Getting the Transition Right for People, Nature and Climate
A Better World for People, Nature and Climate
Two-thirds of Africa’s farmland is unproductive, eroded or otherwise degraded. Restoring these landscapes through on-farm trees, sustainable agriculture and other practices can not only boost crop yields and incomes for farmers, it can also improve the water supply, sequester greenhouse gases, reduce extreme heat and more.
AFR100 is a partnership of more than 30 African nations committed to collectively restore 100 million hectares of degraded land by 2030. Together with numerous financial and technical partners, WRI, AFR100’s managing partner, helps governments, businesses and community groups identify restoration opportunities, develop action plans and track progress. WRI also connects locally led restoration projects with public and private investment.
