Environmental Exchanges Among Managers of Nine Lakes in Russia, Hungary and the U.S.

In 1999-2000, LakeNet (formerly Monitor International) coordinated an exchange program among managers from nine lake regions in Russia, Hungary and the United States. The "Nine Lakes" exchange program was supported with a generous grant from the Trust for Mutual Understanding. The project achieved the following objectives: (1) sharing successful models for ecosystem management in lake regions, (2) allowing for direct professional interaction among peers in environmental management, and (3) improving international communication and cooperation among exchange program participants from each of the nine lake regions.
