Restoring Landscapes & Livelihoods in East and Southern Africa.

The Restore Africa Programme aims to restore 1.9 million hectares of land and directly support 1.5 million smallholder farming families, across six African countries - Kenya, Ethiopia, Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia.


We have joined forces

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.


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.

The problem

Our people and our planet are struggling.

With rising temperatures, unpredictable rainfall, increasing desertification and biodiversity loss, climate change is already affecting African ecosystems – and the rural communities that depend on them.


Restore the landscapes, support the farmers.

Through ‘evergreening’ approaches to carbon-capture that help farmers rehabilitate their land, the Alliance is addressing the major barriers to sustainable development.

The Benefit

Our people and our planet can start thriving.

Habitats and ecosystems are restored, biodiversity is increased and remaining forests are protected, all while improving the livelihoods of vulnerable communities.
