Through AFR100 in Africa, Initiative 20x20 in Latin America, and the work of WRI Indonesia and WRI India, we are connecting government leaders from 50 countries, impact investors, and technical experts through regional meetings, online webinars and trainings, and peer exchanges.
In our target landscapes, we are supporting local leaders and helping them tell their stories. By turning the guiding principles of forest and landscape restoration (FLR) into reality, they are inspiring people around the world to replicate – and scale up – their work.
AFR100 in Africa
WRI is a managing partner of AFR100, an African Union-led effort to bring 100 million hectares of land into restoration by 2030. Within Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Niger and Rwanda, WRI supports governments, businesses and communities by helping them identify restoration opportunities, track their progress, develop action plans to accelerate implementation and boost private and public investment.
As the Secretariat of Initiative 20x20we have advised governments throughout Latin America on designing national restoration plans (Chile), building custom systems to measure progress (El Salvador), and channel investment to leading projects (Brazil). See a selection of the region’s leading restoration projects here.
In Asia, we are working with local communities and the local and national governments across India to map where restoration can have a positive impact on marginalized peoples and create thousands of jobs. And our Indonesia team advises the national government, companies, and communities on protecting and restoring carbon-rich peatlands.
