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

Building partnerships for rangeland restoration in Africa

Rangelands occupy one-third of all land on earth, are home to important biodiversity, support more than 2 billion people and significantly contribute to the SDGs. Despite their importance, rangelands continue to be characterized by chronic underinvestment and high degradation. This session will build on the ongoing global rangeland dialogue by stakeholders (UNCCD member countries, NGOs/IGOs, and rangeland local users). It will also discuss the role of partnerships – governments, local communities, the private-sector – in rangeland restoration and the impacts in Africa. The session will showcase on-the-ground impacts from countries and outline the role of women and youth. The session is co-organized by IUCN, WWF, UNEP, FAO, ILRI, ICRAF, WOCAT
