Recent environmental technology foresight explicitly means to re-align technology development with the long term goal of achieving sustainable development, after fully understanding the forces shaping the long term future which should be taken into account in policy formulation, planning and decision making. So the theme of the conference is "Foresighting Future Scenarios in Environmental and Resource Management". The conference still continue to uphold the mission of preceding conferences to emphasize the challenges facing the growing environmental problems in the absence of developing policy strategy for stimulating those technological systems that might radically increase the environmental efficiency of products, processes, and services.
