Our work

The objective of this assignment is to support the development of the joint Umbrella Programme on the Great Green Wall for the UNCCD and GCF to lay the ground work for the GGW “expansion phase”. The goals of the UP are to build on the significant efforts and support made over the last years in the GGW region and scale up the most transformational approaches in the natural resources sectors in building resilient landscapes, improving the adaptive capacity of local communities, restore and conserve degraded landscapes and transform the region, notably through access to finance and markets. Moreover, the UP will support the achievement of the Great Green Wall’s 2030 goals, i.e., to restore 100 million ha of degraded lands and sequester 250 million tons of carbon and create 10 million jobs.
