Theme – Catalyzing Change: Innovating
and Adapting
– As global climate change continues to impact land and water resources, there is a pressing need to adapt and plan our local and regional projects accordingly. The challenges we are experiencing in arid lands require us to develop innovative methods of adapting existing systems. These efforts aim to mitigate potentially disastrous repercussions and ensure the preservation and sustainability of our way of life in desert regions.

Submission Guidelines – The 2024 Land & Water Summit invites researchers, practitioners, and experts to showcase their work through poster presentations at our conference. We seek contributions that align with the theme, “Catalyzing Change: Innovating and Adapting,” and address the critical issues surrounding land and water resource management in arid regions.

Student category will be judged on technical excellence, originality, presentation, and storytelling. The winner will receive a certificate of acknowledgment (must be present to be judged).
