Dear Dr Bulat,
We welcome and highly appreciate your Water Action Agenda commitment relating to the Aral Sea.
The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has developed an exciting new Lakes Portal as part of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. This is being done to help stakeholders around the world –
Member States, private sector, NGOs, international organizations and researchers – to advance implementation of the United Nations Environment Assembly Resolution on Sustainable Lake Management passed in 2022.
We are writing to you today to alert you to this new resource and also to ask for your suggestions and inputs to improve it. New videos or links to field research would be greatly appreciated.
We look forward to working with you to develop the portal and take forward important actions to protect our world’s lakes and other precious water bodies.
Charlie Bartlett, Freshwater Ecosystems Unit, UNEP, Nairobi, Kenya.
