This year’s gathering follows other series of international conferences on environment, energy and development hosted by UNILAK in the last three years.
The fourth ICEED focuses on “responsible research in creating a unified foundation for the sustainable development”
According to organisers, ICEED 2017 is inspired by the critical challenges of human, environment and economic sustainability concerning the present and future generations in a global scale context.
Dozens of scheduled speakers are expected to share and identify practical evidence-based solutions that can support the sustainability agenda.
The gathering is anticipated to create an active network of researchers and stakeholders with interests and concerns for sustainability in a holistic perspective, with environment, cultural, economic and social concerns.
Around a hundred papers were submitted, but a few were selected and will be published in the conference proceedings. They are also eligible for free publications in the East African Journal of Science and Technology.
