Who Should Attend
conference is designed to bring together academic and
non-academic researchers and professionals (national and
international agencies, NGO and private sector) and students
interested in conservation and development issues in Africa
and Latin America.
Conservation and Development (TCD) program, host of the
conference in conjunction with the Center for Latin American
Studies and the Center for African Studies, strongly
encourages the participation of its extensive network of
alumni and collaborating partners in Latin America and
Africa. Since its beginnings in the 1980s, the TCD program
has trained approximately 350 alumni from 34 countries plus
the U.S. Over
90% of the non-U.S. alumni came from
developing countries in Latin America and Africa.
provides an excellent opportunity to reconnect the UF
community of scholars and practitioners as well as foster
cross-regional networking opportunities to advance
conservation and development in Latin America and Africa.
