October 2021 Newsletter

Message From The African Protected Areas Congress Steering Committee

Welcome to the first edition of the Africa Protected Areas Congress (APAC) newsletter. As we begin our journey to the first Africa-wide congress, we would like to extend our gratitude to you for walking with us this far.

You are receiving this newsletter because you are one of the numerous and invaluable APAC partners who are passionate about conservation and are willing to see national and regional commitments turn into measurable impacts that works for Africa and Africans.

Africa is home to a third of the world’s biodiversity. Sadly, there is a steep decline due to pressures including physical infrastructure development, extractive activities, population growth, agricultural development, human wildlife conflict, land conversion and degradation, and poaching. In addition, the world is grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic for over two years and this has accelerated the need for practical and sustainable solutions embedded in our conservation plans, policies and actions.
