Technical Partners

In addition to new financing, a coalition of organizations will provide technical assistance on a wide range of activities, including the mapping of restoration opportunities, securing further financing, and providing catalytic support for the implementation of restoration efforts on the ground.

The main actors in implementation of restoration are farmers, herders, resource user groups, local leaders and other actors in rural communities, along with supporting stakeholders such as the private sector, NGOs and government agencies working at different levels.

Partners include:

Technical partners are meant to enhance technical support and coordination through:

  • Technical support for mapping, monitoring, economics, finance, enabling conditions
  • Regular convenings to share lessons, tools, approaches and results
  • Learning exchanges for first-hand learning and perspectives from peers

AFR100 technical partners bring a broad range of expertise in assessing restoration opportunities and scaling up implementation on the ground.

In 2017, technical partners and country partners will establish 'task forces' to tackle barriers to implementation and generate successful approaches that can be replicated throughout the partnership. These task forces will better leverage the diverse and extensive experience that partners bring to AFR100.
