Land restoration in Africa delivers for people and climate

Digital Room 2

Restoring degraded land contributes to climate change mitigation and adaptation, biodiversity enrichment and equitably improves the livelihoods of local communities. This session will highlight that large-scale land restoration in sub-Saharan Africa is possible and discuss key ingredients of success. We will explore partnerships and inclusion, drivers for restoration in policy and value chains, matching restoration practices to local contexts and the central role of evidence in magnifying the impact of interventions. Finally, we will look forward to restoration ambitions on the continent and the opportunity for land restoration to bridge people, climate, biodiversity and land.
