GLF Africa Digital Conference 2022

Many parts of Africa are facing catastrophic drought due to the effects of climate change. But there’s good news: a growing movement of local communities and traditional leaders are working to restore the continent’s degraded landscapes. Join them!

A new era for Africa’s drylands

The GLF Africa Digital Conference will gather thousands of frontline leaders who are tackling the climate crisis head-on. Featuring leading change-makers, voices, and thinkers from across Africa and the rest of the world, GLF Africa will demonstrate the power of community-led action for food security, drought management, and healthy ecosystems.

Who is this event for?

Join us for a day packed with inspiring speakers, the latest science, concerts, virtual tours, job opportunities and networking. Connect, share, learn and act directly with the entrepreneurs, traditional leaders, youth and women shaping the future of the continent.  Packed with lessons learned from the Great Green Wall, sustainable food value chains, and green finance initiatives, GLF Africa will provide you with the knowledge, tools, and connections to play your part in the growing restoration movement.
