TERRAenVISION Environmental Issues Today: Scientific Solutions for Societal Issues
29 January 2018 - 01 February 2018
Our Planet suffers from human activities and the challenges seem to grow quicker than the solutions we can create. This conference aims to focus on the scientific research towards finding solutions for the societal issues of our time. TERRAenVISION promotes interdisciplinary collaboration and networking. In this conference we want to link to International policies such as the sustainable Development Goals, the UN Climate conventions, CAP and COP. The environmental issues we would like to highlight and discuss are: Climate change: Mitigation and Adaptation; Water Resources: Quality and Quantity; Land Degradation and Restoration; Erosion processes and nature based solutions; Fire in the Earth System, effects and prevention; Ecosystem Services and Nature Conservation; Science interface: with policy and public.
The deadline for oral contributions has been put off until 15th December and for poster contributions until one week before the meeting.
