Environmental & Economic Impact on Sustainable Development, June 8-10, 2016

The 3rd International Conference on Environmental and Economic Impact on Sustainable Development will take place on June 8-10, 2016 in Valencia, Spain. It follows the success of the two previous meetings held in the New Forest, UK, home of the Wessex Institute in 2012, and Ancona, Italy in 2014.

The meeting will provide an international forum to discuss the most serious problems affecting sustainable development. The Conference will consider the impact of economic constraints on the environment, taking into account the social aspects as well as the over-use of natural resources. Uncontrolled development can also result in damage to the environment in terms of the release of toxic substances and hazardous waste. The meeting will examine issues related to whether some forms of development are compatible with environmental protection, particularly in cases of possible serious contamination and toxicity.

The conference will address problems of great importance discussing more constructive and progressive approaches to ensure sustainability. A major motivation for the meeting is to learn from past failure, to avoid repeating similar mistakes, while attempting to prevent emerging threats to the environmental and ecological systems.

Fundamental to these concepts are the analysis of the inherent risk and the development of appropriate strategies.
