Restoration of degraded landscapes in Africa: Lessons for the future

The session will:

  • Provide evidence to inform restoration policy and practice and achieve the vision of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.
  • Synthesize factors affecting the success or failure of restoration initiatives, leading to recommendations for the design of new restoration initiatives.
  • Share lessons learned in terms of outcomes in the restoration impact pathway: 1) policies catalyzing change; 2) investments supporting change; 3) awareness of the need for change; 4) adoption of solutions; and 5) synergies and tradeoffs with other development outcomes.
  • Discuss the potential of existing scientific evidence, data, metrics, tools, methods and partnerships that CGIAR has generated as leveraging points for the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.
