The International Conference on Geo-science and Geospatial Technologies (GGT): Ecosystem Restoration and Natural Resources Management a groundbreaking event that marks a significant milestone in the field of geoscience and geospatial technologies, bringing together experts, researchers, practitioners, and policymakers from around the world to explore the critical theme of ecosystem restoration and natural resources management.
The conference serves as a platform for interdisciplinary discussions, knowledge exchange, and collaboration, with a specific focus on harnessing the power of geoscience and geospatial technologies to address the pressing environmental challenges we face today. By merging both the domains of earth science and spatial analysis, GGT aims to foster innovative solutions and strategies for the restoration and sustainable management of our natural resources.
Ecosystem restoration has emerged as a major concern in recent years, as the consequences of climate change, habitat degradation, deforestation, and biodiversity loss become increasingly evident. The urgent need to restore and conserve our ecosystems requires a multidimensional approach that integrates scientific research, technological advancements, and effective resource management practices. Geoscience and geospatial technologies play a pivotal role in this endeavor, providing powerful tools for mapping, monitoring, and analyzing the Earth's physical and biological systems.
The First International Conference on GGT brings together a diverse community of professionals and experts, including geographers, geologists, ecologists, remote sensing specialists, GIS professionals, environmental scientists, and policymakers. Through plenary sessions, keynote speeches, panel discussions, and interactive workshops, participants will dive into a wide range of topics related to ecosystem restoration and natural resources management.
This conference offers a unique opportunity for professionals and researchers to share their experiences, present their cutting-edge research findings, and engage in meaningful discussions on the latest advancements in geoscience and geospatial technologies. Moreover, it aims to foster collaboration among academia, industry, government agencies, and non-governmental organizations, with the goal of establishing a global network of experts committed to ecosystem restoration and natural resources management.
The (GGT) conference is an online conference organized by COEUS Institute where all proceedings submitted to it will swiftly be published within three months, where authors can now have their publications featured in Sustainable Landscape and Natural Resources Management (SLNR) book series by Springer Nature.
