The Second International Conference on Climate, Sustainability and Sustainable Development in semi-arid regions (ICID 2010) will be held from 16-20 August 2010, at the Convention Center of Ceará in Fortaleza in Brazil. The conference will bring together governments, civil society and experts to assess and articulate the needs and opportunities of the semi-arid regions of the world. Organized around four themes, ICID 2010 will generate, consolidate and synthesize the knowledge of climate change, vulnerability, impacts, adaptive responses of society and sustainable development in arid and semi-arid lands, translating this knowledge into effective public policy recommendations and agendas for research directed in support of improved policy making and implementation. The UK Department for International Development (DFID) is keen to encourage participation in ICID 2010 from researchers and policy makers from Southern, Eastern and Western Africa.
