Restoring land and livelihoods across East and Southern Africa’s degraded landscapes

We have joined forces

The Global EverGreening Alliance and its members have joined forces in the biggest small-scale farmer-driven land restoration project: Restore Africa.  This program will accelerate and massively scale up the adoption of Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR) and other complementary Evergreening practices in Tanzania, Uganda, Malawi, Zambia, Kenya and Ethiopia by building on existing successful projects and proven-effective approaches.

Through this project, we will also significantly contribute to the African Forest Landscape Restoration Initiative, which aims to bring at least 100 million hectares of degraded land under restoration by 2030.

A collaborative effort

The Restore Africa programme has been designed for inclusive and collaborative implementation in partnership with the governments of participating countries, members of the Global EverGreening Alliance,  and grassroots organisations.

Project impact

The Restore Africa programme will directly support at least 2 million small-scale farming households and restore more than 2 million hectares of degraded land, over the next 5 years.

This will be the biggest small-scale farmer-driven grassroots restoration program in Sub-Saharan Africa, providing the kick-start of the implementation of Green Up to Cool Down, worldwide.

Make a Difference

Support the Restore Africa Programme and join us in reversing land degradation, combat extreme poverty, and mitigate the impacts of climate change.


95% of all funds received will be applied directly to grassroots restoration efforts across Africa, with the remaining 5% being applied to developing and maintaining a public cloud- based monitoring platform, showing where and how donations are used and the impact they are having, and to support the EverGreening of The Earth campaign.
