International Congress on "Successful Transformation toward Land Degradation Neutrality (Future Perspective)"

Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to inform you that the International Congress on "Successful Transformation toward Land Degradation Neutrality (Future Perspective)" in commemoration of the 25th Anniversary of the coming into force of the United Nations Conventions to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) will take place on , 17-19 June 2019, in Ankara, TURKEY.

The congress will be co-hosted by Soil Science Society, Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, General Directorate of Combating Desertification and Erosion and Konya Food and Agriculture University, TURKEY to bring broad groups of senior scientists, academicians, experts, policy makers, young researchers and students from different national and international institutions to analyze the current and the future trends of soil and land resources; establish new policies based on the principles of land degradation neutrality and finally create a universal message for the sustainable use of world soil resources.

10th International Symposium AgroEnviron May 23-27, 2016 Stewart Center, Purdue University West Lafayette, Indiana, USA

Our environment continues to evolve, as factors such as global climate change and atmospheric warming alter local weather and growing conditions for agricultural crops. To some extent increasing carbon dioxide levels and higher temperatures may enhance plant growth, but other factors such as more variable and extreme precipitation events, flooding, drought, and excessively high temperatures may act to diminish crop production. This tenth International Symposium on Agriculture and the Environment seeks to provide a forum for scientists to present new research on environmental studies, agricultural research, processes of soil erosion by wind and water, conservation policies, and innovative practices to preserve and protect the soil, water, and air resources while at the same time providing for a sustainable agriculture.

 

Thematic Sessions:
1. Mitigation of and adaptation to climate change (Climate Smart Agriculture)
2. Soil conservation under climate change, and effect of extreme weather events
3. Modeling effects of climate change on agriculture and forestry
4. Sediment and water source fingerprinting & measurement techniques
5. Agricultural water conservation and water resources utilization
6. Future sustainability of healthy soils for agricultural production
7. Soils and diffuse pollution, and pollution control
8. Use of the concept of connectivity to assess water and sediment transfers
9. New technologies for agro-environmental studies
10. Risk assessment and environmental management
11. Science policy interface on biodiversity and ecosystem services
 
This meeting will be held concurrently with the 7th International Symposium on Gully Erosion (ISGE), with cross-over registration privileges and combined mid-week tour. Both meetings are being jointly hosted by the USDA-ARS National Soil Erosion Research Laboratory and Purdue University. Conference facilities, lodging, and meeting registration will be provided through Purdue. The meeting web site is at: http://topsoil.nserl.purdue.edu/AgroEnviron2016
