    Africa restoring 100 million hectares of deforested and degraded land by 2030

    Through AFR100, national governments, public and private sector partners, international development programs and local communities will restore productivity to deforested and degraded landscapes in order to improve livelihoods.

  • 3% of GDP is lost annually from soil and nutrient depletion on farmland

    2.8M hectares of annual forest cover loss (larger than Rwanda)

    65% of Africa’s land is affected by degradation

    4. Increase Climate Change Resilience In Tigray, Ethiopia, restoration expanded dry season farming from 40 to 40,000 hectares over the past 20 years

    5. Reduce Disaster Risk A single mature baobab in Niger’s Mirriah district produces leaves and fruit worth at least $28, allowing farmers to buy cereals and other food during droughts

    6. Combat Desertification Trees help restore, maintain and improve soil fertility by increasing organic soil matter

    1. Boost Productivity In southern Niger, women used to spend 2.5 hours a day collecting firewood from sparse landscapes. Now, they spend only 0.5 hours by pruning on-farm trees.

    2. Improve Food and Water Security In Zinder and Maradi, Niger, adding trees to farms increased crop yields by 15-30%

    3. Protect Biodiversity In Malawi, increasing trees on farms slowed deforestation by reducing the need to cut existing forests

    Africa Faces Increasing Resource Challenges Africa's population is expected to nearly double by 2050, increasing demands on already-scarce soil and water resources and exacerbating existing challenges:

    Restoring Degraded Land Can Improve Livelihoods Africa has the largest restoration opportunity of any continent in the world—more than 700 million hectares of degraded land, or an area the size of Australia. This degraded land can be restored to forests or mosaic landscapes, providing many benefits.
