The IUCN World Conservation Congress is the world’s largest and most important conservation event. Held every four years, the Congress aims to improve how we manage our natural environment for human, social and economic development.
Innovations & Incentives is the theme of this years’ conference. In a time with large infrastructural and policy changes in agriculture, rapid technological development as well as growing and volatile markets, we believe that this is a timely and highly relevant theme.
Swedish International Agriculture Network Initiative (SIANI)
Agriculture-Sanitation Expert group
While Sweden has an established history of research and development in ecological sanitation and urine‐separating systems, we have so far failed in linking agriculture and sanitation on a large‐scale within the urban context.
“Biofuels: A Guide for the Confused” is written primarily for field staff and decision-makers involved in biofuel development. It assumes no previous or specialist knowledge of biofuels in terms of their technical/engineering characteristics or biological/cultivation aspects of biofuel feedstocks.
The conference seeks to improve both scientific and practical understanding of how biological, organic and mineral resources are best integrated in the management of agricultural soils by African smallscale farmers.
