Message by the Executive Director
In the beginning of March 2017, HoA-REC&N hosted and co-organized the African Landscapes Dialogue (ALD), which brought together more than 130 participants from various regions of the world. The dialogue aimed at sharing knowledge and information about integrated landscape management, while seeking to advance the implementation of the African Landscapes Action Plan. It was a great pleasure for HoA-REC&N to host and co-organize such an important event.
The ALD was particularly important for HoA-REC&N for two reasons. HoA-REC&N promotes cooperation and networking among non-governmental organizations, community based organizations, research institutions, and universities. HoA-REC&N aims to facilitate experience exchanges between countries in the Horn of Africa and make use of the underutilized environmental knowledge in the region. Therefore, the dialogue would enable HoA-REC&N to better coordinate efforts and build synergies with regional and multi-country initiatives.
African Landscapes Dialogue: The Art of Improving Africa’s future
Why are many development projects in Africa disjointed and lacking the vision of being part of a bigger system? This was a question that lingered in the minds of more than 130 community leaders, policymakers, researchers, and farmers that took part in the African Landscape Dialogue (ALD) from 7th to 10th March 2017 at the HoA-REC&N Headquarters in Addis Ababa. All participants had a common interest: to realize integrated landscape management in Africa.
