Newsletter #77 by the Loire-Britain Water Agency (PDF - 2.68 Mb | French-only)
In its latest newsletter, the Loire-Britain Water Agency published a small article on the preparatory seminar to the next World Water Forum (South Korea, April 2015), held in October 2014 in the city in Vientiane, Laos.
The ISW contributed to the event through a meeting of 14 young representatives, all from the countries along the Mekong River. Such representatives will be called to participate in the Forum in April. They were present in Laos during the discussions and field visits and had even the opportunity to write their own recommendations for better water resource management in the Mekong basin, subsequently synthesized in an official statement.

Its purpose is to promote the importance of the Great Lakes Basin, North America's economic, industrial and agricultural hub, and to raise awareness about the need to guarantee its environmental protection (see our previous article for more insight on the exhibition: Towards a participatory and sustainable governance of the Great Lakes, the Saint Lawrence river and its Gulf).
