Voices From the Field: The s/heroes of landscape restoration

This plenary will showcase successful restoration practices and the women and men that are practicing them in the drylands. The plenary will illustrate a suite of restoration practices applied across heterogenous contexts in a participatory manner with involvement of women, men, youth and their respective organizations.

Stories will be heard from Kenya, Ethiopia, Senegal, Ghana, Mali, Nigeria and Niger. Approaches to building grassroots movements will be highlighted; scaling and deepening learnings on restoration from farmer/household decision making all the way to local institution formation in leading local movements via faith-based groups, farmer cooperatives, women saving groups and community based organizations.
