Africa is a continent of change. The African Union’s Agenda 2063 calls for an integrated prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in the global arena. This vision is underpinned by commitments to prosperity, political unity, peace and security, strong cultural identities, values and ethics, people-driven development, and good governance. As investments in agriculture, infrastructure, trade, and power are reshaping the continent, what are the implications for the underpinning ecological systems? With a mission to ensure wildlife and wild lands thrive in modern Africa, AWF leverages 20 years of experience delivering conservation and livelihood outcomes through landscape approaches to deliver today’s agenda in African.
