The Kolleru Lake, in Andhra Pradesh, India, is a unique fresh water shallow lake, with its own very particular physical and socio-economic characteristics. It provides a classic example of man's attempts to exploit natural resources resulting in the endangering of the local ecosystem. Only by firm and imaginative resource management will the decline be arrested. The seminar, 'The Management and Development of the Kolleru Lake' was organised with UNESCO's support in cooperation with the National Institute of Rural Development at Hyderabad, part of the Indian Ministry of Agriculture. The aim of the seminar was to provide State administrative officers and researchers with a structure for interdisciplinary learning and exchange which, by focussing on a real case, would provide recommendations for appropriate integrated action. The engendering of interdisciplinary awareness and integrated action requires the development of new training technologies, capable of synthesizing the range of disciplinary perspectives held by practising professionals. In this way, collaboration between scientists and administrative decision-makers can be promoted, which will in due course bear fruit in the form of management policies and initiatives which produce balanced coordinated development of wetland ecosystems such as the Kolleru Lake.
