Global Change and Terrestrial-Aquatic Connections
Global Change and Terrestrial-Aquatic Connections
Dear colleagues and friends,
After the survey with the PLPF-9 delegates,
The focal theme of the congress is Global Change and Terrestrial-Aquatic Connections aiming to encourage discussions on global challenges related to environmental degradation, climate, biodiversity loss, clean and accessible water for all within the Sustainable Development Goals.
The meeting will be held at the historical city of Braga with a beautiful city center. Braga is half an hour from the Peneda-Gerês National Park, half an hour from the Atlantic coast, and next to the Bom Jesus de Braga, classified as World Heritage site by UNESCO.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to this exciting event.
On behalf of the organizing committee,
Fernanda Cássio and Cláudia Pascoal
