Program and Structure

The 5th ICEF will last for 5 days from Sunday 23 March until Thursday 27 March, and will open and end with Main Plenaries, the first of these offering the opportunity to consider overarching issues of human population, water, climate and fishery exploitation.

The 21 aquatic systems will be accommodated within the main part of the meeting, grouped in sessions. Each session will consist of a Plenary followed by a working group restricted to 12 participants. The task of this group will be to assemble the main findings from the Plenary. The results from these Group meetings, as well as form the Plenary discussions, will be gathered by Rapporteurs and presented in form of a synthesis at the closing Main Plenary.
