Lausanne, Switzerland, March 15, 2016: The World Rowing Federation (FISA) has recognised International Women's Day for 2016 with a look at the development of women's rowing throughout the world. Rowing programmes in nations including Brazil, Japan and France shared their contribution to women's rowing through photos and videos. 

Furthermore, the series of National Federations’ Conferences organised by FISA continued with the fifth edition, which took place in London, England, on March 6. More than 80 delegates representing 59 National Federations attended the conference to discuss changes to the rules and governance of rowing, which will be crucial to ensure the healthy future of the sport.

In a presentation entitled “Driving Rowing’s Future”, FISA President Jean-Christophe Rolland explained the three strategic directions that FISA has identified to ensure rowing’s future: retain a strong position in the Olympic Movement, ensure the integrity of rowing and consolidate rowing’s position as a global citizen.
