Registration for the International Arid Lands Consortium (IALC) Virtual Conference, Addressing the Environmental Challenges of Arid Lands, is now open and free! The three-day international conference, to be held 24-26 May 2021, commemorates 30 years of collaboration on arid lands issues. The program will celebrate IALC collaborative research and demonstration projects and examine current and future challenges in IALC’s regions of focus. A key goal of the conference is to underscore the value of the IALC mission: promoting peace through collaborative research and demonstration projects in the arid lands of the world. Keynote presentations and panel discussions will emphasize the broader value of collaborative-multinational research and problem-solving to address issues that confront the sustainable use and management of arid lands globally. Graduate students are encouraged to enter the Lightning Talk competition to share their creative contributions about conference themes.
