5th Workshop of LRG’s German partner organisation Protected Areas between Conservation, Economic Development and Politics Odernheim, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany 20-22 September 2017   Deadline for abstract submission: 31 March 2017 Large protected areas often are not only intended to serve conservation purposes, but also to boost tourism and other local economies. The workshop focuses on resulting synergies and conflicts. It invites presentations by participants on specific problems concerning the declaration, management and acceptance of large protected areas. The event, which is co-funded by LRG, closes with a field trip to the newly established national park “Hunsrueck – Hochwald”, which is very close to the venue. More details are available here.]]>
