About Us

Bringing together people and solutions to protect and restore the health of the world's lakes

LakeNet is a global network of people and organizations dedicated to the conservation and sustainable development of lake ecosystems throughout the world.

The network was most active from 1998 to 2008, when it was supported by the LakeNet secretariat, a U.S.-based nonprofit organization governed by a 15-member Board of Trustees with a team of professional staff and guided by an international steering committee with regional representatives in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas.

The nonprofit organization known as "LakeNet" was dissolved at the end of 2008. Some of the information sharing and exchange activities of LakeNet were assumed by the GEF's IW:LEARN program. The World Lakes Website was transferred to the network's co-founders and continues to be maintained by them as an archive of the network's activities.

Our vision is a world of healthy lakes that support thriving human and natural communities.

The mission of the organization which created this website was to work with people and organizations to protect and restore the health of lake ecosystems throughout the world. For more than a decade, LakeNet supported information services, exchanges, assistance programs and policy work aimed at improving the stewardship of lake ecosystems by educating and inspiring people, cultivating leadership, and strengthening lake organizations.
