About World Lake Conference (WLC)

The history of the World Lake Conference (WLC) dates back to the Shiga Conference on Conservation and Management of World Lake Environment of 1984, known as LECS'84, which was held on the shore of Lake Biwa, Japan. The aim of the LECS' 84, which was to contribute to promoting scientific approaches in the world lake basin management, has been inherited to the World Lake Conferences held in various parts of the world.

Today, the Conference is globally recognized as a place for multi-sectoral participants (i.e., academia, government, citizens, NGOs and enterprises) to exchange their views and experiences on the sustainable management of lakes and their basins.

About 17th Conference(WLC17 2018 in Ibaraki)

The Significance of Hosting the WLC in Ibaraki

This will be the second time that Ibaraki has hosted the WLC, the first time being WLC6 23 years ago in 1995. Many citizen-run organizations participated in WLC6. With 8,203 participants (including 421 foreign participants) from 75 countries, it was a large-scale international conference.

In order to solve environmental issues involving lakes, the cooperation of not only government bodies and research institutions but also each and every prefectural resident is required. We hope that WLC17 will become a catalyst for increasing your interest in the environmental conservation of lakes.

1 Theme

Harmonious Coexistence of Humans and Lakes - Toward Sustainable Ecosystem Services

 

2 Aim (abstract)

At the 17th World Lake Conference, we will discuss how ecosystems can be maintained through greater conservation efforts – namely, the development of a society where humans and lakes can support each other and coexist in harmony. Furthermore, information sharing and opinion exchange around what measures need to be taken for humans to continue to sustainably enjoy ecosystem services will take place among people involved with lakes, including residents, those engaged in agriculture, forestry, and fisheries, businesses, researchers, and government agencies.
