8th International Symposium on Gully Erosion

The 8th International Symposium on Gully Erosion will be held in Townsville, Australia on 21-27 July 2019.

Gully erosion is recognized around the globe as a major source of sediment to stream systems, and a significant natural hazard that can be accelerated by climate change, extreme climate events, and human land-use activities that lead to land degradation.

The ISGE conference series brings together established and emerging researchers to share and discuss recent insights into:

  • Gully erosion causes, characteristics, behaviour and processes
  • Experimental and measurement techniques
  • Modelling and prediction
  • Management and rehabilitation
  • Social and economic effects

This will be the first ISGE in the southern hemisphere – come on down under! Townsville is Australia’s largest tropical city and adjacent to the Great Barrier Reef.

The training will focus on concepts such as –

  • The science of human behaviour
  • How to understand farmers’ motivations and barriers to adoption
  • How to engage with a broader farmer base
  • Techniques for communicating more effectively with farmers
  • Strategies for managing resistance
  • Techniques for measuring and validating your effectiveness as an extension professional

We’ve set a maximum of 12 people to ensure the session remains interactive and well paced throughout the day. The event will be fully catered.

As part of our training, we like to provide our attendees with pre and post support. We’d love to get in contact with you before the workshop to get to know you and your experience working in extension to ensure we tailor our content as much as possible to the people in the room. As a follow-up to the workshop, we’ll check-in to see how you’re going with applying learnings in the field.
