The conference aims were to:
Provide space for a diverse range of leading stakeholders (governmental and non-governmental) to voice their expert opinions, proposals, analysis and aspirations for the implementation of conservation projects in the face of climate change.
Understand how conservationists have engaged the youth in implementation of conservation projects.
Understand how much conservationists have used IT/social media in advancing the conservation agenda in the country
The insights and analysis presented in this conference provided a critical cornerstone for implementing conservation projects in the country especially in the era of climate change, youth participation and the immense opportunity that technology has presented us with through the use of social media to reach out to communities and people.
The conference brought together players and lead agencies in the conservation arena to define priority areas and made recommendations for future conservation and research priorities in Uganda.
