Rwanda celebrated the International Year of Biodiversity (IYB): Final Report Pictures
UNEP will organize the Tunza African Youth Conference (AYEN) for 2010 in Rwanda as part of the broad range of activities to mark the celebration of World Environment Day. This year's conference is slated for June 2-4 under the theme "African Youth Standing up for Biodiversity" to concretely link the International Year of Biodiversity with the WED celebrations. The conference is organized with the view to build the capacity of the African youth in matters of environmental conservation focusing on issues related to threats to biodiversity (including climate change) and responses. This conference is entrenched in the overall International Year of Biodiversity agenda of creating awareness for conservation action at regional level; regaining momentum on conservation action and ensuring that long term actions related to conservation are clearly articulated, financed and implemented with full participation of all major stakeholders.
