Wangari Maathai's daughter wins Kes 13B to restore forests ,lakes

Restoration is one of the most powerful investments we can make on the planet, because restoring degraded land can simultaneously mitigate climate change and protect communities from its worst impacts. It can also restore land productivity, create jobs and improve family incomes." β€’ Wanjira Mathaai 100 million hectares of degraded land According to Ms Maathai, WRI aims to change this by accelerating the AFR100 movement, an initiative to restore 100 million hectares of degraded land in Africa by 2030. "But the millions of smallholder farmers who will drive this movement need the support of governments, development banks, investors, NGOs and others to fully engage in restoration and reap its benefits," Ms Maathai stressed, recalling that creating a continental restoration movement requires capacity building, more funding, supportive policies and monitoring progress.Β https://nation.africa/kenya/news/wangari-maathai-s-daughter-sh13-5-billion-restore-forests-lakes-4203888 Ms Maathai’s mother, Prof Wangari Maathai, was the founder of the Green Belt Movement, which encouraged the planting of trees in local environments. It was responsible for more than 30 million trees being planted in Africa.
