Namibia recognizes the effects of deforestation and land degradation, coupled with climate change and poor land management. In Southern Africa, counteracting these effects is especially important through reforestation and restoration to improve the livelihoods of Namibians. This is critical for people living in rural areas, who are the most vulnerable to climate change impacts.

Namibia's commitment of 76,430 hectares of forest and land includes 35,000 hectares from its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) to the Paris Agreement and 41,430 hectares from its Land Degradation Neutrality target.
