This landmark forum will provide a platform for holding honest discussions on the future wanted for Africas protected areas and seek solutions to the persistent and emerging problems. The continent has lost over 50% of its ecosystems in the last 50 years, far higher than any other period in history. Both direct and indirect drivers of biodiversity loss are leading to an unsustainable future for our people and the planet as a whole, putting our common future is in jeopardy.

APAC 2019 will bring together political and community leaders, protected area practitioners, professionals from diverse fields, scholars, researchers, the youth, women, academia, and stakeholders from public and private sectors from across the continent with a goal of positioning Africa's protected areas within the broader goals of sustainable development and community well-being.
