In 2018, the Pan-African Agency of the Great Green Wall and Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography (CAS) jointly established the Pan-African Great Green Wall Research Center.
The center will cooperate with PAGGW on staff training and research of agro-sylvo-pastoral ecosystem monitoring and evaluation, as well as the development of a monitoring and evaluation system through the Geographic Information System and the Early Warning System for combatting desertification.
The center aims to share the "Chinese model" and technical standards of desertification combating, to promote the green development of China-Africa cooperation.
The Great Green Wall is an African initiative led by the African Union to combat climate change and desertification. The project aims to improve the lives of millions of people by creating a great green productive landscape across the Sahel in North Africa.
