    Africa’s Great Green Wall (GGW) initiative involves over 20 countries around the Sahara. Conceived as a mosaic of green and productive landscapes, the Great Green Wall is considered as a game changer for Africa’s Drylands and communities, given its potential to address climate change adaptation and mitigation, prevent and combat desertification, eradicate poverty, end hunger and boost food and nutrition security. FAO is engaged in this initiative through the EU-funded Action Against Desertification (AAD) programme, supporting six African countries (Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Gambia, Niger, Nigeria and Senegal) in large-scale restoration— one that places rural communities at its heart and biodiversity as key source of resilience and adaptation to climate change. Through this presentation, we will showcase how plant-based solutions are being used for restoration and adaptation to climate change in Africa’s drylands.
