The event will enable a better understanding of the Initiative and it will discuss the possibility for accelerated scaling-up of the successes in sustainable land management that have been achieved so far through a greater coordination of efforts and investments across the sub region.

    Thanks for mentioning the preocjt. It’s got great plans and ideas so far. We’re hoping we can get the wheels going and sustain the preocjt as a central place for people to meet and exchange ideas on how to help Africa well past the competition deadlines. So thank you again for helping spread the word.Ernesto
