Did you know? Almost half of Africa's surface is categorized as drylands, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO). Drylands are particularly vulnerable to degradation and climate change, and restoring them is essential to the food security and livelihoods of more than 525 million people across Africa. On 2-3 June 2021, GLF will host a digital conference focused entirely on restoring Africa’s drylands, and on how integrative restoration practices can see them flourish once again. Earlybird tickets close

On 2-3 June 2021, GLF will host a digital conference focused entirely on restoring Africa’s drylands, which stretch over two-thirds of the continent’s land area and are home to around 45% of its population – and they’re particularly vulnerable to degradation and climate change.
