2019 African Wildlife Consultative Forum (AWCF)
AWCF has been SCI Foundation’s signature program in Africa since 2001. AWCF is an annual capacity building venue for communications on common approaches to conservation challenges and creating a continent wide strategy for wildlife management.
The AWCF brings together senior government officials, professional hunting association leadership, the USFWS, international policy experts and wildlife biologists to tackle the most pressing sustainable use issues in Africa. While 2019 produced several action items and other important takeaways, the most valuable aspect of AWCF continues to be bringing together African stakeholders, government to PH together with the USFWS, and the relationships built under the SCI Foundation banner. AWCF continues to be SCIF’s flagship activity in Africa and one of the most valuable events for the Safari Club community, making us leaders in the international arena.
