Environmental Challenges

Why Enter Our Environmental Challenges?

Africa faces serious environmental challenges, including land degradation, deforestation, biodiversity loss and extreme vulnerability to climate change. But the region – which is home to roughly 15 per cent of the world's population as well as some of its most iconic species – has enormous potential for sustainable growth and environmental conservation. In order for Africa to reap the economic and social benefits inherent in this natural wealth, it is necessary to urgently address such issues as the management, economic and environmental impact of their sustainable use.
