 1st International Conference on Arid Land (Desert Technology)

  • Narita Japan 24 - 28 May, 2011

 Organisation

Presentation

There have been 10th Conferences on Desert Technology held since 1990.
They addressed :
  • The natural characteristics of desert and desertified areas (e.g. climate, hydrology, and vegetation),
  • The mechanism of the desertification, and prevention methods.
  • The conferences have been a great source of learning for researchers from the relevant countries who contributed their knowledge, technology and participated in the very productive working groups.
  • The issues of desertification still remain a global concern however, requiring continued and expanding research to negate the consequences.
    The previous conferences have often focused on technological aspects of desertification in arid regions. Based on previous experiences and accomplishments, we offer an opportunity to participate in the comprehensive discussions, the presentation of research projects including natural, technological, and human sciences towards overcoming constraints of desertification.
