International Association of People-Environment Studies Symposium 2017
From Wednesday 27 September 2017
To Friday 29 September 2017

You are cordially invited to participate at the IAPS 2017 Symposium in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Themed 'Knowledge for climate-proof urban development in rapidly changing environments', IAPS 2017 will take a pioneering look at urban development, people and environmental behavior with a particular focus on Africa, Asia and Latin America. Participants will debate the added value of explicitly relating scientific knowledge about climate, risks and extreme events to pro-environmental behavior and city planning.

The IAPS 2017 Symposium will be the first of its kind in East Africa. The symposium will provide a platform to debate questions such as: What are the implications of global environmental changes for land use planning in coastal cities and inland states with low economies? What are the consequences in terms of global health challenges? Whose responsibility is it to prevent and reduce negative impacts of climate change?

Themes

  • Planning and design in disasters, multiple risks and climate change
  • Housing, land use planning, informality and urban settlements
  • Gender-based experiences, behavior, perceptions and environmental change
  • Resilient urban infrastructure, transportation and energy
  • Governance and management of the urban built environment
  • Ecosystems services, green infrastructure, health and livelihoods
  • Dissemination of knowledge, advocacy and communication

 

Important dates

  • 30 September 2016: Call for abstracts
  • 30 November 2016: Abstract submission deadline
  • 1 March 2017: Full Paper submission deadline
  • 30 April 2017: Early Bird Registration deadline
  • 31 July 2017: Registration closes
