World Vision International's project to promote large-scale agroforestry in order to reverse land degradation.
Overview of the project
Regreening Africa builds on the land restoration success in the Maradi and Zinder regions of Niger, where an estimated 5 million hectares have been restored. To extend this work throughout the country, World Vision Niger is leading a coalition of development, research and government partners.
The project aims to reverse land degradation through the widespread adoption of agroforestry, including building community capacity and support for the development of agroforestry value chains.
