GIWA newsletter No 6 [2001-08-31]
A number of important events are taking place these days and in the near future. Recently I participated in the 11th Stockholm Water Symposium. We in the GIWA Core Team congratulate our colleagues in SIWI to a very successful symposium. Such events provide an excellent opportunity to meet with friends and colleagues to discuss and exchange opinions. UNEP presented on this occasion their report on the Mesopotamian wetlands. Documented with satellite remote images, it is shown a dramatic decrease in these wetlands over the past 20 years.
