Community-led Wildlife Conservation and Climate Change Justice Across Africa

As world leaders, environmental activists, and climate scientists gather in Glasgow for the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) over the first weeks of November, the Society for International Development Washington (SID-W) will host a virtual panel discussion the following week among dynamic women leaders in conservation and showcase how they advocate for climate change justice through community-led wildlife conservation across Africa.

Africa is the most vulnerable continent to the negative impact of climate change despite having the world’s lowest emissions. While cutting global carbon emissions remains the absolute top priority for climate activists and the international community, a vast number of solutions are already proving instrumental in the face of cascading threats, including protecting the forests, habitats, carbon sinks, and ecosystems where both biodiversity and human societies should thrive together.

Through a panel discussion, we will hear from leaders in community-led wildlife conservation, habitat protection, and adaptation and resilience-building among African communities.

Registration for this event is now closed.
