More than half a billion people live and work in Africa’s drylands, among the most parched landscapes on the planet, and representing 43 per cent of the continent. Smallholders nurture crops and graze livestock on land that is mostly rainfed — and rapidly degrading, due in part to the relentless, devastating force of climate change that threatens the rich biodiversity of these fragile landscapes.

If this sounds like something you’re interested in, then now is your time to submit a pitch of 150-200 words for a story focusing on drylands and ecosystem restoration in your country.
