Applications are now open for the 2024 World Resources Institute (WRI) Land Accelerator Program. The WRI invites all restoration businesses in AFR100’s 34 member countries to apply, including those who may not traditionally define themselves as restoration enterprises.

Aligning with the Restore Local project, this second program will focus on three vital landscapes: Kenya’s Greater Rift Valley; the Lake Kivu & Rusizi River Basin of Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Rwanda; and the Ghana Cocoa Belt.
The application is free of charge. All entrepreneurs whose businesses restore land in any of the 34 AFR100 Initiative countries to apply, including those who may not traditionally define themselves as restoration enterprises.
