The purpose of this year’s iSEE Congress is to assemble leading national and international scientists from different disciplines to advance scientific understanding about state-of-the-art knowledge on the impacts of climate change on the agricultural sector, on ecosystem services, and on human livelihoods and wellbeing, particularly among the most vulnerable in society.

The Congress kicks off on the evening of Sept. 18 with a keynote from John Holdren, Former Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. The following two days are packed with presentations from local and world scholars diagnosing our future in a new climate and strategies for mitigating and adapting to the planet-wide warming trend.
