TerraFund 2023 for AFR100 Landscapes
Applications for TerraFund for AFR100 Landscapes will be open on TerraMatch from April 5 through May 5. This program will fund projects that restore land in three African regions: the Ghana Cocoa Belt, the Lake Kivu & Rusizi River Basin of Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Rwanda, and the Greater Rift Valley of Kenya.
African leaders recognize that the degradation of 65% of the continent’s agricultural land threatens economic and environmental ruin for millions of farmers. At the same time, the effects of climate change – lower crop yields, erratic rainfall, prolonged droughts – are making life harder for millions of people. That’s why African countries have pledged to begin restoring 100 million hectares of degraded land by 2030 through AFR100.
Thousands of local innovators are now pioneering project and business models that show that restoration can create a prosperous, nature-positive future for Africa. Local leadership is key because communities manage nearly 70% of African land, and they know how to build ecologically and socially sustainable projects.
Are you a locally led organization that restores land by growing trees? If you operate in one of TerraFund for AFR100’s three target landscapes, you can apply for $50,000 to $500,000 USD in funding between April 5 and May 5, 2023.
