Dr Kanayo Nwanze, President, International Fund for Agricultural Development,
in his message, shares bottom-up examples how to combat land degradation.
“This week as world leaders meet in Rio, villagers in Burkina Faso will be carefully managing their land. Let us learn from these farmers how each day proves that we all can make a difference. Let us join them by transforming the way we manage our natural resources and continue our work even after the spot light has moved on.”
