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 10th IUCLAND workshop will be realized on 15th December starting at 9.00 CET. The workshop, that will be realized in remote mode via Webex, will be dedicated to the topic "Biotechnological approach in solution of problems of land degradation".
The 9th IUCLAND workshop will be realized on 12th December 2017 starting at 16.00 CET at Università degli Studi del Molise Dipartimento Agricoltura, Ambiente e Alimenti, Campobasso (Italy) and will be dedicated to the topic of "Land degradation and human activities". Relevant stakeholders of the project will participate at the event. For more detailed information download the material below.
