About the Conference
The mother earth is under constant threat of Climate change, it has become the biggest threat to mankind, and due to this the responsibilities of humans to save earth have increased several folds. The agencies like the UN and its allied agencies like UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and World Health Organization (WHO), Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), The World Food Programme (WFP), are reporting the devastating effects of Humans spoils. As a need of the hour, we need the researchers, academicians, governments, and industries to take up a necessary step to save the planet earth and keep it livable for generations to come. As per the UN report, the number of undernourished people has increased from 777 million to 821 million over the last two years, confirming a worrying reversal of positive trends seen earlier in the new millennium.
Addressing the root causes will be as critical to achieving ZERO HUNGER by 2030. The Food Security, Sustainable Urban Development, Resource Conservations are going to be vital for saving the environment and humans.
The utilization of facilities and infrastructure that save energy, energy conservation; the efforts to find renewable energy sources, the accessible green buildings to the sun and the many plants / trees inherent in buildings, the adaptation to the global warming reduction or the policy to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions, and so forth; should be a good concern and sustainable in the future.
So from the platform of SURF – 2020, a second carbon-neutral conference, we call every responsible researcher, academicians, organization, and government to contribute their original research papers and studies to create a better livable world for tomorrow, for us and our generations to come.
You are cordially invited to participate in the conference SURF – 2020 which will be held at Bearys Knowledge Campus, Innoli, Mangalore, Karnataka, India, March 20-21, 2020.
