International Symposium on Managing Land and Water for Climate-Smart Agriculture – Request to submit abstracts

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is organizing an International Symposium on Managing Land and Water for Climate-Smart Agriculture in Vienna from 25 July 2022 to 29 July 2022. Approximately 400 participants from IAEA Member States and invited international organizations are expected to attend this event.

The purpose of the event is to review recent development of nuclear, isotopic and related techniques to improve land and water management practices, provide information on the development of tools and technology packages to build soil resilience, adapt farming practices to the impact of climate change, as well as to nuclear or radiological emergencies; and to identify knowledge gaps, research needs and new opportunities to develop climate-smart agricultural practices to build capacities and transfer of technologies to Member States. The event is aimed at scientists, academics, research managers and laboratory personnel, policy makers from governmental, non-governmental and international organizations, donor agencies and potential partners.

Please note that IUSS will chair one of the sessions, e.g. on soil conservation, and exhibit during the symposium.

IUSS members are encouraged to submit abstracts according to the requirements set out in https://conferences.iaea.org/event/270/ until February 28,2022.
