Water in Transforming Landscapes : 21 September, 2017

Published: 2017-09-05

International Foundation For Science (IFS) in partnership with Swedish Water House (SIWI) will lead a conference session “Water in Transforming Landscapes”on 21st September 2017, within; "AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH FOR DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE - 2017".

Climate change, a growing world population and rapidly expanding patterns of consumption and energy use increase the pressure on natural resources. Sustainable forestry and agriculture in line with current levels will not be enough to secure future food, water and fiber needs as the demands increase. Restoration of the world’s vast areas of degraded lands into productive and resilient landscapes is crucial and must integrate blue and green water strategies to ensure water resilience and productivity in the landscape. More attention to, and better understanding of, the complex interaction between water, forests and agriculture is greatly needed. By exploring scientific, practical and governance aspects of hydrology and green water management we aim to provide practitioners with tools that facilitate landscape restoration and productivity. Abstracts on scientific and/or practical studies, projects and initiatives contributing to landscape restoration, green-water management and hydrology are welcomed. Governance initiatives, studies or projects are also welcomed.
