The Great Green Wall is a project to restore 8,000 Km of degraded land in the semi-arid region of Sahel across all the width of Africa, from Senegal to Djibouti.
Land restoration is an investment in survival from drought, famine, conflict and migration. This initiative is already making a difference by providing food security, jobs and a reason to stay on the land for the millions who live along its path.
The benefits of The Wall extend beyond the African continent. This is a compelling solution to the many urgent threats that face the global community as a whole. And once complete, the Great Green Wall will be the largest living structure on the planet, 3 times the size of the Great Barrier Reef.
