A new framework for AFR100 pairs unprecedented investment for restoration with innovative monitoring systems showcasing the success of new and existing locally-led solutions. With support from partners around the world, land throughout Africa will be restored to protect from the worst effects of climate change, revolutionize agriculture and improve life for people in local communities and around the world.

This new framework, managed by WRI’s Global Restoration Initiative, opens a new era of restoration financing in Africa.
