To.org is proud to support The Great Green Wall initiative.
The Great Green Wall is an African-led movement with an epic ambition to grow an 8,000km natural wonder of the world across the entire width of Africa, from Senegal in the West to Djibouti in the East.
A decade in and roughly 15% underway, the initiative is already bringing life back to Africa’s degraded landscapes at an unprecedented scale, providing food security, jobs and a reason to stay for the millions who live along its path.
It promises to be a compelling solution to the many urgent threats not only facing the African Continent, but the global community as a whole – notably climate change, drought, famine, conflict, and migration.
Once complete, The Great Green Wall will be the largest living structure on the planet, 3 times the size of the Great Barrier Reef.
