ICID AGGP Workshop

August 12-17, 2018. Saskatoon, SK

The 2018 International Conference and 69th IEC Meeting of the ICID was held in Saskatoon, SK on August 12-17. The theme of the ICID conference was “Innovative and Sustainable Agri-water Management: Adapting to a Variable and Changing Climate.” The theme was explored through three sub-themes: Competing Water Demands; Resilient Agriculture – Adapting Agriculture to Climate Change; and Irrigation and Drainage in Perspective. The ICID conference featured a special workshop on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases, chaired by Professor Chandra Madramootoo.  Following is the workshop agenda agenda (PDF iconAugust 13: Workshop on Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Emissions), and presentations:
