The GEF-7 Drylands Sustainable Landscapes Impact Program (DSL IP) aims at transforming the management of drylands in 11 countries across three geographical clusters; 1) the Miombo and Mopane ecosystems of Southern Africa, 2) the savanna and grasslands in East and West Africa and, 3) the temperate grasslands, savannas and shrublands of Central Asia. This session will bring partners and stakeholders from different sectors and scales (local, national, regional and global) together to share their respective perspectives on the dryland management challenges in the target regions and to discuss how the DSL IP’s programmatic approach will support them in overcoming these challenges.

This plenary will set the foundation for aligning the UN Decade on Ecosystems Restoration and the UN Food Systems Summit. Restoration and rehabilitation of degraded land are one of the focal areas for Action Track 3 “Boosting nature positive production”.
Technology and innovation for restoration monitoring is rapidly advancing supported by developments in geospatial technology and imagery. If deployed effectively across critical landscapes, these technical solutions for restoration planning and monitoring can drive restoration actions on the ground and contribute significantly to meeting the ambitious targets of the restoration, biodiversity and climate agendas.
