Africa is a youthful continent and is immensely rich in biodiversity, but is also experiencing unprecedented rates of population growth, urbanization and agricultural development, which create immense challenges in reconciling human well-being with environmental and economic prosperity. To this end, GYBN Africa aims to bring the voice of young Africans to biodiversity policy arenas, empower African youth and raise the awareness of the values of biodiversity among African people. GYBN Africa has supported the development of 8 national chapters across the continent and is looking forward to creating more national chapters in the near future.
