15th International Peat Congress, 2016

15 - 19 Aug 2016, Pullman Kuching Malaysia, Sarawak, Malaysia.

This prestigious Quadrennial Convention will be hosted by the Malaysian Peat Society (MPS) in partnership with the International Peatland Society (IPS). It will be the first time in the Society’s long history of organising this Congress that it will convene at a location outside of Europe and North America and also in South East Asia.

The theme of the Congress is Peatlands in Harmony-Agriculture, Industry & Nature. Presentations will relate to an integrated global perspective for the responsible use of peatlands and the preservation of their unique dynamics and natural biodiversity.

The Congress will also provide for researchers, academics and practitioners an ideal platform to congregate, share information and discuss their scientific results and experiences with particular reference to peat and peatlands in the tropics.
