To be successful in riverine community protection work, you need to have access to the relevant literature. Contrary to what one may expect initially, there is actually a lot of literature in this area: ranging from works by legal scholars to works by ecology scholars, soil chemistry scholars, water engineering scholars and so on. And for you to be successful in riverine community protection work (which tends to take the form of activism work), you need to have sound knowledge – this being the knowledge you’d be basing your arguments on. That sound knowledge is to be found in the literature we are making reference to. The question that arises, then, is at to how you can access the said literature: that is, the relevant literature for riverine community protection activism.
There is, firstly, the option of using the internet to access the riverine community protection literature. Through the use of the Internet, you can access anything from newspaper articles touching on riparian community protection to full-length books on the subject.
Then there is the option of visiting libraries, to access the riverine community protection literature. There are public libraries you can use for this purpose, and if you don’t find what you need there, there is always the option of using private libraries (to the extent that you can access them).
Further still, there is the option of buying the books that constitute riverine community protection literature. Even if you can’t find such books in your local bookshop, you can still order online. Then having made the order and paid up, you can have a company such as UPS deliver the book or books to you – in more or less the same manner that mail is delivered at your doorstep. UPS, the company whose HR/employees website is www.upsers.com has over time come to be regarded as a highly efficient company at these sorts of deliveries: even for international clients. Suppose you wish to know how far the shipment of the riverine community protection literature you ordered is. In that case, you’d just need to have the UPS tracking number which you can then enter into the UPS website for an update. The whole system is very efficient, and you can use it to order riverine community protection literature from abroad. This is an attractive proposition, especially if you are unable to access such literature online for one reason or another.
