More about the event:

With an estimated 2.8 million hectares of forests lost each year, deforestation and land degradation remain significant challenges in Africa. Bringing together diverse public and private sector voices, alongside Indigenous Peoples, scientists and youth, the 2018 Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) Africa Conference will foster political and community support to implement the AFR100 Initiative to restore 100 million hectares of degraded landscapes across Africa by 2030.

This regional conference will focus on the coordination and promotion of international, national and private sector support for forest and landscape restoration, while paving the way forward for forest and landscape restoration implementation.

Numerous country-level restoration success stories exist across the continent, including in Madagascar, Rwanda, Senegal, Uganda, Malawi, Ethiopia and Niger, where local communities have restored more than 5 million hectares of degraded landscapes. The 2018 GLF Africa Conference will showcase and discuss local to regional success stories and challenges, emphasizing ways to strengthen human, technical and financial capacities.

As a platform for thought-provoking discussions between experts, eyewitnesses, policymakers and the local public, the event will build on the critical momentum to offer emerging but concrete plans for combating deforestation and land degradation challenges in Africa.

We'll be participating online so send us your questions for the speakers if you are not able to join!
