Announcement on change of venue

12th CASEE Conference: "Sustainable agriculture in the context of climate change and digitalization"

Dear colleagues,

CASEE Board has decided to change the venue of the 12th CASEE conference from Chisinau (Moldova) to Prague (Czechia) for security-related reasons. We hope that this last-minute change will be accepted by conference participants, authors, students and other staff, as it is in line with the requests of many of you.

We sincerely hope that CASEE Conference 2023 will be hosted by the State Agrarian University of Moldova and we will all meet there next year in peace.

In 2022 the venue of the conference will be Czech University of Life Sciences Prague. Although the organising team has only limited time to prepare the whole event, we believe that you will hardly notice when being in Prague.

CASEE Conference Scientific Sessions

 

  • Sustainable agriculture and forestry
  • Current issues of the agricultural economy, rural development and landscape planning
  • Global trends and challenges in animal husbandry and veterinary medicine
  • Climate-smart agriculture and food security
  • Digital agriculture and engineering
  • Environment in the context of climate change

Sustainable agriculture and forestry

 

The aim of sustainable agriculture is to supply sufficient food, feed, biomass and other raw-materials while safeguarding natural resources, such as water, soil and biodiversity, without compromising the ability of current or future generations to meet their needs. The trends of sustainable agriculture are oriented toward increasing the quality and value of agricultural products by delivering more sustainable and productive agriculture, including animal husbandry and forestry systems, which are diverse, resilient and resource-efficient.  The trends of forestry are focused on the further development of production and sustainability of resource-efficient forestry systems, which are instrumental in the strengthening of forest resilience and biodiversity protection and which can meet increased biomass demand.

 

Current issues of the agricultural economy, rural development and landscape planning

Agriculturaleconomics covers a wide range of issues like applied areas, having considerable overlap withconventional economics. It covers a wide range of matters concerning development, trade, macroeconomic policy implications,agribusinessproductionandconsumption, all the way to environmental and resource issues. The principles and methods of landscape planning need to be considered in the context of the environmental aspects of the national policy and national planning. The idea of environmentally sustainable development is a powerful factor currently determining strategic trends in approaches to the policy. Nature and environmental protection are viewed alongside economics as equally important goals.

 

Global trends and challenges in animal husbandry and veterinary medicine

Global trends in animal husbandry are oriented to address a challenge due to the necessity to produce larger quantities of high quality and affordable animal products in response to an increasing global demand while making that production systems sustainable from environmental, social and economic points of view.  The challenges in animal husbandry are oriented to foster innovation adoption, to consolidation strategies, increasing productivity efficiencies, a fair distribution of profits along the food chain, economies of scale, which are focused on producing high quality, value-added products. Veterinary medicine is oriented to produce new drugs or vaccines and analysing thetissue cultureto improveagricultural productivity, quality, diversity and species protection.

 

Climate-smart agriculture and food security

   Climate-smart agriculture is an approach that involves increasing agricultural productivity by transforming and managing landscapes and agricultural systems to ensure food security keeping climate change in mind. The key objectives of Climate smart agriculture are sustainably improving agricultural productivity, building flexibility toclimate change, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, wherever possible. The Climate Smart Agriculture approach simultaneously addresses food security and climate change while contributing to mitigating greenhouse gas emissions.

 

Digital agriculture and engineering

The current agriculture has converged with technologies such as information technology, biotechnology and environmental technology. It mainly focuses on areas such as cost reduction during production level, reduction in labour burden, high quality and organic production, and quality management in facilities. Digital agriculture and e engineering refer to the use of innovative agricultural technologies to collect, save, examine, and share electronic information along the agricultural value chain. It is also referred to as smart farming or e-agriculture. New technologies can provide the agricultural industry with ideas and a basis to make more informed decisions and improve crop productivity. Digital technologies provide farmers with the information and ability to meet these challenges and grab prospects for growth.

 

Environment in the context of climate change

Climate change affects all regions around the world. Climate change is human-induced, observed and projected long-term changes in climate averages, as well as climate variability, including anomalies such as droughts, severe storms and floods. Climate change is a development issue. In view of the possible impact of this phenomenon on many aspects of human life today, it is probably one of the important development issues. Adaptation involves taking action on the effects of climate change. This includes improving education, awareness and training on the impacts of climate change, as well as taking real steps such as planting drought-resistant plants and strengthening the protection.
