African Biodiversity Network (ABN) biennial partners meeting
02 September 2013 - 08 September 2013, Kenya
The African Biodiversity Network held its 2013 biennial meeting in Nanyuki, Kenya.
Biowatch joined 28 participants from the different ABN partner organisations for the inspiring meeting and celebration of 10 years of ABN.
ABN is a regional network of individuals and organisations seeking African solutions to the ecological and socio-economic challenges that face the continent. The ABN was first conceived in 1996 in response to growing concern in the region over threats to biodiversity in Africa and the need to develop strong African positions and legal instruments at the national, regional and international level. Currently, ABN has 36 partners drawn from 12 African countries: Benin, Botswana, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, South Africa, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Together, the African Biodiversity Network is finding innovative and pioneering pathways and solutions to the challenges which face the continent.
