1st FISHERMAN Regional Conference

Date & Time: From 2015-11-10
To 2015-11-11
Description of Conference

 

The Indian Ocean is the smallest, youngest and physically most complex of the three major oceans. Most of the water area of the Indian Ocean lies within the tropical and temperate zones, with a significant biodiversity and several upwelling zones important to commercially valuable marine species. Although great fisheries potential, some areas of this ocean are still insufficiently known.

The main aim of the 1st edition of the FISHERMAN Regional Conference is to bring together regional and international professionals involved and interested in the FISHERY Fishery sector, to exchange ideas and to promote an effective collaboration in the South-Western Indian Ocean.

The 1st African Symposium on Mycotoxicology (ASM)

Date & Time: From 2015-05-26
To 2015-05-28
Description of Conference

The University of Nairobi together with Stellenbosch University is organising the 1st African Symposium on Mycotoxicology to be held in Livingstone, Zambia in May 2015.

Mycotoxins are toxic compounds produced by fungi (molds) in food and feed. Once consumed, contaminated food and feed might be harmful to human and animal health. Acute aflatoxin poisoning has resulted in the death of more than 100 Kenyans in 2004, but it is the chronic poisoning with contaminated food that is most concerning. Over time such food causes cancer, immune suppression and birth defects. It also retards growth in children. Significant levels of mycotoxins have been found in grain crops and groundnuts in Africa, as well as in the blood and urine samples of people in rural communities.

In an effort to address the threat of mycotoxins to food production systems, health care and trade on the African continent, an African Mycotoxin network was established in 2011. The original objective was to connect scientists, academics and industry interested in mycotoxin research and collaboration. With a significant membership participating in web activities, we now plan to organize the 1st African Symposium on Mycotoxicology in May 2015. Visit http://www.asm2015.co.za/for more information.

Pan African Chemistry Network Sustainable Water Conference

Date & Time: From 2009-08-25
To 2009-08-28
Description of Conference

 

Africa is acutely sensitive to water issues. Several countries have lost as much as 25% of their water resources from their lakes and reservoirs. The state of the ground water is poorly mapped and the pattern of rainfall is changing due to climatic change. Above all, Africa has a rapidly growing population that needs water for food production and industrial uses.

The conference will therefore review critical water issues and will cover both theoretical and applied water knowledge. Sessions will include:

  • Water quality and contamination
  • Water usage for human consumption, industrial use, recreation and agriculture
  • Sustainable water management and treatment: recycling & use, desalination, treatment processes, infrastructure, planning & management and purification technology
  • Climate change and water
