LEGATO conference is seeking answers through science
Date:6/25/2012

The international project LEGATO (Land-use intensity and Ecological Engineering Assessment Tools for risks and Opportunities in irrigated rice based production systems) is organizing a conference, entitled "Regionalisation of Rice Ecosystem Services and Ecological Engineering" which will be held in Banaue, The Philippines from 1 to 7 July.

LEGATO unites 21 research institutions from Germany, Vietnam, The Philippines, UK, Bulgaria and Spain and aims to advance long-term sustainable development of irrigated rice fields, against risks arising from multiple aspects of global change. The project is funded by the BMBF (German Federal Ministry of Education and Research) research program "Sustainable Land Management" and runs from March 2011 to February 2016.

The meeting will focus on the results achieved by the LEGATO research teams in the first 18 months of the project's existence, as well as on planning of future activities. The conference will open with addresses by leading representatives of local and regional authorities and by the project leader Dr. Josef Settele from the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ). The agenda of the meeting includes various research topics, such as progress reporting on the economic situation in the LEGATO experimental sites (by Dr. Joachim Spangenberg), preliminary results from the field observations on cultural aesthetics (Dr. Vera Tekken), biocontrol and pollination (Dr. KL Heong and Dr. Stefan Vidal) and nutrients and production (Prof. Reinhold Jahn) and many more. A trip to Banga'an, a UNESCO world heritage site and LEGATO research site is part of the conference agenda.
