Annual National Symposium on Science for Sustainable Development (NSSD)

The aim of this symposium series is to create a forum for exchange and discussion on sustainable development though science between scientists and researchers from different fields of Science: Agriculture, Natural Sciences, and Medicine and Health sciences.

It is increasingly recognized that sustainable development is a complex and spatially heterogeneous system composed many components.

Therefore multidisciplinary approaches are required to understand it’s functioning and to predict the dynamics of its capacity for sustainable agricultural development, to protect the environment by immobilizing pollutants and limiting erosion, to provide clean energy, water and physical support for living organisms, sustainable use of raw materials, new materials production and etc… necessary for human survival and comfort. NSSD will continue to foster cross fertilization between discipline and multidisciplinary collaborations.
