The project will continue its core group activities, working group activities, and local project team activities toward the completion of the project. The number of lake basin cases included in this project must be complemented by other related projects, specifically for China and Africa. Testing of the LAKES knowledge base will be pursued with the upgraded version of the search engine. Although the Basin Policy Research Forum will conclude its function in 2010, the framework of research collaboration among Shiga University, University of Shiga Prefecture, and ILEC will continue, with the possible expansion of the scope of collaboration with other research institutions in the area. The final project output will be elaborated in detail in the final Annual Review Meeting planned for late 2010, with the final report being prepared by the end of the 2010 fiscal year
