2nd International Conference on Environmental and Economic Impact on Sustainable Development--Incorporating Environmental Economics, Toxicology and Brownfields
2014-05-14 to 2014-05-16
Ancona, Italy
The Conference will discuss how to assess the impact of economic constraints on the environment, considering the social aspects as well as any resulting environmental damage. The overuse of natural resources and the resulting pollution of the environment need to be better understood in financial terms.

20th International Symposium on Society and Resource Management
2014-06-09 to 2014-06-13
Hannover, Germany
Conference Theme:
Challenges of Urban and Rural Transformation

For centuries, one of the visible signs of the interdependence of natural resource management and societal processes was the relationship between urban and rural areas. Natural products and services were provided by rural areas, in exchange for labor, trade and cultural services offered by the urban areas. Current megatrends such as climate change, urbanization, energy demand and an increasing land-use competition lead to spatial transformation all around the globe and to a state of transition. This transformation affects both rural and urban areas and requires changes on all levels of society, economy and politics.

The 20th ISSRM will put a focus on these changes, their societal impacts and the potential to mitigate their effects on natural resources and humankind.

Carbon-Land-Property Conference
2014-07-01 to 2014-07-04
Copenhagen, Denmark
Key questions for the conference are: Will REDD+ actually reduce greenhouse gas emissions and do we have sufficient knowledge of carbon storage in complex land use systems to be able to address this question effectively? Can implementation be monitored adequately at different scales? What governance and property regimes emerge and how do these affect notions of citizenship? And how might REDD+ and the so-called safeguards affect people’s rights, livelihoods and biodiversity?

Bayreuth, Germany
The focus of BIOGEOMON is on the biogeochemistry of forest and natural ecosystems as influenced by anthropogenic and environmental factors. We invite empirical and modeling studies on fluxes and processes related to the turnover of major and trace elements at the ecosystem, watershed, landscape, and global scale.

IUCN World Parks Congress 2014
2014-11-12 to 2014-11-19
Sydney, Australia
This year, preparations will shift into high gear for the most important protected areas event of the decade, the IUCN World Parks Congress. Held only once every ten years, the sixth IUCN World Parks Congress will be hosted by Australia in Sydney, from 12 to 19 November 2014. Serving as more than a meeting place, the WPC is designed to achieve outcomes that have global and local impact, and influence the direction and trends involved in contemporary PA management. This Congress will serve as a vital link to achieving IUCN’s overall vision of a “just world that values and conserves nature” and deliver the IUCN Programme 2013-2106.
