GLIN==> 9th Int'l Conference on the Conservation and Management of Lakes



Posted on behalf of Dr. Frank D'Itri <ditri@msu.edu>

---
The World Lake Conference will be held in Shiga, Japan, November 8-18, 2001.
The conference theme is "Partnerships for Sustainable Life in Lake
Environments: Making Global Freshwater Mandates Work." See
http://www.pref.shiga.jp/lake2001/

The International Conference on the Conservation and Management of Lakes
dates back to 1984 when the Shiga Prefectural Government held the "World
Lake Conference" for the first time to address the environmental problems of
lakes that had been stricken by rapid population and industrial growth.

Conservation of environmentally healthy lakes for future generations is the
key issue. As such, the World Lake Conference has been held regularly in
succeeding countries under the revised title of the "International
Conference on the Conservation and Management of Lakes". In the course of
those conferences, ILEC (International Lake Environment Committee) was
established in 1986 with the cooperation of UNEP (United Nations Environment
Program) and the Shiga Prefectural Government. Since then ILEC has been
continuously pressing to hold a series of conferences virtually every other
year in seven countries.

In November of 2001, the conference will return to its birthplace, Shiga.
