The Brazilian Society of Soil Conservation joined the SBCS in 1970, but soil conservation events continued to be promoted as Congresses until 1992, when they were called the Brazilian Meeting of Soil and Water Management and Conservation. The first meeting of a group of researchers interested in soil conservation in Brazil took place in 1975, in Londrina, with the title of “National Research Meeting on Soil Conservation with Rain Simulator”. In 1978 the Meeting was held in Passo Fundo and in 1980 in Recife. In the same year, in Brasilia, the III Brazilian Congress of Soil Conservation was held. The events that followed in Campinas (1982), Porto Alegre (1984), Campo Grande (1986), João Pessoa (1988) and Londrina (1990) received the same name and numerical sequence until 1992, when it was renamed the Brazilian Meeting of Soil and Water Conservation.
Currently, the Brazilian Meeting of Soil and Water Management and Conservation (RBMCSA) is an event promoted every two years by SBCS and aimed at bringing together researchers from the areas of Soil and Water Management and Conservation.
The XIX RBMCSA was held between July 29 and August 3, 2012, in Lages, SC.
The XX RBMCSA was held in Foz do Iguaçu-Paraná, in 2016
