Information Exchange with the ECRR President (March 16, 2009, Istanbul, TURKY)


On Monday, March 16, 2009, we exchanged information and opinions about future collaboration with ECRR and the activities of ARRN with Mr. Bart Fokkens, President of ECRR, which is a model organization of ARRN.
This conference was held at the site of the Fifth World Water Forum (Turkey), when the ECRR President and ARRN/JRRN Secretariat Director participated in the forum. The discussion was constructive. We decided to start with possible efforts in cooperation between Europe and Asia, including both parties’ participation in workshops and contribution to database construction.

Venue Opening

From March 16 to March 22, the Fifth World Water Forum was held in Istanbul, Turkey under the theme of “Bridging Divides for Water.” More than 30,000 people from over 150 countries concerned about water gathered together. They discussed various solutions for water problems at more than 100 sessions.
Partly in view of the fact that ARRN was established based on the recommendation of a special session co-hosted by Japan, China, and Korea in the last Fourth World Water Forum (March 2006, Mexico), two members of the ARRN Secretariat took part in the forum to do PR for ARRN for other participants, give opinions, and promote the “Reference Guideline for River Restoration” published by ARRN.
