Conserving Our Global Freshwater Future in Africa

November 9, 2016

An unprecedented transformation is underway in African watersheds. We have a fleeting opportunity to deliver proactive solutions that enable leaders to make wise choices and show the world a better, more balanced way to grow. To do this, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is focused on large freshwater systems with global ecological importance, where enabling political and social conditions for conservation exist, and where there is potential for high return on conservation investment.

Please RSVP or direct all questions to Cyrille Barnerias at cbarnerias@thegef.org.
