15th International Peat Congress 2016
Peatlands in Harmony - Agriculture, Industry & Nature
This prestigious Quadrennial Convention will be hosted by the Malaysian Peat Society (MPS) in partnership with the International Peatland Society (IPS). It will be the first time in the Society’s long history of organising this Congress that it will convene at a location outside of Europe and North America and also in South East Asia.
The theme of the Congress is Peatlands in Harmony-Agriculture, Industry & Nature. Presentations will relate to an integrated global perspective for the responsible use of peatlands and the preservation of their unique dynamics and natural biodiversity.
The Congress will also provide for researchers, academics and practitioners an ideal platform to congregate, share information and discuss their scientific results and experiences with particular reference to peat and peatlands in the tropics.
There will be six Congress symposiums which will be chaired by renowned experts. In addition, we will also have a special session on soft soil engineering, growing media and the future of horticulture, publically managed peatland carbon storage, ecosystem services, and management, tropical peatland biodiversity and conservation in Borneo and Sumatra, peatland restoration, and asiaflux.
