Enhancing restoration capacities in African drylands: A decade for action

Get an inside look at the results of the African capacity needs assessment undertaken by the UN FAO-led taskforce on best practices. This session will raise awareness of the existing systemic capacities for restoration as well as the current gaps and barriers, and of the opportunities to meet these needs in the context of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.

The session will highlight pathways towards enhancing practitioners’ capacities through the development or up-scaling of key knowledge products and various capacity development initiatives, such as the Landscape Academy, the FAO-ELTI youth contest, and the Restoration Factory.
