Proceedings of the Global Forum on Salinization and Climate Change available online

Soil salinization is one of the more subtle and progressive causes of soil degradation, threatening some of the most productive lands currently under irrigated agriculture. It is also an increasing environmental concern for those areas for which suggested climate change scenarios predict aridity increase or sea level rise.

The Global Forum on Salinization and Climate Change, Valencia, Spain 25-29 October 2010, constituted an opportunity to discuss, from a multi-disciplinary perspective, the problems associated with salinization and climate change and strengthened the dialogue between policy makers, scientists and field experts. The Forum, coordinated by ex- soil reclamation and development officer, Clemencia Licona Manzur, is expected to further facilitate work on salinization associated with climate change and establish the basis for more research and field applications to adapt ecosystems to climate change.
The forum proceedings are now available online. They include an executive summary with discussions during the Forum, conclusions, abstracts of papers presented and a CD with full versions with more technical details. The proceedings can be found here:
