IAPG at the GfGD Annual Conference

6th GfGD - Geology for Global Development Annual Conference
Water and Sustainable Development
2 November 2018
hosted by the Geological Society of London

Burlington House
London (United Kingdom)

Understanding, managing and protecting freshwater and marine water resources is critical to the delivery of many of the Sustainable Development Goals (e.g., water and sanitation, healthy oceans, zero hunger, good health, gender equality, energy, industry, and biodiversity). Increasing urbanisation, industrialisation, and climate change are increasing pressure on water supplies and reducing water quality.
This conference, organised by the GfGD - Geology for Global Development, will explore the role of geoscientists in managing conflicting demands for diverse water resources, ensuring that the needs of the poorest are met while maintaining healthy ecosystems.
The conference will include an introduction to the International Association for Promoting Geoethics, given by Nic Bilham (IAPG Continental Coordinator for Europe).

IAPG and GfGD have a Memorandum of Agreement from May 2017.
