Shaping the UN Decade: Creating Synergies between Sectors and Scales

21 Jun 2021

Key to the success of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration will be its governance; how can a supportive policy environment be built in Africa that is coherent across sectors and scales? What role do local and national governments play? How do citizens and private companies fit in? What role does the Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement play, and what will it mean for dryland restoration in the region?

Join leading representatives of the United Nations Development Programme, G20 Presidency, African Ministers, private sector and youth as they discuss these questions, and close GLF Africa 2021: Accelerating Action on the Ground with a fervent call for a policy agenda to shape the UN Decade from the start.
