20th International Scientific & Industrial Forum «Great Rivers (ecological, hydrometeorological, energy safety)» / ICEF
The jubilee 20th International Scientific & Industrial Forum “GREAT RIVERS (ecological, hydrometeorological, energy safety)" / ICEF will be held on May 16-19, 2018 within the framework of the United Nations Decade of Sustainable Energy for All, Johannesburg Plan, XXI century Agenda. Forum-2016 will also consider provisions and detailed plans of actions on realization of the “Concept of National Security of the Russian Federation” approved by the President of Russian Federation, decisions of the 5th All Russia Congress on the surrounding environment protection.
KEY SUBJECT OF THE FORUM:
“Sustainable development of the regions in the basins of the great rivers”
assistance to sustainable development in greater river basins, provision for sustainable social and economic development of Russia, preservation of natural environment for contemporary and future generations, ecological, hydrometeorological and energy safety.
FORUM IS APRROVED BY:
The “Great Rivers” Forum is the only congress and exhibition event in Russia with the combination of the format and themes, that implements the ideas of the World Forum on global sustainable development issues “RIO-1992”.
Each year the Forum is becoming increasingly up-to-date. The importance of the environmental issues for the mankind has not decreased, but rather deteriorated during this period.
Scientists and specialists participating in the international scientific congresses of the Forum call it “ecological Davos”. They say that as the most important world economic problems are discussed at the World Economic Forum in Davos, so the most serious environmental and sustainable development tasks are discussed in Nizhny Novgorod.
The international audit of the Global Association of the exhibition industry and the Russian Union of exhibitions and fairs acknowledged the Forum the best regional event in the Russian Federation at the subject “Environmental protection” in all the nominations –
"international recognition", "professional interest", "market reach" and "exhibition space". The Forum had also been marked the “UFI approved event" by the Global Association of the exhibition industry.
