Since the emergence of freshwater ecology and conservation as a discipline in the twentieth century, the advances in science, policy, and practice have been considerable, particularly in the areas of applied ecology and the social sciences. Freshwater systems continue to face considerable challenges to their sustainability in the Anthropocene. Most of these challenges, however, are driven by their broader and dynamically changing social-ecological context. Approaches are needed that recognise that people are at the centre of successful freshwater conservation and management, and which are strategically targeted, policy relevant, innovative, and inclusive of social, political, and economic considerations. As this chapter describes, a rich and continually evolving suite of approaches to freshwater conservation already exists worldwide on which to draw, as does the knowledge and experience to support their effective application.
