Wangari Maathai's daughter Wanjira wins Sh13.5 billion to restore forests and lakes.

Wanjira Maathai, daughter of Nobel Peace Prize laureate Wangari Maathai, will spearhead a new restoration project in the country and region after the World Resources Institute (WRI), where she is the managing director of Africa and Global Partnerships, won US$100 million (about Sh13.5 billion). This comes after TED, a non-profit organisation that aims to create a future worth pursuing for all through the Audacious Project launched in 2018, announced during TED2023 in Vancouver, Canada, that WRI's Restore Local project has won US$100 million over four years to accelerate locally-led land restoration in three African landscapes, namely the Lake Kivu and Rusizi River Basin, Ghana's Cocoa Belt and Kenya's Greater Rift Valley. "I am honoured that Restore Local has been selected for catalytic funding through The Audacious Project, which is a clear signal of confidence in locally-led action," said Ms Maathai.

                  @mc_kaka the aim is to restore 100 million hectares of degraded land in Africa by 2030. She says '"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."
