Conservation challenges in Eastern and Southern Africa

A lack of technical know-how and limited funding are some of the problems faced by IUCN and its members in Eastern and Southern Africa, where work is continuing to focus on the region's drylands, forests, inland waterways, coastal and marine environments. Hastings Chikoko, Head of IUCN South Africa and Head of Constituency Support and Communications for Eastern and Southern Africa, has been attending talks in Nairobi which will affect the Convention on Biological Diversity. He says that getting across the message that conservation and development can work alongside each other is key to work in the region.
