LBMI Regional Experience Sharing and Review Workshop for Europe, Central Asia & the Americas

"Sharing Experience and Lessons Learned in Lake Basin Management"

Date: 18-21 June 2003
Location: Saint Michael’s College and the Leahy Center for Lake Champlain Burlington, Vermont, USA

This invitation only, four-day workshop was the first of three regional workshops conducted by the International Lake Environment Committee (ILEC) and LakeNet, under a multilateral “Lake Basin Management Initiative” Project which is financed by the Global Environment Facility and implemented by the World Bank. The other two Regional Workshops will be held in Africa and in Asia, later in 2003.

In cooperation with the Lake Basin Management Initiative’s Project Management Team, Project Secretariat and local partners, LakeNet was responsible for organizing and facilitating this regional experience sharing and review workshop for Europe, Central Asia & the Americas. The workshop was held in connection with the 10th World Lakes Conference and the grand opening of ECHO at the Leahy Center for Lake Champlain.

Selected representatives from the following lake regions were invited to present a case study about their experience and early lessons in lake basin management: Aral Sea, Baikal, Ohrid, Peipsi, Constance/Bodensee, Issyk-kul, Sevan, Titicaca, Nicaragua, Champlain, Great Lakes and Tucurui Reservoir.
