CALL FOR PROPOSALS
APAC is the first ever continent-wide gathering of African leaders, citizens, and interest groups to discuss the role of protected areas in conserving nature, safeguarding Africa’s iconic wildlife, delivering vital life-supporting ecosystem services, promoting sustainable development and conserving Africa’s cultural heritage and traditions.
Africa is endowed with a rich and unique natural heritage, including a wide range of landscapes and seascapes, species and ecosystems, and many centres of species endemism. Countries in the region are largely dependent on biological resources for social and economic development
IUCN is a Union uniquely composed of both government and civil society organisations. It provides public, private and non-governmental organisations with the knowledge and tools that enable human progress, economic development and nature conservation to take place together.
