TerraMatch: Funding Africa’s Restoration Movement

TerraMatch is an exciting new global platform that connects people who restore land with funders. TerraMatch’s unique algorithm pairs funders’ preferences, from geography to type of land and beyond, with vetted projects that get the right trees in the ground.

Developed by World Resources Institute, the platform helps countries fulfil their AFR100 commitments by directly financing Africa’s restoration movement. Its matching technique has already connected more than $2 million of funding from international companies with project developers that grow trees, including and Ghana’s Environmental Protection Agency and local NGO ARCOS in Rwanda. The team expects funding to rapidly scale up in the coming months. Learn more in this two-page summary.
