access to this river, but such freedom could destroy the resource, and conservation methods are necessary to
protect the river for future use.
Conflicts become worse when a natural resource crosses political boundaries. For instance, the
headwaters, or source, of a major river may be located in a different country than the country through which
the river flows. There is no guarantee that the river source will be protected to accommodate resource needs
downstream. In addition, the way in which one natural resource is managed has a direct effect upon other
natural resources. Cutting down a forest near a river, for instance, increases erosion, the wearing away of
topsoil, and can lead to flooding. Eroded soil and silt cloud the river and adversely affect many organisms
such as fish and important aquatic plants that require clean, clear freshwater for survival.
