8th Global Nitrogen Conference 2020
Meetings of Interest

The 8th Global Nitrogen Conference will be hosted in Berlin, Germany from May 3-7, 2020. Since 1998, these international nitrogen conferences have been a unique platform to highlight nitrogen’s role as an essential resource and a major environmental threat. They provide a forum and catalyst for interdisciplinary nitrogen research, bringing together scientists from a range of disciplines – from atmospheric science to economics, plant biology to policy analysis. They have also been an important opportunity to engage with other important stakeholders, including civil society, national governments, international organizations and fertilizer companies among others.

The overarching theme of INI-2020 is the Sustainable Development Goals – the 17 UN-sanctioned targets for social, environmental and economic outcomes to be achieved by 2030 – with nitrogen central to 16 of them. How humanity manages its relationship with nitrogen over the coming decade will be critical in determining whether we meet these goals. Some, like ending hunger and poverty, will require better access to nitrogen. Others, like protecting life on land and water and climate action, will require reducing nitrogen pollution. All will benefit from better nitrogen management and more effective policies.
