The Rapid Depletion of Resources and Global Pollution
The world population is expected to expand from the current 7.1 billion to 9.7 billion by 2050. The acceleration of the world economy’s integration, resulting in the increasing demand for natural resources, will place a heavy strain on our environment and resources. Lack of resource usage efficiency exacerbates the impact of resource exhaustion and global pollution.
These critical challenges need to be resolved urgently. The public and private sector organizations need to focus on Sustainable Development, using scientifically proven concepts to conserve the limited natural resources left. Astute and conscious application of resources and energy supported by the reuse and recycling initiatives and end-of-life products is imperative to the preservation of the Earth’s resources.
Global Conference on Resource Conservation and Sustainability (CRCS)
The 2014 Global Conference on Resource Conservation and Sustainability (CRCS) will be held from 26th and 27th August 2014. We aim to bring together researchers, academics, scientists and conservation practitioner communities to discuss the implications of how a rapidly growing global economy is straining the Earth’s natural resources and exchange pointers on new strategies and technologies on resource conservation.
The conference takes a broad interest in the area of resources, development and conservation, including but not limited to: renewable energy, environmental quality, management of ecosystems, environment and water resources, pollution in the atmosphere and environmental assessments. The conference also focuses on the implementation and integration of biodiversity and sustainability and protection of the ecosystems into international, national, corporate planning and reporting practices, policies and programs.

Authors as Reviewers: A Reciprocal System
Our academic events would not be what they were without a commitment to ensuring adherence to international norms of abstract peer review. Aventis relies on a large number of international scholars from around the world to contribute to a shared vision of promoting and engaging in international, intercultural and interdisciplinary dialogue, and if you are taking part in an Aventis event, then that means you.
As all authors have had their work reviewed by at least two reviewers, in the spirit of reciprocity, similarly we ask that all accepted authors be prepared to review up to five abstracts over the lifespan of submissions to the conference.
You are under no obligation to participate in this reciprocal system, but if you are selected to review, and undertake this task of grading abstracts for the CRCS 2014 conference, then you will be credited in the 2014 programme, and obtain a certificate stating that you were a part of the conference review team.
