Natural resources, especially soil & water, are essential components not only of agro-ecosystems but also of the total biosphere. However, over the time, these resources have degraded and depleted in the absence of judicious use, management and conservation. The degradation of soil and water resources has long been recognized as a primary threat to productive and sustainable agriculture. Ongoing climate changes have added complexities to the challenges faced by land users and policy makers, whether in developed or developing countries. This international conference, therefore, is intended to provide a forum, and perhaps an action plan, to address these global concerns.
The Soil Conservation Society of India (SCSI) will be hosting the conference from November 5-9, 2019 at New Delhi, India. For the first time, the World Association of Soil and Water Conservation (WASWAC) and the International Soil Conservation Organization (ISCO) will jointly plan the conference as the 4th WASWAC World Conference the 20th ISCO Conference, with SCSI hosting it as the 4th SCSI International Conference. The purpose of the conference can be fulfilled by addressing the themes and sub-themes.
