The TerrAfrica partnership supports governments of Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), the international development community and other global, regional and national stakeholders to better coordinate efforts to up-scale the financing and mainstreaming of effective and efficient country driven sustainable land management (SLM) initiatives. GEF implementing agencies have been managing a portfolio of projects that address land degradation and SLM issues both at country and regional levels in SSA. Many of these projects have catalysed further additional financing from various partners and the results are beginning to show in some cases. Agencies will share on their experiences and results from the portfolio of projects under their management.
The side-event will bring together SLM practitioners from the countries, TerrAfrica as well as other partners supporting SLM work in the countries.
