Save Water,  Save Lakes

Integrated Lake Basin Management (ILBM) Learn more

  ILBM is a way of thinking that assists lake basin managers and stakeholders in achieving sustainable management of lakes and their basins. It takes into account that lakes have a great variety of resource values whose sustainable development and use require special management considerations for their lentic (static) water properties.

  Good basin management of a lake can be realized only through ILBM, or continuous improvement of lake basin governance, that integrates Institution, 
Policy, Participation, Science, Technology and Finance. ILEC promotes ILBM globally, with long-term and strong political commitment, in order to improve the state of world’s lakes.
