On behalf of the international scientific committee and local organizing committee, it is a pleasure to announce that the 6th Sustainable Phosphorus Summit (SPS 2018) will be held in Brasília, Brazil, from 20 - 22 August, 2018.
SPS 2018 is the 6th of a recent and successful series of summits which launched in 2010 in Linköping, Sweden. The subsequent summits took place in Tempe, USA in 2011; Sydney, Australia in 2012; Montpellier, France in 2014 and Kunming, China in 2016.
The summit’s dynamic and multidisciplinary format seeks to bring together scientists, policy makers and other industry stakeholders. The summit’s intention is to raise awareness and to better understand the role phosphorus plays in food safety and agriculture, in order to use it efficiently, and to protect the environment while at the same time supporting rural and urban livelihoods.
For the first time, the summit will be held in Latin America, where phosphorus sustainability is a major concern. While significant progress on phosphorus sustainability has been made in Europe and North America, SPS 2018 will also shine a light on regional challenges and opportunities in Latin America, Africa, Asia and the Pacific.
We hope to see you there!
