For nature and livelihoods

Past conferences

AZEF brings together scientists, students, conservationists, agricultural managers, local government, NGOs, the private sector and landowners.

At these annual meetings, we share research and scientific knowledge. The meetings also allow for scientists, students, landowners and all partners to network.

The conferences are held every year at a different place in the arid part of southern Africa.
