IUCLAND – International University Cooperation on Land Protection in European-Asiatic Countries, is an educational project funded by the Erasmus+ Programme under the Key Action 2 on “Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices”.
The aim of IUCLAND is to foster international cooperation among partner Universities through the implementation of training activities (namely summer schools and workshops) dedicated to the topic of Land Degradation. Indeed, the project promotes international cooperation at both regional and cross-regional level, by allowing the interaction among European, Far East Asian Central Asian partners.
The project implementation period is from 2015 to 2018.
Land degradation is a global problem, affecting about a quarter of the world’s land area (FAO, 2013) and impacts one out of three people (UNCCD, 2013), compromising welfare levels of populations that heavily depend on natural resources.
The Third Steering Committee Meeting was held on July 9th and 10th (2018) at Faculty of Agriculture University of Zagreb (FAZ). The welcome address was given by Project Manger, Prof. Marija Romić and Zoran Grgić, dean of Faculty of Agriculture University of Zagreb.
"International Summer School on Land Degradation in Zagreb" is the sixth summer school of the IUCLAND project and it will held at University of Zagreb Faculty of Agriculture, Zagreb (Croatia) from 2nd - 8th July 2018.
