AEIAR Conference : FUTURE LAND USE OF RURAL AND PERI-URBAN AREAS

Date:

Land is the basis of agricultural production. Beyond the simple productive aspect, it provides many ecosystem services (aesthetic and cultural dimensions, flood prevention, carbon sequestration … ). This resource is becoming scarcer under the influence of competition between different land uses (housing, infrastructure, afforestations…) and sometimes even a “non-use” through land abandonment.

On occasion of the 50th anniversary of the AEIAR network is organizing a conference to reflect on the past but more so on the future of land use of Europes rural and peri-urban areas.
This event will take place on the 7th and 8th of September 2016, in Brussels.
