African Botanic Garden Network (ABGN)

The African Botanic Garden Network (ABGN) was established in 2002 to promote and support the work of botanical gardens and associated institutions through education, conservation and sustainable use of plants for development, poverty alleviation and halting biodiversity loss. For more information on ABGN activities contact BGCI

A Strategic Framework to guide the ABGN was developed at the first African Botanic Gardens Congress held in Durban, South Africa, can be accessed here:
