We are pleased to invite you to join the upcoming 6th International Symposium on Conservation and Management of Tropical Lakes, which will be jointly and virtually held with the 3rd International Conference on Tropical Limnology (TROPLIMNO III) from 25th -26th November 2021.
The organizers of this joint conference are the Platform for Aquatic Ecosystem Research (PAER), Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES), Institute of Technology of Cambodia (ITC), Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech), Research Center for Limnology – National Research and Innovation Agency of Indonesia (RCL-BRIN) and the Southeast Asian Limnological Network (SEALNet). The event is financially supported by the Science and Technology Research Partnership for Sustainable Development (SATREPS) project entitled “Establishment of Environmental Conservation Platform for Tonle Sap Lake, Cambodia”.
The main objective of this event is to bring together leading academics and scientists, policy makers, lake managers, students and other professionals in the field of tropical limnology to exchange information, share knowledge and their experience and lessons learned in integrated lake basin management. As a joint activity, the organizers aim to expand and sustain the Platform for Aquatic Ecosystem Research in the tropical lakes of Southeast Asia, which is an outcome of the SATREPS Project in Tonle Sap Lake.
The participation of multiple lake basin stakeholders from Japan and other countries will further enhance the objectives of this joint event with better knowledge and insightful understanding on the existing challenges for Asia in achieving relevant goals and targets under the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development, which was adopted by Heads of State and Government at the United Nations Summit on 25th September 2015. Likewise, everyone’s effort will be a very valuable contribution to the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030) which is a rallying call for the protection and revival of ecosystems around the world for the benefit of people and nature.
We trust that your participation will help address the global, regional and local concerns on the conservation and management of our aquatic resources. Thank you very much for your best consideration to share and shape the future with us. We are looking forward to welcome you soon.
