Guest Speaker: Dr. Masahisa Nakamura


Integrated Lake Basin Management (ILBM) is an approach for achieving sustainable management of lakes and reservoirs through gradual, continuous and holistic improvement of basin governance, including sustained efforts for integration of institutional responsibilities, policy directions, stakeholder participation, scientific and traditional knowledge, technological possibilities, and funding prospects and constraints. Dr. Nakamura will discuss the conceptual framework of ILBM, possible application schemes, and some lessons learned over the past decade, as well as the issues and challenges of facing select cases in developing and developed countries, and implications for the global water debate.
