Background: Biodiversity conservation
Affiliation: University Nangui Abrogoua (UNA), Côte d‘Ivoire


Country: Côte d‘Ivoire

Motivation: I am really keen of being SPIBES student, because I think this MSc program is really pertinent and innovative for effectively fixing West African biodiversity and ecosystem services issues. The program will provide me with relevant tools and methodologies to strongly impact policy-makers in my country. SPIBES is special because it combines both disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches, to proffer the best solutions for conserving biodiversity in West Africa. At the end of this program, I expect to be able to have an interdisciplinary approach to reduce threats posed to biodiversity in West Africa through advocacy and consultancy.
