The "Reconciling Poverty Eradication and Quality of the Environment: What are the innovative solutions?" conference, organised by the Veolia Environment Institute in partnership with the French Development Agency, aims at presenting, illustrating and debating global and local approaches and initiatives making it possible to reconcile poverty eradication and quality of the environment. It will rely on scientific, political and practitioners’ viewpoints. Through concrete cases, the conference therefore aims at promoting best practices and issuing recommendations to stakeholders and decision-makers.
Many organisations are exploring the links between conservation and poverty. See details of all recent and forthcoming meetings and events.
We also periodically organise or support events that tackle key issues of relevance to learning group members. If you are interested events check out our meetings and events page.
