Scaling up Locally-led Restoration in Africa
Restoring deforested and degraded land is among the most widely accessible, cost-effective solutions in the fight against climate change. Investing in restoration brings:
- Better yields for farmers
- Harvests that are more resilient to drought and heat
- More jobs
- More food security
- More economic development
Nowhere does landscape restoration have greater potential than in Africa, where opportunities and needs are the greatest. African countries have set an ambitious target to restore 100 million hectares of degraded land by 2030 through the African Forest Landscape Restoration Initiative (AFR100) and Great Green Wall.
That’s why the Bezos Earth Fund is committed to scaling up locally-led restoration in Africa.
