Prof Inza Kone presentation at the International Conference on Biodiversity in the Congo Basin, DRC
After the opening session at the conference, the first presentation was made by Prof Inza Kone, the Director of the “Centre Suisse de Recherche Scientifique” in Côte d’Ivoire and a member of the Red colobus Working Group on “Biodiversité et développement des pays Africains”. After listening to the presentation, my take-home messages are presented below:
- The achievement of SDGs and the agenda 2063 of the African Union depend on the efficient conservation of the natural capital of Africa;
- Encourage the creation of local conservation initiatives;
- Researchers need to learn how to share their findings and communicate with politicians for implementation and valorization of their research;
- It pays to invest in biodiversity conservation.
