Shifting Lines - SCGIS 2014 annual conference

All around us boundaries are shifting – due to climate change, human-wildlife conflict, habitat fragmentation, invasive species, on and on. Legal lines shift as laws change, supporting environment protection one day and degradation the next. Geographic lines shift as countries are formed, security walls rend the landscape, disputes over water intensify, and refugees flee armed conflict. Even financial lines - charitable donations and grants, overhead costs and bottom lines - are moving targets for all types of organizations, from large consulting firms to NGOs to small budget not-for-profits. Our conference will explore the theme of these shifting lines and how they affect all of us, our partners, constituents and the environment around us.
