Over a decade ago, the Global Environment Facility (GEF), in close partnership with the World Bank, invested in what has become a landmark project for Africa and the world—the Great Green Wall Initiative (GGWI) in the Sahel. Today, with the involvement of a growing number of countries, international agencies, and local communities across the Sahel, life has started coming back to the land, bringing improved food security, jobs, and stability to people’s lives. There is an immense opportunity to build on this success by scaling-up investments for the GGWI.
