Forest landscape restoration in Madagascar, a leading example in Africa

The Earth loses 7 million hectares of forest each year. An alarming situation that deserves to be addressed at global level. African countries are therefore committed to reversing the situation. Two international strategic meetings on forest restoration are taking place this week in Nairobi, Kenya: the meeting of the African Forest Landscape Restoration Initiative (AFR100) from August 26 to 28  and the Global Landscape Forum (GLF) on 29 and 30 August. WWF's global strategy is to help restoring 350 million hectares of degraded forest landscapes by 2030.
