Sessions, Panels and Side Events

COP24 // Climate Action, Land and the Nexus

The event will feature two panel discussions. The first panel will focus on examples of climate action in the domains of energy and food and linkages to land use policies. The second panel will focus on African stakeholders at the Nexus and discuss what research, innovation and new knowledge are required in the long run in order to strengthen their preparedness for the impacts of climate change.

The side event will be complemented by and exhibition of 20 Copernicus satellite image posters illustrating the land degradation – climate change interactions extracted by the JRC World Atlas of Desertification.

IAMG2019 // 20th Annual Conference of the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences

The conference will cover the usual topics in geo-mathematics, geostatistics, and geomodeling but in particular will bring to fore geomodeling issues at the intersection of food, water, and energy. The challenge of meeting the increased demand for food, water, and energy and the resultant stress on our geo-sphere is broadly accepted as one of the major scientific challenges facing mankind. The feedback processes intrinsic to this tri-partite cycle are best-studied using sophisticated...
