Valuing Living Aquatic Resources (LARS) of Wetlands in China

A two-year research project, titled "Valuing the role of living aquatic resources (LARS) in multiple-use, seasonally inundated wetlands in China for improved governance" or usually knowns as brief title "Valuing Aquatic Resources (LARS) of Wetlands in China", is applying an integrated approach for accessing and valuing the role of living aquatic resources (LARS) in wetlands in the Yellow River (Huanghe) basin in China, funded through the Challenge Program for Water and Food (CPWF). This project has been initiated on 01 January 2008 as a collaborative effort between the WorldFish Center (WorldFish) and the Chinese Academy of Fishery Sciences (CAFS), with the cooperation of provincial and local authorities in Shandong and Henan provinces. Identifying the challenge of required working across country boundary, a web site was setup to use as a platform to work together among all research team members and China partners to maintain the web content, shared the project calendar and all related project documents in one place, hosted on one site. To make use the free services provided, the project web site for public viewing and another with restricted access for registered team members only were created using Google Sites, which is one of the application included in Google Apps. For restricted access web site, there is a GIS page, which is one of the research components page, provides the space for GIS team members make announcements, sharing information, and upload files. If you are interested to know more about the GIS technologies/tools we applied for this project, please send your Gmail account to the website administrator ( You will receive an invitation email, so that you can proceed with first login.
