Land and forest fragmentation and degradation have reached alarming levels as global forest loss between 2015 and2020 has occurred at 10 million hectares (ha) per year with a net forest loss of 7 million ha per year from 2010-2020. In Africa, net forest loss exceeded 4 million ha per year between 2000 and 2005 and approximately 3.9 million ha per year between 2010 and 2020. WWF is setting up a transformational Forest Landscape restoration in Africa Initiative, seeking to unlock large scale implementation of AFR100 commitments in 8 countries namely Cameroon, DRC, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique, Tanzania, Uganda, Zimbabwe and seeking to add a new commitment from Zambia. The initiative is premised on working on three pillars; governance, policy and institutional frameworks, finance and market enablers and delivering large scale implementation on the ground to strengthen the existing political momentum on restoration in the selected countries with the goal of enabling governments in target countries to deliver with partners at least 50% of their AFR100 commitments by FY 2027. The Initiative seeks to strategically contribute to the Bonn Challenge and the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration in 9 countries. Details of the initiatives’ areas of action and innovations are presented and discussed.
