By LCP Secretariat
October 13, 2016


The Cagayan de Oro River Basin Management Council, City Government of Cagayan de Oro with the League of Cities of the Philippines (LCP) and DENR-River Basin Control Office (DENR-RBCO) will host the Third International River Summit on November 24-26, 2016 at the Limketkai Luxe Hotel, Cagayan de Oro City. This year's theme is "HEALTHY WATERSHED - CLEAN RIVERS - SAFER COMMUNITIES". 

The Summit enjoins the most important river stakeholders- the global, national, and local authorities, policy experts, river managers from public and private sectors, the academe, leaders in clean water technology, advocates and students – in facing the development challenges of our world's rivers today. 

The Summit is designed to foster information and knowledge exchanges on the latest technology and approaches on river basin governance from the different participating countries. Through highly interactive plenary discussions and breakout sessions, it seeks to discuss issues and concerns on river basin governance, share innovative solutions, and synergize strategies to pursue river management issues and concerns. Thematic sessions include river ecosystem management, ecotourism, biodiversity, climate change, disaster risk reduction management, among others.

In line with this, I respectfully invite you and the entire membership of the Keidanren Committee on Nature Conservation to attend this environmental undertaking. We also request to your office to disseminate this information to other stakeholders who may be interested in river conservation. We hope that the interest of your committee is aligned with our activities in the summit.

We are very much willing to answer your queries regarding this summit. We strongly recommend that your office must pre-register online on our official website www.3rdirscdom.com due to limited seats available. The Conference Program is also updated regularly in the website.
