Aim of the workshop
Biodiversity crisis in freshwater systems is at the worst among those in other natural systems.
For the better conservation of freshwater biodiversity, we have to urgently collect the information about the status quo of
freshwater biodiversity and ecosystem through appropriate environmental monitoring together with compiling the data
already collected by and independently stored at individual institutions, to identify the drivers which affect freshwater
biodiversity in each system, and to identify the biodiversity hotspots where conservation efforts should focus on.
In most of environmental monitoring in Asian countries, the fruits (data) derived from those monitoring are usually
written in local languages and independently stored at individual institutions. If those data become publicly accessible
and available, they would yield more contributions not only to local and domestic communities but to international ones.
In this workshop, we will discuss about data sharing among Asian countries, appropriate methods to identify the drivers
on biodiversity of a particular freshwater and the way how to identify the biodiversity hotspots for better conservation of the systems.
