Agenda

Join us online on 2-3 June to share existing knowledge on drylands restoration and identify knowledge gaps. Learn what tools or practices are needed to effectively reverse our global history of ecosystem degradation, with its high cost for human livelihoods, climate resilience and regional political stability. Act to combat further deterioration, and bend the curve towards net positive restoration across Africa and beyond.

More activities will be added in the coming weeks, please keep checking back to see updates. Days and times are subject to change.

Youth Session
Event Test 1 LIVE NOW
Youth in Landscapes Initiative (YIL) with The African Youth Initiative on Climate Change (AYICC)

The Youth population in Africa is projected to reach 1.2 billion by 2030. But lack of job opportunities, under-employment or challenging work conditions might increasingly become problematic as the number of young people increases. This Youth Daily Show, jointly organized by the African Youth Initiative on Climate Change and the Youth in Landscapes Initiative (YIL), will explore the topic of youth unemployment in Africa and how dryland’s restoration, and more in general the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, can play a role in increasing employment opportunities for regional youth. Two young African leaders will share with us their perspectives and stories and together we will explore how the restoration of drylands can bring hope, for communities and for nature.
