The 2013 Land & Development conference offers insightful presentations on the Greater Golden Horseshoe development market. The program will include 12-month review of the market and forecast on where land values are going and what developments are on the horizon for 2014 and beyond. What developers and investors are active today, tomorrow and who are they? What are their strategies and how will their behavior impact the market?
The conference will focus on both residential and commercial development activity. Mixed use developments, low rise residential, and land banking will also be key themes throughout the program. We are very excited to bring forward a program in 2013 that will focus on: financing; large/mega development projects throughout the GGH; construction costs; community/neighborhood developments; the explosion and implosion of employment, growth, and development nodes in the region; priorities and planning policies; infrastructure and its impact; and ancillary forces that will impact our region and in turn the development community.
LuWQ2013 is an international and interdisciplinary conference on the cutting edge of science, management and policy to minimise effects of agriculture and land use changes on the quality of groundwater and surface waters.
The objective of INTERDROUGHT is to serve as a platform for presenting and debating key issues and strategies relevant for increasing the yield and stability of crops under drought conditions by genetic and crop management approaches. Great advances have been made in recent years in understanding the molecular basis of plant responses and plant tolerance to drought stress. Hundreds of drought responsive genes have been identified and the function of some of these has been resolved at the cellular level. However, there is a huge gap between the molecular level science and the interpretation and application of this knowledge at the whole plant level in the field. There is an increasing demand in both public and private research sectors for crosstalk between disciplines involved with the molecular science and those involved with whole plant problems aimed at solving issues at the farm and field level in order to advance practical solutions to drought prone farming. INTERDROUGHT-IV offers a unique and timely platform for this purpose.
