Centre for Earth Science Studies (CESS) is organising the 34th Institute of Indian Geographers’ Conference here from  December 13 to 15.

With the focal theme ‘Natural Resources Management and Decentralised Planning’, the  conference will be preceded by one-day symposium on December 12, to discuss  ‘Teaching and research in geography in India’.

Around 250 to 300 delegates comprising senior professors, lecturers, professional geographers and research scholars from  university departments, colleges and research institutes from all over India are expected to attend the conference.

The Institute of Indian Geographers is a premier national association of geographers having 737 life members. Every year, the conference is hosted by Geography departments and research organisations throughout the country. The 33rd conference was held at Tripura University, Agartala.

The national conference will provide a platform for the young researchers to present their research findings, exchange ideas with peer groups and interact with experts in the field.

The coming together of geographers from all over India will provide an impetus for geography education and research in the state, which is still at a nascent stage. In 1997, CESS organised the Indian Geography Congress under the aegis of National Association of Geographers, India (NAGI). Since then, Kerala had witnessed substantial development in geographical research and education.
