Arid Zone Ecology Forum

A Non-Profit Organisation focused on research in the arid zone of southern Africa

The Annual AZEF Forum

AZEF brings together scientists, students, conservationists, agricultural managers, local government, NGOs, the private sector, and land owners.

Annual meetings play a critical role in the evaluation of research and scientific knowledge and co-learning and networking between scientists, students and land-owners.  

The annual meetings are held every year at a different place in the arid part of southern Africa.
