Kenya: challanges and opportunities for nature conservation
Wed, 12.1.2022, 18:30 - 20:00
Nature conservation in Kenya has transformed since the country’s independence in 1963. The advancement of the conservation and tourism sectors is evident from Kenya’s ranking as one of the top 10 tourist destinations in Africa and the global recognition of some of the country’s conservation efforts (e.g. action „burning of ivory“ 1989 & 2016). Despite the growth and success, Kenya has also experienced numerous setbacks in recent years which have affected the livelihoods of flora and fauna (humans included) and the country’s economic development. Two young Kenyan scholars will give a deep insight into these topics during this evening.
