ACCELERATING THE GREAT GREEN WALL: FOSTERING THE AFRICA-EUROPE PARTNERSHIP FOR A JUST RURAL TRANSFORMATION IN THE SAHEL
European Parliament, Brussels—Room SPAAK 7C50
This high-level conference on May 25th 2023 builds on the international momentum around the GGWI and follows up on the One Planet Summit, the 6th AU-EU Heads of State Summit and international conferences such as the Biodiversity, Desertification and Climate COPs. It also complements the launch of the Global Gateway and new EU regulations on deforestation-free products. The conference will bring together key stakeholders from Africa and Europe (political leaders, field experts, research organisations, development and financial institutions, and civil society) with the objective to discuss how to enhance our partnership, as Africa and Europe, and develop credible mid (2030) and long-term (2050) strategies for investment in the Great Green Wall.
