UNESCO INTERNATIONAL GEOSCIENCE and GEOPARKS PROGRAMME

Call for Abstracts for the forthcoming 37th International Geological Conference in Delhi, India from 2-8 March 2020.

Within the United Nations, UNESCO alone has the mandate to support research and capacity building in Earth Sciences. The International Geoscience and Geoparks Programme is our flagship.

The International Geoscience and Geoparks Programme (IGGP) is the oldest and most successful example of scientific cooperation between a non-governmental organizations - the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS) and Global Geoparks Network (GGN) and an intergovernmental organization – UNESCO. During almost 50 years, this programme has been the gateway to successful scientific careers in pioneering research for thousands of geoscientists. The 37th International Geological Conference provides an excellent opportunity to showcase the research work of UNESCO’s contribution to the geoscientific community and its impact.

Developing an advanced understanding of the Earth’s fundamental processes and resources is essential to fulfilling the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. At this most important International Geological Congress proposes to hold a series of sub-symposia sessions to present the role of UNESCO and IUGS, link activities, achievements and outcome to the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs) focussing on contributions from the past and present IGCP projects and UNESCO Global Geoparks.

The symposia sessions will be entitled ‘The roles of UNESCO, IGCP and IUGS in realizing the UN Sustainable Development Goals’ and the details can be found by the Symposium No 1.12. under Theme 1 (https://www.36igc.org/science-program). Online abstract submission and super early bird registration are open now. The maximum word limit of abstract is 250 words without any illustrations, table and references and the last date for submission of Abstracts is 31st August 2019. We invite you to submit your abstract as soon as possible please.
