In 1978, IIASA initiated a task on "Environmental Problems of Agriculture", a joint effort between the Food and Agriculture Program and the Resources and Environment Area. As one line of the task's activity, a conference on "Environmental Management of Agricultural Watersheds" was organized jointly by IIASA and the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences. It was held in Smolenice, CSSR from 23-27 April, 1979.

A quarter of the world's surface is utilized for agriculture, therefore it is a major factor of man-made changes in the environment. Many of these changes have a strong feedback on agricultural production, while others influence the environment outside the agro-ecosystems. The objective of the conference was to exchange experiences in the active management of such changes. This short outline summarizes the principal findings presented at the Conference. The proceedings of the conference are in preparation and will follow shortly.
