The proper understanding of the environmental system is the first step towards the sound natural resource management. Every decision of the government on environment-related matters should be based on the analysis of the recognized critical issues and their primary causes.
The current status of the lagoon environment is, however, not clearly understood at least not to the extent to assist decision making for sustainable lagoon management by the government and its resource users. For instance, how is the current water quality in the lagoon? What is the level of pollution and where it is most severe? What is the past and current land use around the lagoon? How water circulates in the lagoon? What is the impact of annual flooding? What are the fish species available in the lagoon? These questions should be answered to guide the decision makers toward a sustainable lagoon resource management.
In an attempt to respond to these questions, the IMOLA Project has been undertaking a series of surveys to promote a better understanding of the lagoon environmental system and to assist the decision making process for the lagoon management by the government and lagoon resource users.
