Natural resources are critically important components of the earth’s life support system. SCSI has selected the Theme as “Managing Soil and Water Resources for Climate-Smart Agriculture Toward Global Food and Livelihood Security”. This theme will build on WASWAC’s and ISCO’s earlier accomplishments which encompassed the necessity and contributions of soil and water conservation and land husbandry toward sustained economic, especially agricultural growth which is paramount for food security. The unabated degradation of global natural resources exacerbates the scarcity of productive soils and the increasing prevalence of droughts adds unprecedented pressures on water resources. With the topical theme of Managing Soil and Water Resources for Climate Smart Agriculture Toward Global Food and Livelihood Security, this International Conference will be organized from 5 th-9 th November, 2019 at New Delhi, India. The conference will focus on the protection and conservation of land and natural resources for sustainable use and development. The target groups include scientists, researchers and academicians with multidisciplinary expertise, outreach and extension professionals, engineers, land users including farmers, planners and policy makers, students, NGO’s, and other stakeholders who are active or interested in the states of art and science of natural resources management. We feel proud in inviting your active participation and valued deliberations to make this international conference a successful event.
