The Sustainable Phosphorus Alliance convened our second Phosphorus Forum event on February 27, 2018, in warm and sunny Tempe, Arizona. A network of organizations from across the phosphorus value chain gathered to explore holistic solutions to vexing phosphorus sustainability issues. Keynote speakers included Drs. Sally Rockey, Executive Director of the Foundation for Food and Agricultural Research, and Paul Fixen, retired Senior Vice President of the International Plant Nutrition Institute.

Below are links to PDFs of the slide decks used during the presentations at the Phosphorus Forum 2018 event.

Webinar Series

#

Recent weather events around the globe–from intense hurricanes in the US to massive flooding in Asia–conform to the predictions of climate change models. If extreme weather continues to be the new normal, how will an intensification of storms affect phosphorus flows through the environment and how can we prepare for the increased phosphorus loads? Panelists Dr. Phil Haygarth, Professor in the Lancaster Environment Centre of Lancaster University, and Dr. Laura Johnson, Director of the National Center for Water Quality Research at Heidelberg University, joined us for a discussion of how climate change is impacting and will continue to change phosphorus flows, and what cities and farms will need to do to protect against increased phosphorus pollution of our waterways.
