GLF Africa: Restoring Africa’s Drylands - Accelerating Action on the Ground
Event start date
Africa’s drylands are the birthplace of some of the world’s most extraordinary civilizations and species, from ancient kingdoms to wild elephants to “miracle grains” like millet and sorghum -- but climate change has not been kind to these landscapes.
On 3 June 2021, Global Landscapes Forum will host the first-ever digital conference focused entirely on Africa’s drylands and how integrative restoration practices can see them flourish once again. GLF Africa invites practitioners, farmer organizations, Indigenous Peoples, community leaders, researchers, policymakers, financial investors, the private sector, civil society organizations, youth groups, activists, conservation and development organizations, amongst others, who are actively engaged in, interested in, and dedicated to the scaling of, dryland restoration in Africa.
