The Society for Ecological Restoration (SER) together with South Africa’s Water Research Commission (WRC) and Department of Environment, Forestry and Fisheries hosted the 8th World Conference on Ecological Restoration conference in Cape Town, attracting more than 900 delegates from more than 60 countries. A statement in support of the UN Decade was collectively issued by members and participants. The statement also supports the CBD efforts in nature conservation with 2021 being the Year of Biodiversity celebration. These global efforts are taking place in the same year, 2021. The WRC was also mandated at this conference by the SER Board to spread the restoration network in the continent in partnership with society members and interested parties. This process is underway, under the supervision of WildTrust staff that represent Africa on the Board of SER. Africa, is one of the few continents that remain without a chapter to SER (formal community of practice). Therefore, the aim of this webinar is to demonstrate some of the restoration tools, including environmental flow determinations, their application in Australia, India, Pakistan, Kenya, Tanzania, Madagascar, Mozambique and in South Africa. The webinar hosted by the emerging SER-African restoration network is also aimed at assessing the readiness of Africa to engage the UN decade of ecosystem restoration. This is the first in the series.
