The International Symposium for Integrated Lake Basin Management (ILBM) in Africa

In affiliation with the 5th Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD V), ILEC organized “The International Symposium for Integrated Lake Basin Management (ILBM) in Africa: Accelerating the TICAD Process through Sound Management of Lakes and Reservoirs” in Yokohama, Japan, on June 1.
At this symposium funded by Japan Fund for Global Environment, Dr. Madhav Chitale from India, Stockholm Water Prize Laureate for 1993, gave a keynote speech on how sustainable management of lakes and reservoirs could be pursued, reporting Indian cases, which precede African ones. The keynote speech was followed by a panel discussion, featuring representatives from Lake Victoria’s Nyanza Gulf (Kenya), Lake Nakuru (Kenya), and Lake Chivero (Zimbabwe). With a UNEP official participating in the discussion, the panelists actively exchanged their insights in regard to challenges each lake was facing and what should be done to enhance sustainable management of lakes and reservoirs.
