The first Conference of the Regional Africa chapter of the Ecosystem Services Partnership will be held in Nairobi, Kenya on November 21-25 2016.
The conference theme will be Ecosystem Services for SDGs in Africa and discussions will focus on Africa’s contribution towards evidence on best practices for management and restoration of ecosystem services for decision making particularly towards the realization of sustainable development goals.
The conference registration has opened. Early Bird fee applies until 15 September 2016.
Moreover, due to the holiday season, we decided to extend the abstract submission deadline to 2 September 2016. Please make sure to submit your abstract through the online abstract submission system.
Accommodation should be arranged by yourself. The InterContinental Nairobi venue offers special rates for conference participants.
We hope the conference will accelerate collaboration in Africa on the science, policy and practice of the Ecosystem Services concept and initiate a strong Africa Ecosystem Services Network.
Please let us know if you would like to participate in the conference and feel free to share this notice with your partners in the region.
We look forward to your feedback.
