Building Partnerships for Rangeland Restoration in Africa

24 Jun 2021

Rangelands occupy one-third of all land on earth, are home to important biodiversity, support more than 2 billion people, and contribute significantly to the SDGs. Despite their importance, rangelands remain characterized by chronic underinvestment and high degradation.

This session builds on the ongoing global rangeland dialogue between UNCCD member countries, NGOs/IGOs, and rangeland local users, and explores the role of partnerships – governments, local communities, the private-sector – in scaling up rangeland restoration. On-the-ground impacts are showcased from countries in Africa to spotlight the role and centrality of women and youth in achieving global restoration ambitions.
