Launch of two major African landscape initiatives:
AFR100: Restoring 100 million hectares of degraded and deforested landscapes in Africa by 2030 and Africa Resilient Landscape Initiative
African ministers will share their experiences and results from implementing landscape-level initiatives in their countries. An international perspective on resilient landscapes will be given by WRI and the World Bank.
This assessment will be followed by an announcement of commitments by African leaders in terms of the numbers of hectares covered and households supported by the Resilient Landscape Initiative.
Leaders from African countries will also announce a major new initiative to restore forests and agricultural lands. The AFR100 is a pan-African, country-led restoration effort to bring 100 million hectares of degraded landscapes in Africa under restoration by 2030.
The launch event will feature a number of African government ministers as well as prominent representatives from development banks, bilateral donors and impact investors, who will announce financial support for investments in restoration activities in African landscapes.
