Restoring Africa’s Drylands: Accelerating Action On the Ground
2-3 Jun 2021
SESSION

Why track restoration progress in Africa’s drylands? back to basics

It’s hard to see where people are restoring Africa’s drylands. Where trees are growing outside of tropical forests, it’s hard for satellites to pick them up and harder to measure their economic and social benefits. It’s even harder to show progress when restoration doesn’t involve trees. In this session, you will learn directly about these challenges and opportunities from people actively restoring drylands. Together, we will unpack the what, the why, and the how of monitoring restoration in drylands — and show how tracking progress can lead to more investment and healthier communities. Join World Resources Institute for this exciting and interactive conversation.
