Launch of the AFR100 initiative for reforestation in Africa

During the climate negotiations in Paris, representatives of African governments announced the launch of the AFR100 initiative. This strategy aims to restore almost 100 million hectares of forest and woodland in Africa between now and 2030. The New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD), the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the World Resources Institute (WRI) have contributed to the launch of AFR100. The AFR100 initiative currently involves ten African countries (Ethiopia, Kenya, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Niger, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Togo and Uganda). According to the BMZ, these States have already undertaken to reforest more than 30 million hectares of degraded areas. “These undertakings are based on climate protection measures announced by numerous African countries in advance of the conference to work towards a binding global agreement in this field”, the BMZ announced on 7 December 2015.
