The Great Green Wall for Sahara and Sahel initiative (GGWSSI), is a pan-African programme launched in 2007 by the African Union (AU). Its goal is to reverse land degradation and desertification in the Sahel and Sahara, boost food security and support local communities to adapt to climate change. The initiative has evolved to become a sustainable regional land-use planning program.
The vision of a Great Green Wall in Africa is a metaphor that shapes a mosaic of interventions in the sustainable use of lands and community land management practices.
The Great Green Wall offers the opportunity to change the situation in Africa, with the possibility to build local resilience to climate change, to preserve the rural heritage and improve the livelihoods of local populations.
