- Second International Conference, Environment and Natural Resources Management in Developing and Transition Economies with a Preconference on Migration and the Environment
- Clermont Ferrand, CERDI, University of Auvergne, France
- Environment and development concerns will remain on the agendas, although the financial and economic crises have diverted attention from global and local environmental threats and natural resource management issues in developing and developed economies. The IPCC will release its 5th Assessment Report; states will meet on Environment and Development issues within the Earth Summit 2012 to be held in Rio in June.This Second Conference is intended to give an echo to these concerns and welcome papers on topics related with the so-called three pillars of sustainable development: a better environment, good economic performance and poverty reduction as targeted by the Millennium Development Goals. Moreover, this Second Conference welcomes a preconference on Migration and the Environment. This preconference will address more precisely the issue of remittances and migration related to environmental issues. Remittances are recorded to be the most important flow directed towards developing countries and have recently received increasing attention in the literature. Remittances may have a bidirectional relationship with environmental issues. The preconference will also deal with the vulnerability - migration nexus.[gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
