The African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) continues to lead impactful climate adaptation initiatives in Africa. In the Congo Basin, our collaborative efforts in Bili-Uele and Maringa-Lompori-Wamba have resulted in a remarkable 65% improvement in food security since program inception and the establishment of a vast 4,527-square-kilometer ecological corridor. In Zimbabwe, the UTARIRI project, generously supported by SIDA and Danida, effectively combats climate-related challenges, safeguarding over 600 hectares of crops and creating sustainable income sources. Tanzania's Kilombero Valley witnesses AWF's commitment to enhancing farming resilience, manifesting in a 70% increase in yields and improved incomes for sugarcane farmers. 

In Rwanda, in partnership with the government, we are contributing towards climate climate-resilient community development around Volcanoes National Park. Meanwhile, in Niger, our recent partnership with the government and US government agency focuses on water management and biodiversity-friendly value chains. 

AWF's holistic and integrated approach ensures lasting positive impacts on biodiversity conservation, climate resilience, and community well-being. Our commitment to sustainable development remains unwavering as we navigate the interconnected challenges of climate change and biodiversity loss.
