Landscape restoration for sustainable food production: Local action in The Gambia and Nigeria

Digital Room 2

The soil, a key component of land, remains a vital support for plant growth and livestock rearing, but its misuse or mishandling can impact food production broadly. Climate change has adversely affected agricultural production, with many farmlands already degraded, resulting in meager yields. Landscape restoration is thereby eminent for sustainable food production. During this session, we will zoom in on two countries of Sub-Saharan Africa: The Gambia and Nigeria, and we will explore what practices are applied, or need to be applied, by local farmers and other stakeholders to restore landscapes while ensuring productivity and respecting natural resources.
