24–28 September 2019 8th World Conference on Ecological Restoration
Cape Town, South Africa
The conference theme for SER2019 is Restoring Land, Water & Community Resilience. Inspired in part by the South African experience with Working for Water and related initiatives, the theme is intended to help keep discussion about developments in restoration research, practice, and policy focused on the big picture. Projects large and small are typically most successful and have the greatest impact when goals are set from alandscape-level perspective and when socioeconomic and cultural dimensions are incorporated from the start. South Africa provides ample opportunity to see and hear inspiring stories of restoration work that combines outcomes for land, water, and community development simultaneously.
