LBMI Experience & Lessons Learned Briefs

As part of the GEF project, a series of case studies known as "experience briefs" were commissioned to document lessons learned in lake basin management. Teams from 28 lake regions in both developing and developed countries were selected to prepare the briefs and to participate in experience sharing workshops.

Some of the lakes included in the project are current or past recipients of grants through the Global Environment Facility, a multi-lateral financing mechanism. The other "non-GEF" lakes included in the project were selected because of investments made and experience gained in implementing lake management programs through bi-lateral and national-level investments.
