ARRN News mail, Issue 7

Dear Sir or Madam,

We, Asian River Restoration Network: ARRN, send you the "ARRN newsmail Issue7".

ARRN's "8th International Forum on Waterfront and Watershed Restoration" will
be held on 11 November 2011 in Tokyo-JAPAN. The title of the forum is
"Urban River Restoration at the confluence of Disaster Mitigation and
Environment Preservation". Please visit to the ARRN website in detail.


One of the ARRN's objectives is to provide various opportunities and venues for
river restoration related organizations and individuals to share and exchange
knowledge and experiences related to the restoration of rivers and watersheds.
ARRN forum aims to enrich the participants's knowledge and technology through
mutual and multilateral cooperation, and to contribute to creation of rich
river environment in Asia. Since its inception in 2005, ARRN forum has been
held seven times in ARRN member countries and this 8th forum will be held in
Tokyo JAPAN after an interval of four years.
You can see past records through the following URL.


We will prepare a report which includes detailed record of all lectures and
discussion of the 8th forum around December as a reference material of river
restoration in Asia, and we open it to the public through the ARRN website.

Sincerely yours,

Secretariat of ARRN/JRRN
