Humans are turning resources into waste faster than nature can turn waste
back into resources. New calculations suggest we are using 25 per cent
more resources than are renewed naturally in a year. If the present trend
continues, the likelihood of large scale ecosystem collapse by 2050 is a
distinct possibility causing further habitat destruction threatening both bio-
diversity and human well being.
The conference envisages inter-disciplinary approaches for the sustainable
utilization of natural resources. The wide scope of this conference will
provide excellent opportunity to the young researchers to interact and
discuss with distinguished scientists from across the nation. We will have
the opportunity to exchange knowledge and perspectives for the
common goal of promoting technologies for protection, conservation,
restoration and sustainable utilization of our natural resources.
1. Non-Renewable & renewable natural resources
