Event date:

Event venue:

Event description: 

A significant proportion of livelihoods in tropical regions particularly in Sub Saharan Africa (SSA) are heavily ecosystem dependent. Equally, the development strategies of the regional economies are premised on harnessing ecosystem and environmental resources to sustain the economic growth and increasing food, fibre and energy demands for the populations.

Whilst the national economies show rapid growth, there is increasing concern on declining ecosystem health, and agricultural productivity given the rapidly increasing population.

This conference aims to cultivate the emerging knowledge crucial for solving the complex and interconnected issues of ecosystem resilience, increasing agricultural productivity and sustaining livelihoods under climate change
