CONFERENCE 2022 : ECOSYSTEMS RESTORATION – LET’S GET TOGETHER
ECOSYSTEMS RESTORATION – LET’S GET TOGETHER
Our environment is being undermined by our human actions. To address this, on April 22, 1970, U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson encouraged students to start environmental awareness projects in their communities. Since then, every year on April 22, Earth Day is celebrated around the world. Despite these celebrations and many annual meetings, our ecosystems continue to degrade at an unprecedented rate. This is exacerbated by climate change with its impacts all over the world and the level of amplification is highest in rural and even urban areas of Africa.
In order to contribute to this global effort to recover the initial state of our ecosystems, IFED is organizing this conference a day after Earth Day in order to sensitize our society for a true partnership so that much more committed actions are taken to effectively allow the restoration of ecosystems.
