From community-led restoration to carbon-enhancing landscapes

Building on practical cases from West, East, and Southern Africa, discussions in this session will explore community-led soil and land restoration that creates tangible benefits for communities and ecosystems by:

  • Providing insights on inclusive knowledge-sharing models that enhance access to context-specific data and practical toolkits on soil and land restoration
  • Highlighting community-led “social innovations” that help tackle structural barriers to equitable land rights and other governance challenges
  • Showcasing entry points for win-win restoration approaches that incentivize private investments in the sustainable management of shared natural resources

We hope that the discussions will develop practical insights for restoration pathways that simultaneously address social, technical, economic, and institutional barriers to the sustainable use of land, water, energy, and other natural resources.
