Developing a Blueprint for Global Phosphorus Security
29th February - 2nd March, 2012
Thank you to all that attended the 3rd Sustainable Phosphorus Summit, hosted by the Institute for Sustainable Futures, University of Technology, Sydney - a founding member of the Global Phosphorus Research Initiative.
The Summit brought together key international science, policy and industry stakeholders from different parts of the food production and consumption chain concerned about the role of phosphorus availability and accessibility in global food security, about protecting the environment, and about supporting rural and urban livelihoods. Themes included:
Sustainable food systems
Global phosphate rock production and reserves
Phosphorus use efficiency in mining, agriculture, food processing
Phosphorus recovery and reuse
Phosphorus pollution and waste
Sustainable phosphorus strategies and global governance
The format of the Summit ensured a high level of interactivity, multi-stakeholder participation, creativity and was outcomes-oriented.
We look forward to seeing you in France in 2014!
