, China, Russia and US to work jointly to protect transboundary rivers and solve transboundary problems related to river ecosystems in North Asia. Initial decision on RwB was made at annual conference of the Sosnovka Coalition of environmental nonprofit organizations and organizations of indigenous people of Siberia and the Russian Far East. Initial reason was simple – we lacked capacity to cooperate internationally on transboundary rivers issues.

The Coalition Membership includes:

-interested organizations working on river and lake conservation in northern Eurasia

-interested international conservation organizations;

-expert committee comprised of independent specialists
