16/12/2013 - 17/12/2013

Rome, FAO

Global Mechanism of the UNCCD and FAO, under the auspices of the African Union Commission, are organizing an international forum to promote a common vision of the Great Green Wall for the Sahara and the Sahel Initiative (GGWSSI) and build partnerships for its implementation. The event will take place at FAO headquarters in Rome, offering an opportunity to inform representatives of African countries, international organizations, development banks, civil society and the private sector of the results achieved so far by the initiative and to discuss how the GGWSSI can even contribute more to build the resilience of the people in the region and the natural systems on which their livelihoods depend. During the forum, participants will seek to deepen and expand partnerships and aim to establish a mechanism for coordination between financial and technical partners.
