knoell is proudly co-organizing the symposium “Water Scarcity: Challenges for Agriculture” as part of the ACS Annual meeting in San Diego, 25-29 August 2019. The call for paper is now open at the ACS website and we would like to encourage you to submit an abstract, for a talk or poster presentation, would you have some views to share with the Agro community: “Water scarcity is one of the greatest challenges of the twenty-first century.” FAO 2017
Deadline for abstracts: 20 March 2019
The symposium aims at presenting opportunities for new technologies, innovative agricultural practices, and policies that can mitigate the impact of water scarcity on food security and food safety. In addition to new technological solutions and conservation efforts, we invite communications on water policy, economics, sustainability programs and agronomic practices that could contribute to protect this precious resource. Whether the focus is on supply, recycling technologies, water management or demand reduction, contributions from different fields of research are welcomed. There is an urgent need to address water scarcity by delivering integrated solutions to prevent food crisis, water supply disruptions and population migration.
