Regreening Africa is building on excellent cases of land restoration from Maradi and Zinder regions of Niger where an estimated 5 million hectares have been restored. To scale this up across the country and beyond, World Vision Niger is leading the project and also bringing together a cross-section of actors in development, research and government in the country.
