The South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) is going to hold the 15th Biodiversity Planning Forum (BPF) from 19–22 June 2018 in Cape St Francis, Eastern Cape.
Established in 2004, the BPF provides an opportunity for individuals, agencies and departments involved in spatial biodiversity planning to share and synthesise valuable lessons from systematic biodiversity planning projects across South Africa.
Much of the biodiversity planning done in South Africa underpins strategic interventions and supports improved environmental decision-making.
The Forum is intended primarily for those involved in the technical aspects of biodiversity planning and the production and use of biodiversity planning products, including people from conservation agencies, provincial environmental and conservation departments, conservation NGOs, universities and research institutes, and independent biodiversity planning consultants.
The focus in the sessions will be on the technical aspects of biodiversity planning and its implementation. Sessions will concentrate on new approaches, methodologies and issues identified and undertaken since the previous Forum.
