Networking opportunities created by leading a workshop

10 Aug 2017



One of our PhD students, Sofía Lopez, recently attended the International Conference of Conservation Biology (ICCB) 2017 in her home country, Colombia. Prior to the conference, she led a workshop that focused on identifying new opportunities for biodiversity conservation in Colombia’s post-conflict era. The recent peace agreement with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) provides an opportunity for strong economic development, but also poses a threat to biodiversity if mitigation measures are not put in place.


Sofía discusses how the workshop provided a platform from which to grow her professional network and learn about cutting-edge research being conducted in the region. To hear more about her experiences, take a look at her blog post.
