WCCA is a global congress focused on practical conservation applications and techniques that will help conserve soil, water and other natural resources, as well as provide economic returns. The congress takes place every three years and will be held next in Rosario, Argentina, in 2017.

The 6th WCCA was hosted by the Conservation Agriculture Systems Alliance, a network of conservation agriculture organizations across North America, with the Conservation Technology Information Center (CTIC) and Soil Conservation Council of Canada (SCCC) taking the lead for WCCA.
