Southern Africa has a rich natural heritage of global significance to the world’s climate and biological diversity. Unfortunately, the capacity of nature to maintain this biological wealth is rapidly diminishing due to habitat loss and degradation resulting from unsustainable development, pollution, invasion by alien species, climate change and overharvesting of natural resources.
AFD works with countries’ national and local authorities to fund innovative approaches to preserving and restoring ecosystems, sustainably managing forests, combating desertification, halting and reversing the process of land degradation and ending the loss of biodiversity.
