The congress, NaijaAgroNet gathered is to chart the way forward for a new funding model for Africa’s protected areas.

NaijaAgroNet also gathered that the African Protected Areas Congress (APAC) will be held between March 7-12, under the aegis of the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

Equally gathered by 
NaijaAgroNet is that the congress will be one of the first large in-person gatherings to be held on the continent post-COVID-19.
