International E-Conference Sustainable livelihoods: Water, Climate Change and Geo-Spatial Development

About the Conference
In the twenty-first century, livelihoods will be required by two or three
times the current human population. People, their capacities, and their
means of subsistence, such as food, income, and possessions, make up a
livelihood. Resources and stores are tangible assets, whereas claims and
access are intangible assets. A livelihood is ecologically sustainable if it
preserves or improves the local and global assets that livelihoods rely on, as
well as having net positive impacts on other livelihoods. A socially
sustainable livelihood is one that can cope with and recover from stress and
shocks while also providing for future generations.
New conceptions and analyses are required for policy and practice. Future
generations will outnumber us by a large margin, yet they will be
unrepresented in our decision-making. Current and traditional analyses are
both gloomy and undervalue future lifestyles. Small-scale economic synergy,
as well as boosting resource-use intensity and the diversity and complexity
of small-farming livelihood systems, can be used to increase livelihoods. The
ideas of net sustainable livelihood impacts and intensity need to be tested.
They include balancing issues like environmental and social sustainability,
as well as net impacts from competition and externalities.
The goal of sustainable livelihoods for everyone offers a focal point for
thinking about the twenty-first century and identifies policy and research
objectives. Personal environmental balance sheets for the better off and the
poorest, policies and measures to build capacities, promote fairness, and
raise social sustainability are all policy implications. Besides that, globally,
concerns for the environment and human well-being have increased as a
result of threats imposed by climate change and disasters, environmental
degradation, pollution of natural resources, water scarcity and proliferation
of slums. Finding appropriate solutions to these threats and challenges is not
simple, as these are generally complex and require state-of-the-art
technology to collect, measure, handle and analyse large volumes of varying
data sets. However, the recent advances in sensor technology, coupled with
the rapid development of computational power, have greatly enhanced our
abilities to capture, store and analyse the surrounding physical
Therefore, the conference is planned to provoke discussions by exploring
and elaborating the concept of Sustainability, and it’s symbiotic
relationship with existing water resources and surrounding climate and
geo-spatial development.
