The 3rd Regional Conference on Natural Resources in the TROPICS (NRTrop3_2009)
Theme: Harnessing Tropical Natural Resources Through Innovations and Technologies
Natural resources need to be exploited and utilised in a sustainable way. The growing population of Malaysia, coupled with increased demands for raw materials from industries, have a deep impact on the country’s natural resources and heritage. A deep understanding as well as prudent utilisation and management strategies are of utmost importance in striking a balance between exploitation and conservation of the nation’s natural resources. The country therefore needs to train scientists capable of utilising the latest technology and techniques towards fulfilling this objective.
