3rd International Interdisciplinary Conference on
LAND USE AND WATER QUALITY:
Effect of Agriculture on the Environment
The Hague, the Netherlands, 29 May – 1 June 2017
Abstract submission will be possible before end June 2016, abstracts are due by 17 October 2016.
More information is on http://www.luwq2017.nl/.
This conference aims to discuss the entire policy cycle for water quality improvement. This cycle includes problem recognition, formulation of technical options, the process of policy development, interaction with policy makers, stakeholders and pressure groups, policy implementation, monitoring and research. This conference also aims to intensify contacts, on the one hand, between scientists with a background in natural sciences and scientists with a background in social and economic sciences and, on the other hand, between scientists, water managers and policy makers. In short, the objectives are:
– to provide forum for exchange of scientific knowledge, research on system knowledge, modelling and uncertainty;
– to discuss the entire policy cycle for water quality improvement;
– to intensify contacts (a) between soil/water related scientists, agro related scientists, social scientists, ecological scientists and economists, and (b) between scientists, water managers and policy makers.
LuWQ2017 is the follow-up to the successful LuWQ conferences, LuWQ2015 held in Vienna, Austria, in September 2015 and the LuWQ2013 conference held in The Hague, the Netherlands, in June 2013.
