Planning is underway for ISSRM 2022. The conference theme is “Sustainable Development in Practice: Integrating People, Place, and Policy.” This conference will be hosted by the University of Costa Rica (UCR), Texas A&M University, and the University of Georgia and will take place at the UCR campus in San José, Costa Rica.

This will be the first ISSRM in Latin America and will provide opportunities to expand IASNR’s global network and to showcase the accomplishments of a country on the leading edge of socially responsible conservation and sustainable development.

An IASNR delegation visited San José in January to tour UCR’s impressive conference facilities and begin the process of logistics planning. Please contact Dr. David Matarrita-Cascante, Dr. Jesse Abrams, or Jessica Hill for more information.
