Description:

Participatory methodologies used to develop a "hybrid" knowledge base, combining local and scientific knowledge, reflect an effort to understand the complexity of the land management decision-making to promote and protect multifunctional land uses. This is part of continuing South-South efforts between Latin America and Africa to develop land quality monitoring systems that strengthen local environmental/agricultural institutions and communities with tools that support local decision-making in natural resource management and promote sustainable land use in agricultural landscapes.

Please join us! Coffee and tea provided. Everyone is welcome, but admittance will be on a first come–first served basis.
