The GCCA+ Regional Conference Africa "Climate Smart Africa - Harnessing Growth and Protecting the Gains", convened 130 project developers, representatives of European Union delegations, private sector, and policy decision makers from across Africa. The shared objective was to move from talk to action. The theme that underpinned almost all discussions was the need to focus resources and action around efforts to manage Africa’s land resources. Effective land use and management is a foundation of wealth. Land lies at the heart of Africa’s rich and biodiverse natural capital. The true value of its riches and the diverse ecosystems services it produces have traditionally been radically undervalued, excluded from the real economy, misallocated, misused, and too often given away or lost.
