ESP MENA Conference 2018

The first ESP conference in the MENA region will be held in Jordan 22-26  April 2018, organised in collaboration with GIZ and hosted by the Jordanian Min. of Environment. The conference theme will be “Enhancing ecosystem services through ecological restoration for nature and people”. Rapid land degradation, unsustainable land use and weak land use planning combined with increasing drought and severe climate change vulnerability are crucial issues that most MENA countries have in common. Understanding that ecosystem services are not lost forever once an area and/or landscape element are degraded heavily, but that restoration measures and rehabilitation programmes can also successfully revive ecosystem services is crucial.
