International Academy for Nature Conservation

The International Academy for Nature Conservation (INA) is part of a branch office of the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN).

It provides a forum for the discussion and solution of national and international nature conservation issues. It is a place for debate among conservation experts and communication between the German Federal Government and the Länder (states). This makes it a centre for dialogue between representatives of many different fields, including: science and public administration, politicians and industry, associations and foundations.

Tagungsteilnehmer

The International Academy for Nature Conservation hosts an annually updated programme of around 80 national and international seminars grouped into six seminar series, each addressing a key topic.
