Organized by:

The Interdisciplinary Studies Center for Integrated Natural Resources and Environment Management (INREM) at the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB) is set to hold the Fourth International Conference on Integrated Natural Resources and Environment Management (INREM 2023) on November 21-23, 2023.

Significant initiatives in advancing and mainstreaming integrated natural resources management have brought forth transformations in the global landscape. These initiatives include the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, and UN Convention on Biodiversity.

Sustaining these transformations require proposing and implementing sustainable solutions. Making all these work necessitate interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and transdisciplinary approaches for the agriculture, aquatic, environment and natural resources sectors.

In this conference, experiences in future-proofing and sustainable development through INREM will be shared among academics, researchers, and practitioners in environment and natural resources management.

With the theme “Future-proofing Sustainable Ridge-to-Reef Transformations through INREM,” the conference will gather academics, researchers, and practitioners from across the globe in plenary talks, workshops, parallel sessions, and poster presentations who will share their knowledge and experiences on mainstreaming INREM in local governance and sustainable development.

Objectives: 

The objectives of the 4th International Conference on INREM are the following:

  • Facilitate sharing of ideas and experiences on resilience-building, sustainable development, and integrated management of agriculture, environment, aquatic, and natural resources in the Asia Pacific Region;
  • Synthesize knowledge on integrated natural resources and environment management (INREM) of lake and river basins, landscapes and seascapes, small islands, and rural-urban areas and their interrelationships;
  • Institute a network of professionals and practitioners/communities of practice among INREM stakeholders in the Asia-Pacific Region.

INREM 2023 is organized by the:

  1. UPLB Interdisciplinary Studies Center for Integrated Natural Resources and Environment Management
  2. University of the Philippines Los Baños
