Restoration in Africa: Prospects and Opportunities. A Global Landscapes Forum eventWith approximately 50 million hectares of land afflicted by degradation, Africa faces perhaps the toughest ecological test of any continent: widespread deforestation and land degradation but with the fewest resources to combat them. But necessity is the mother of invention and the people of Africa are responding to the challenge at every level of society through new methods of cooperation, adaptation and innovation. The GLF regional conference "Landscape Restoration in Africa: Prospects and Opportunities" will seek to maximise the dialogue that has already achieved such success. Through the prism of rights, finance, food and livelihoods and measuring progress, the conference will focus attention on to areas with the greatest potential for deliverable results. The event will amplify the political momentum that has already amassed behind landscape restoration and drive forward regional cooperation. Rooted in cutting-edge environmental science, the event will spark a grassroots movement across Africa, designed to achieve dynamic, inclusive and sustainable development across the continent.
