YOU ARE INVITED TO JOIN US AT THE BIENNIAL CONFERENCE OF THE SOUTHERN AFRICAN ASSOCIATION OF GEOMORPHOLOGY (SAAG) AND ASSOCIATED WORKSHOPS

Rationale and Purpose of the Conference and the associated Workshops

Stemming from discussions at the previous conference at Sani Pass, South Africa, we are pleased to announce that this conference and its associated workshops will be held in Swaziland, in association with the University of Swaziland. This conference seeks to create a forum to explore the contexts of theory and application in Geomorphology and the related fields.

Given the extent of soil erosion and land degradation in the Southern African region, and recognising the involvement of geomorphologists in topics related to these, we are particularly pleased to confirm that both the International Vetiver Network (TVNI) and the Soil Erosion Focus Group of the Land Rehabilitation Society of Southern Africa (SEFG-LaRSSA) will be holding relevant workshops during this conference. We are confident that this will enhance the international status of the meeting, and broaden the base for discussion and meaningful interaction. We look forward to being able to welcome delegates to the Kingdom of Swaziland.

A pre-conference and main excursion to places of interest will also be offered.
