from the Countries of Central and Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, West and

The program complements the range of national and
international workshops and seminars on nature conservation topics offered by
the agency’s International Nature Conservation Academy with a fellowship
program for early-career conservation professionals. Prof. Klaus Toepfer, the
former UNEP Director, has agreed to serve as patron for the program.
