Scaling Finance: Restoring Africa’s Drylands through Private Investment and Local Projects

21 Jun 2021

Restoring Africa’s drylands is a major economic opportunity: every $1 invested can lead to $7-30 in economic benefits. Recognizing this opportunity, investors have committed more than $15 billion to AFR100 and the Great Green Wall through to 2030. Now, billions of those dollars need to be directly invested in entrepreneurs and community organizations with the necessary long-term vision, local knowledge, and technical expertise to transform Africa’s drylands.

Join World Resources Institute (WRI) for a conversation with three private investors and the leaders of restoration projects that they have funded. Together, panellists unpack how #GenerationRestoration can turn inspiring ideas into action on the ground.
