Prestigious environmental conference comes down under

The EnviroAnalysis 2007 Conference is a milestone. It’s the first time the conference is being held in the Southern Hemisphere, and it will take place in Wellington, New Zealand, 7 – 9 February.

EnviroAnalysis 2007 will provide a unique opportunity for scientists from around the globe to get together and better understand the impacts of our activities on the environment - and the subsequent risks to human and animal health.

“Our natural environment continues to be increasingly impacted by human activity. The health of our air, water, soil, ecosystems, constructed areas and food - and therefore human health - is dependent on the quality of our environment”, says Malcolm Linn, CEO (Acting) of AgriQuality Limited.

Experts from Australasia, Europe and North America will attend the Conference, which is being hosted by AgriQuality. They will consider the challenges faced in gathering the data required to answer the questions that need to be asked in order to develop effective strategy, policy and legislation.

Mr Linn explains, ”Few issues now dominate the public consciousness like environmental and human health. Reliable and useful scientific analysis is vital for our understanding of status, impact and effect - be this in the natural environment, or our built, work and recreational environments.”

The Conference provides a forum for scientists, industry, consultants, regulators and legislators to discuss the latest advances in environmental analyses and how they will impact on our understanding. In particular, it will focus on new and emerging issues, testing technologies and methods, and occupational health and regulatory issues.
