The Conference proposal in 2003

In the awake of the 21st century, conservation of estuaries and mangroves remain as a growing challenge for communities, environmental managers, and responsible entrepreneurs. In May 2000, in Recife (Brazil), the Mangrove 2000 Conference has promoted a lively debate on a number of issues related to the sustainability of those sensitive ecosystems, their challenges and prospects. In May 2003, there will be a good opportunity for revisiting the problem on a new environment –Salvador, Bahia --, under the auspices of both the Institute of Geosciences and the Institute of Biology of the University of Bahia.

The Mangrove 2003 Conference will seek to promote the necessary link between generation of knowledge and environmental management, in order to enhance local participation in solutions for socio-environmental problems.

Bahia has become a rapid growth industrial area in the last forty years and has pioneered oil exploration in Brazil. Salvador, by the Todos os Santos Bay, with its ethnic diversity and lively social life will be a perfect environment for discussing issues which are at the base of an harmonic relation between Nature and Society.
