Regreening Africa aims to reverse land degradation on 1 million hectares across 8 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.
By 2022, we will have improved the livelihoods, food security and climate resilience of 500,000 households by restoring ecosystem services, particularly through agroforestry. Our work involves the deliberate and systematic integration of trees, crops and livestock—all critical elements for the sustainable management of land and maintenance of healthy landscapes.
The inclusive and evidence-based approaches to scaling land restoration engagement workshops, co-designed by the SHARED (Stakeholder Approach to Risk Informed and Evidence-based Decision-making) component, brings together a wide range of stakeholders and partners...
As a large scale, multi-country, multistakeholder restoration initiative, Regreening Africa offers a unique opportunity to generate actionable lessons on the cost-effectiveness and impact of local, national, and global restoration efforts. These Insights series share...

Where we work
Our key activities
Farm and landscape restoration
Using tree-based land restoration techniques (including Farmer-Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR) and tree planting) but also broader watershed management efforts including soil, water and biodiversity conservation practices.
Scaling-up land restoration across the African continent
Cross-learning among eight implementing countries in Africa, led by international NGOs working with grass-root organisations and farmers to scale up regreening activities.
Influencing policy to incentivise restoration
Focus on policy influencing at the national and subnational levels in support of country-level agroforestry strategies and enabling policies and engaging key government ministries and other stakeholders on promoting land and tree tenure policies that encourage the adoption of agroforestry.
Developing restoration approaches to suit different local contexts
Building on country and local situations, needs and priorities, research, learning and communication are imbedded to match options to contexts and scales.
We seek improve the livelihoods, food security and resilience to the current climate crisis by restoring ecosystem services particularly through agroforestry.
Agroforestry involves the deliberate and systematic integration of trees, crops and livestock, which is critical for the sustainable management of land and maintenance of healthy landscapes.
