“Management of Ecosystem Services for Nature Conservation and Human Wellbeing in Africa”
After the first ESP Africa Regional Conference took place in 2016 in Nairobi, Kenya, this year Togo is hosting the second Africa Regional Conference!
This conference is organized to draw attention to the key role ecosystems are playing in the development of the economy, human wellbeing and culture in (Sub-Saharan) Africa. Yet, in spite of all the benefits of ecosystem services (or Nature’s Contributions to People) the ecosystems providing them are facing many threats affecting the livelihoods and resilience of local communities.
Therefore, the theme of the conference is ‘Management of Ecosystem Services for Nature Conservation and Human Wellbeing in Africa’. The conference welcomes everyone with an interest in the conservation, restoration and sustainable management of ‘Nature’s Contributions to People’ in Africa and its association with human wellbeing.
