Soil erosion produces sediment, which is the greatest pollutant by volume entering our lakes, streams, and wetlands. Farming, logging, and construction activities are the major contributors to erosion and off-site sedimentation.

The Expert Meeting will form a platform to discuss erosion and sedimentation management for sustainable development. So this Meeting is an opportunity to invite international and regional resource persons, agencies and individuals to come up with an initiative to deal with soil erosion and sediment issues. Such initiative is expected to help regional communities achieve practical outputs through partnership, pooling resources, focusing science, coordinating efforts, sharing information and experiences, and generating a broad basis of support.
