Abstract

At this stage it is legitimate to ask if the symposium were a success? What did it achieve? And in truth, the answer must be qualified. Most of the participants knew in advance that there is a major divide - communication gap - between the generators (‘scientists’) and ‘users’ (decision-makers/planners) of environmental and ecological data. Perhaps the nature, and causes, of this gap have been more clearly identified but will the remedies be implemented more particularly as they are, in fact, deep-seated, reflecting the education, provided at all levels, in many countries.
