Driving creative solutions to managing natural resources and addressing climate change as a foundation for sustainable economic growth
Given the large percentage of Africa’s population living in rural areas dependent on the land for their livelihood, governments on the continent need to pay particular attention to sustainable use of natural resources. Drought, pollution, and deforestation and desertification are all existential threats that hang over too many of Africa’s people. Governments, donors, and other partners must work together to help the people of Africa become more resilient and better able to face both existing environmental challenges and the coming challenges of climate change.
