XXI Brazilian Meeting on Soil and Water Management and Conservation (RBMCSA) and VIII Minas Gerais Soil Science Symposium (SMCS)

July 28 @ 08:30 - August 3 @ 17:00

The scientific and technological discussion on the management and conservation of soil and water in mountain farming areas (AMo) is important for several reasons, namely: (i) environmental vulnerability; (ii) water supply; (iii) biodiversity conservation; (vi) climate change; (vii) economy and food security; (viii) agricultural productivity; (ix) long-term sustainability; (x) knowledge transfer; (xi) public policies; and (xii) international collaboration. In Brazil, AMo areas can be found in all regions of the country: south-southeast – Mantiqueira (SP, MG, and RJ), Mar (SP, RJ, PR, and SC); Geral (RS and SC) and Espinhaço (MG) mountain ranges; northeast? Ibiapaba mountains (CE and PI), Espinhaço (BA), Sincorá (BA), Gavião River (BA) and Timbó (BA), and Agreste Pernambucano (PI) and Chapada da Diamantina (BA); central-west? Chapadas dos Veadeiros (GO), Guimarães (MT) and Parecis (MT); and north: Serra do Carajás (PA), Canga (PA), Cachimbo (PA), Divisor (AC), Cachoeira (AC); Aracá (AM) and Tepenquém (RR). The XXI RBMCSA and VII SMCS are intended to be a forum for discussing the main problems and potential alternatives and strategies, bringing together people from research, extension, and teaching from governmental, non-governmental, and associated private institutions and all regions of Brazil. This will be an opportunity for targeted discussion in a production environment that has not been tackled before, either in Brazil or other countries. International dissemination will take place outside Brazil, as international collaboration is one of the aims of these events. Workshops/round tables with specific themes for each of the reasons identified as necessary will be organized to seek plausible solutions that can be transformed into attitudes on a local, regional, and national scale. Identifying those involved in each of these workshops will also be worked on so that the objectives are integrated.
