NVAS Africa day 2018 in Zeist: Responding to climate change in Africa

Poster NVAS Africa dayThis Africa day is organized by the Netherlands Association of African Studies NVAS.

Climate change is a theme that urgently needs to be addressed. The consequences of climate change are experienced worldwide, but especially also on the African continent. This is why the Netherlands Association for African Studies (NVAS) organizes the NVAS Africaday 2018 entitled ‘Responding to Climate Change in Africa’. In cooperation with the World Wildlife Fund we look forward to hosting you at WWF Netherlands’ climate-neutral head office in Zeist.

The Afrikadag 2018 will be a special and inspiring day. We will have two smashing key note lectures by Bart Geenen (WWF) on Fresh Water, and Professor Marja Spierenburg (Radboud University) on Nature Conservation. We also organize four panel sessions that will zoom in on the following themes: nature conservation, rural livelihoods and communities; (technological adaptation and) climate change; urban sustainability and migration. These lectures and panel sessions are in English. During the entire Africaday there will also be ample opportunities for informal discussions, a visit to the information market and taking part in workshops.

Please feel free to come, learn and share your knowledge on the NVAS Afrikadag 2018. Order tickets for the NVAS Africa Day.

Speakers are invited to contribute based on their own research and/or involvement in Africa. You can submit your abstract until September 1st. Read the Call for presentations.
