A 3 year study on incorporating biodiversity into land-use planning using spatial prioritization and scenario analysis: four case studies from Africa
September 4 - 6, 2018
Hotel Radisson Blu
Libreville, Gabon
 
The Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group (ABCG), a United States Agency for International Development funded initiative, will be holding a workshop
to exchange ideas and methodologies for incorporating biodiversity into land-use planning in Africa.  
 
Over the past 3 years this collaboration between 7 of the largest conservation NGO's in Africa has explored steps and methodologies on how to incorporate biodiversity into land-use planning using spatial prioritization and scenario analysis based on primary four case studies. These countries include Republic of Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania, and Madagascar. They have also been reviewing work on land-use planning in Gabon.

The Gabonese government will make presentations on September 5, 2018. Members of the ABCG Land Use Management task group will present results from four case studies on using prioritization and scenario tools to inform land-use planning strategies in Republic of Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania, and Madagascar.

The latter part of the workshop will include a discussion of how technical tools and policy regulations from African governments can be involved to improve Land Use Management practices.
