The congress is being hosted by the Australian Society of Horticultural Science, the New Zealand Institute of Agricultural and Horticultural Science, and the Secretariat of the Pacific Community, under the auspices of the International Society for Horticultural Science.

Held every four years at various sites around the world, and attracting more than 2,000 delegates, the congress is a world forum on all aspects of horticulture and horticultural science.

The theme of the 2014 congress is ‘Horticulture - sustaining lives, livelihoods and landscapes’. We’ve chosen this theme to highlight the unique potential of horticulture to address the key issues of modern society - health, wealth and the environment. Horticulture matters to us all, whether we are involved in research, extension, education, servicing horticulture in production, amenity or environmental horticulture, in developed or developing countries.

In the spirit of scientific cooperation and sharing knowledge globally, the congress will showcase advanced technologies that are becoming globally significant in a world with a rapidly growing population, less cultivatable land and an environment under threat.

This will be the second time that Australia has had the privilege to host the congress. The vibrant city of Brisbane and the adjoining Gold and Sunshine Coasts are rich in natural beauty and cultural heritage and offer adventure, fun, and entertainment for all ages.

FAO will host an International Symposium on Agroecology for Food Security and Nutrition from 18th to 19th September to explore recent scientific research and knowledge and promote open dialogue while showcasing existing experiences and programs on Agroecology. The event brings together international experts in the field of Agroecology and within the new FAO Strategic Framework and Strategic Objective 2 to “Increase and improve provision of Goods and Services from Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries in a sustainable manner”. 

The Symposium will:

·         develop an action plan for a follow up process in Africa and Asia including potential activities in the context of the FAO Strategic Framework;

·         provide a forum for taking stock of the current state of science and practices of Agroecology, as well as for initiatives underway around the world and thus contribute to the development of an international framework for research on Agroecology, with consideration of economic, social and environmental aspects in developed and developing countries;

·         produce scientific proceedings and other information material for web sharing (e.g. agroecological practices and video interviews).

We are also pleased to announce that a poster segment is being organized as part of the Symposium. Please click here for the poster registration form

Published on

The conference Agriculture and Climate Change: Adapting Crops to Increased Uncertainty will focus on the likely impact of climate change on crop production and explore approaches to maintain and increase crop productivity in the face of climate change.

Abstracts for oral and poster presentations are invited on the conference topics and should be submitted using the online abstract submission system by 17 October 2014.

Maintaining crop production to feed a growing population during a period of climate change is the greatest challenge we face as a species. 

The increasing crop yields during the Green Revolution in the last century were brought about mostly through the application of chemical fertilisers and pesticides (and during an uncommon period of climate stability). Yield increases have slowed and may go into decline as the world runs out of sources of phosphate and fossil energy used to produce nitrate fertilisers. New approaches to yield improvement are desperately needed to produce more climate resilient crops. 

This conference will focus on the likely impact of climate change on crop production and explore approaches to maintain and increase crop productivity in the face of climate change. 

Topics List      

  • Increased agricultural uncertainty
  • Sustainability of agriculture
  • Abiotic stress
  • Biotic stress
  • Effects of CO2 on plant growth
  • Resource use efficiency
  • New crops for a new climate
  • Technologies for rapid crop improvement
