The 2012 Sustainable Irrigation Conference provides a unique forum for multidisciplinary discussion. The objective of the meeting is to generate debate and ideas about how to make irrigation more environmentally, socially and economically sustainable.
The purpose of the conference is to provide examples of how irrigation can become more sustainable. Papers are invited under the list of topics provided. Papers should focus on the implications of the findings for improving the sustainability of irrigation, whether this be drainage, irrigation techniques, economic modelling, governance structures for irrigation management, irrigation technology, reuse of water or many other aspects. The conference will include plenary sessions of specially invited papers from both developed and developing countries providing examples of how irrigation can become sustainable. Lessons will be drawn from the past, present and future.
