Purpose of the Meeting

The purpose of this conference is to bring together conservation and development experiences from Africa and Latin America to discuss and compare emerging trends, and stories of success and failure. These exchanges will not only facilitate mutual learning among the participants, but also serve as a foundation to strengthen collaboration between the regions, and the definition of long-lasting solutions to advance conservation and economic development in its multiple dimensions.

Oral sessions have been organized around three primary topics: changing contexts, changing strategies, and training and capacity building. Each session will include invited papers, selected by the session moderator in consultation with the steering committee, and discussion. In addition to the oral sessions, there will be a poster session open to submissions on any aspect related to the conference topics. Submissions based on scientific research as well as practitioner experience are encouraged.
