ICEMT 2011

The Second International Conference on
Environmental Management & Technologies

21-24 November, 2011
Amman, Jordan

Organized by:
The Center of Excellence for Environmental Studies, Jordan
in Collaboration with
Curtin University, Australia
Imperial College London, UK

The challenge of creating and maintaining a sustainable environment is one of the most pressing issues facing the world today. Increasing energy consumption, finite energy supplies, inappropriate production methods, environmental pollution, water scarcities, soil degradation, declining land productivity and dwindling resources are resulting in major environmental crises in many parts of the world. These critical global challenges have led to an increasing demand to mitigate environmental issues and move towards sustainability.

The International Conference on Environmental Management Technologies 2011 (ICEMT 2011) will bring together an international and interdisciplinary audience to address many of the issues connected with environmental management including waste management, environmental pollution and control, natural resource management and environmental policy, auditing and risk assessment. Environmental management in the Arab world is of particular interest where urban areas are undergoing one of the fastest rates of development and this rapid, often erratic, and sometimes traumatic growth has not occurred without unwanted consequences on the environment.

The conference welcomes papers that discuss the latest developments in environmental management research and application. The aim of the conference is to present results of research and innovated technologies related to environmental problems which pose a threat to the environment and the quality of life on earth. The ICEMT 2011 provides a forum for scholars, researchers, academicians and practitioners to examine and discuss solution-oriented methods for environmental management and engineering; to share and exchange experiences and research findings; to stimulate more ideas and useful insights regarding current best-practices and future directions in environmental management and the legal, social, and political components related to it; and to debate their views on future research and developments.
