Whilst 2020 has been a challenging year for most, it has taught us that the adversity we face and the resilience we respond with has the power to shape our lives and the environment around us. This important lesson can also be applied to our goals for improved land and water management by focussing our efforts on stopping the spread of sediment from reaching and polluting our precious waterways and thereby shaping a better environment for everyone.

The IECA Conference Organising Committee would like to invite all soil and water professionals to join us in Coffs Harbour, NSW for the 2021 IECA Australasia Conference to be held at the Pacific Bay Resort from the 20th to the 22nd of October, 2021. This Conference will bring together scientists, engineers, professionals, practitioners, regulators, academics and students in a common forum to engage, collaborate, discuss and dive headfirst into finding solutions to effectively stop the spread of sediment to protect our valuable soil and water resources.

With so many established concepts and approaches for land and water management, this conference will explore the subtleties that exist within those approaches that can trip us up or mean the difference between success and failure. We’ll look at emerging technologies, established approaches, and will never discount embracing the old ways; what can we learn from past mistakes and how can we work smarter to manage our land and water resources?

This conference aims to celebrate our successes, explore new challenges; encourage better integration of soil and water management all while promoting the protection of our soil and water resources. The conference agenda will include keynote speakers, plenary sessions, open discussion forums, panel sessions, technical workshops, exhibitions and a comprehensive social program.

Join us for a fun, vibrant, thought-provoking event that will expand delegates’ thinking and knowledge while challenging them to investigate the realities of what we’ve done in the past, what we’re doing now, and what we might do into the future of land and water management. We look forward to seeing you in Coffs Harbour in October 2021!
