Established in 2012 as the EverGreen Agriculture Partnership (EVAP), it acts to facilitate a collaborative approach to the global problems of food insecurity, rural poverty, climate change and land degradation, and to develop and implement long-term solutions at a globally significant scale.
It has brought leading research, technical and development organizations together to harness their collective energies and build on their shared vision to restore degraded land, and improve the sustainability, profitability and reliability of smallholder farming systems.
Its core members include World Vision, Conservation International, the World Resources Institute, the World Agroforestry Centre, CARE International, Oxfam and Catholic Relief Services.
In 2018 Global EverGreening Alliance was officially incorporated as a not-for-profit public company. It is headquartered at the World Vision Australia building in Melbourne, Australia.
