The Great Green Wall for Cities (GGWC) aims to use FBS to improve ecological continuity within urban areas and, by 2030, create up to 500,000 hectares of new urban forests and restore/maintain up to 300,000 ha of existing natural forests in and around cities in the Sahel and Central Asia. At least three cities in each of 30 countries will develop an integrated forestry strategy and implement it on a substantive scale.
