Side event on Great Apes Conservation
This event, which will focus on current challenges in Great Apes conservation, will follow the Executive Committee of the Great Apes Survival Partnership (GRASP).
Coordinated by UNESCO and the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) the Great Apes Survival Partnership (GRASP) is a unique alliance of nearly 100 national governments, conservation organizations, research institutions, United Nations (UN) agencies, and private companies. Through GRASP, UNESCO's Man and the Biosphere Programme (MAB) works to ensure the long-term survival of chimpanzees, orangutans, gorillas, and bonobos and their habitats in Africa and Asia.
Following GRASP Executive committee, the side event on Great Apes Conservation will take place at UNESCO in room IV from 10 am to 1 pm on 27 July 2016.
The event will close with a question-answer session.
