16 & 17 March 2023, School of Geography and the Environment, University of Oxford
Deserts and drylands encompass 40% of the globe and shelter two billion people. Arid regions are home to the major religions, valued natural resources, scarcity, wealth and poverty, and face issues that dominate our time. Geopolitics, climate change, development, land degradation, population growth and conflict are issues that have relevance beyond any singular department or perspective.
The Oxford Desert Conference brings together academics and non-academics who research, work and live across the world's desert and semi-desert regions for two days of vibrant talks, presentations, panels and networking opportunities. It is a truly interdisciplinary event which allows social and physical scientists to exchange views, develop lasting collaborations and make a positive global impact.
The 6th Oxford Interdisciplinary Desert Conference will take place on 16-17 March 2023.
