Africa is set to lose three-quarters of its arable land to land degradation, which will exacerbate poverty and threaten livelihoods across the continent. Bamboo is a climate-resilient plant that can both reverse land degradation and help communities mitigate and adapt to climate change. It provides a vital resource for African livelihoods and has great potential for green jobs, economic growth, land restoration, and climate change mitigation and adaptation. This session will showcase bamboo-based land restoration technologies and best practices in Africa by researchers, policymakers and innovators through a series of presentations, short videos, posters, exhibits and audience discussions.
