Second ESP MENA Conference

The Ecosystem Services Partnership (ESP) is happy to announce that its second ESP MENA Regional conference will take place in Morocco from 27-29 January 2021. This conference will be organised as a hybrid event, allowing for both in-person and digital participation.

The ESP MENA 2021 Regional Conference is part of the annual cycle of ESP regional conferences around the globe. The regional conferences follow our world conferences, of which the last world conference in Germany hosted more than 750 delegates from over 65 countries.

COVID-19 update

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak and after careful consideration, the Conference Organising Committee has decided to organise MENA conference as a hybrid event, allowing for both in-person and digital participation in keeping with the prevention measures against the pandemic.

Be well and stay safe!
