GLF Live

Africa is set for a population explosion in the decades ahead, with a whopping 60% of the continent’s population currently under the age of 25. This booming young demographic comes with major challenges but also presents enormous opportunities to restore African landscapes through green jobs and sustainable agriculture.

In this episode, first aired in April 2022, we meet three young African environmentalists to discuss how they’re transforming their local landscapes to be more vibrant, valuable and sustainable: Adrian Leitoro, the Global Landscapes Forum’s 2022 Restoration Steward for drylands, Safiatou Nana from the Ouagadougou chapter of the GLFx restoration initiative, and UNCCD Land Hero Patricia Kombo. Joining us as guest host is Kenyan environmentalist Wambui Paula Waibochi.
