Appointment of Dr. Naoki Shirakawa as an ARRN Technical Committee Member (January 2009)

Through discussions in the ARRN Technical Committee, which consists of Japanese, Chinese, and Korean experts, ARRN is collecting technical information on river environments, including the Technical Guideline for River Restoration, which should be shared among Asian countries. Dr. Naoki Shirakawa has taken up a post of an ARRN Technical Committee Member as a representative of Japan, after the former Committee Member Dr. Keigo Nakamura. The following is an inauguration message from Dr. Shirakawa.
“I have become an ARRN Technical Committee Member. I think the rivers in Monsoon Asia are characterized by variation and diversity. I will make every effort to achieve beautiful river landscapes, while preserving the particular features of the Asian sub-continent and its regional characteristics.”
