Is Africa being heard? Hunting, Conservation and Livelihoods

12. April 20222 Minutes

26 APRIL 2022 – 16:00-18:00 CET
Stanhope Hotel – Rue du Commerce 9, 1000 Brussels

The goal of the event is to bring together European and African decision-makers, with stakeholders from across the spectrum, to understand the leadership of African countries in the management and conservation of their wildlife and the role that local communities play.

The panel will consist of a broad range of stakeholders, representing different views on the subject, in particular African representatives, European Commission, NGOs and scientists.

The event will discuss key African conservation approaches including sustainable use for which hunting is an important activity. The voices of local communities will be represented, which are at the forefront of preventing poaching and enhancing community and incentive-based conservation.

The purpose of the conference is to help attendees and their agencies and organisations understand:

  • The ways in which African communities lead and must be allowed to lead;
  • How the EU and the rest of the world can assist African governments and local communities in that leadership;
  • Strategies to avoid that could interfere and harm African countries’ efforts;
  • The lessons that we can learn from Africa.
