The 1st Mediterranean Plant Conservation Week will take place in Ulcnj (Montenegro) from October 24-29, 2016.
This event aims at connecting plant scientist with site managers, local populations and civil society organizations, in order to promote a dialogue on plant conservation issues and to preserve the ecological integrity of plant biodiversity in the Mediterranean region. It also represents an opportunity to develop a framework for dialogue among stakeholders to share successful examples of plant conservation initiatives with local communities, and to enhance capacity building. This event is one of the milestones of the IPAMed project and represents a fantastic networking and learning opportunity for all IPAMed partners and for people working on Mediterranean plant conservation.
Various activities will be held during this week, such as: oral and poster presentations followed by discussions, capacity building sessions, field visits to Important Plant Areas, IPAMed project mid-term review session (close to IPAMed project participants) and the CEPF(Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund) consultation process session.
