Restoring Africa’s Drylands: Accelerating Action On the Ground

An event brought to you by the Global Landscapes Forum: 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.

A new era for Africa’s drylands

On 3 June 2021, GLF will host the first-ever digital conference focused entirely on Africa’s drylands and how integrative restoration practices can see them flourish once again. Join in for inspiring speakers, the latest science, concerts, film screenings, virtual tours, networking, and the unexpected discoveries that always form part of a Global Landscapes Forum event.

GLF Africa: Restoring Africa’s Drylands will be held two days before the official launch of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, which runs from 2021 to 2030.

Who should join?

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.
