Session 3 – Great Green Wall : mobilizing local actors

Biodiversity and Great Green Wall Day | Session 3

Description :

Africa, the second « green lung » of the planet and an invaluable reservoir of biodiversity, is at the forefront of climate change and biodiversity losses: it can and must take its place in existing multilateralism while inventing its own models of resilience.

Can the Great Green Wall, an emblematic project with great ambitions, give it this opportunity? How can its legitimacy be strengthened among local actors so that it can be included in operational strategies and development plans?
