Sustaining Economies and Natural Resources in a Changing World:
Key Role of Land Grant Universities

April 2-3, 2013 | Reitz Union, University of Florida | Gainesville, FL


Why You Should Attend

The program will address future research and extension opportunities and partnerships in the following topic areas:

  • Food Security and Agricultural Production
  • Infrastructure and Transportation
  • Energy
  • Sustainable Development (Coastal and Inland)
  • Wildlife and Natural Systems Management
  • Sustainable Resource Policies

The program will address many changes that are occurring and will continue to influence research and extension programs at state and global levels.  These changes are driven to a large extent by:

  • Increases in human populations, with projections of a global population of over 9 billion people by the middle of this century 
  • Changes in climate, climate variability and sea levels
  • Decreasing availabilities of fresh water, arable land, fossil fuels, and materials

Climate change is one of the most important issues that all colleges in our universities and all segments of society must consider as they plan for the future. This challenge was not considered even 50 years ago. Now, it is a key component in universities’ agendas and in federal, state, and local agencies.
