GEF introduces impact programs to upscale landscape restoration


Source:, 2018-08-28

The Global Environment Facility (GEF) has been working for over 25 years to help mitigate climate change, halt biodiversity loss and combat land degradation. The nexus between these three goals across globally important landscapes present a key opportunity to achieve them in a synergistic way through the generation of global environmental benefits across all these dimensions.

Taking a comprehensive, sustainable approach to restoring forests and landscapes can help address interlinked issues, strengthen food security for a rapidly growing population, and improve millions of livelihoods of those who are particularly dependent on agriculture.

In Africa, more than a third of the jobs are agriculture-related. However, the continent is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change and deforestation. The restoration of forests and landscapes is an integral goal of the AFR100 ľ an initiative that brings to date 21 African nations together with the aim restore 100 million hectares of degraded landscapes across Africa by 2030.

The Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) regional conference ôLandscape Restoration in Africa: Prospects and Opportunitiesö, taking place in Nairobi, Kenya on August 29-30, 2018, aims to foster political and community support to implement the AFR100 initiative by coordinating and increasing international, national and private sector support for forest and landscape restoration.
