The 9th International Convention on Environment and Development will be held in Havana, Cuba on July 8-12, 2013, under the slogan “urge a major change for the future we want”. The convention, which is aimed at researchers, decision-makers, teachers, specialists, managers, entrepreneurs, and the general public, started in 1997, five years after the landmark United Nations “Conference on Environment and Development” (UNCED), informally known as the Earth Summit.

The ninth staging of the gathering comes a year after the staging of the momentous Rio+20 Summit. Its main objective is to promote integration, implementation, and coherence between what must be done and what was identified for action at recent international conventions and summits.

The Convention is organized in groups for congresses and colloquiums, covering many current environmental contents. There will be 6 congresses on Climate Change, Environmental Education, Protected Areas; Environmental Management, Management of Ecosystems and Biodiversity, and Law and Environmental Justice, and four colloquiums on Environmental management, Sustainable Land Management, Environmental Regulation, and Transport and Environment.

In addition, renowned national and international experts will give lectures and roundtable discussions on priority environmental issues. An exhibition fair associated with technologies, environmental projects and experiences will be also held. Independent professional contributions are also strongly encouraged.
