Fifth International Pathways Conference has officially started. Having the theme ‘Integrating Human Dimensions into Fisheries and Wildlife Management’, the Conference explores human-wildlife conflict and coexistence, wildlife governance, ONE Health and many other timely human dimensions of fisheries and wildlife management topics.
As one of the key partner organizations of this event, the University of Nairobi warmly welcomed all the participants. In his welcoming speech at the opening session, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Peter Mbithi, expressed confidence towards the contribution of this training in addressing major issues of human and wildlife interaction. He acknowledged that the theme was apt, timely and relevant towards addressing challenges of human and wildlife interaction.
This conference is a result of partnership between the University of Nairobi, through African Drylands Institute for Sustainability, and Colorado State University. The partnership develops the center into one that transforms higher education and creates relevant action research that builds human and institutional capacity for sustaining and improving the ecosystems and human livelihoods in Kenya.
The capacity building training is set close on Wednesday, 13th January, 2016.
