How Farmers in Africa are Restoring Degraded Lands and Enhancing Resilience


Join the World Resources Institute (WRI) for a live discussion with World Vision’s Tony Rinaudo, WRI’s Robert Winterbottom and other experts on Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration – a key strategy for restoring degraded lands, achieving food security, and enriching rural areas.


Throughout the developing world, huge tracts of farmland, grazing lands and forests have become degraded to the point they are barely productive. This has an extremely detrimental effect on subsistence farming households and their communities who make up a large proportion of rural populations and who suffer regularly from hunger and malnutrition. In September 2014, governments, corporations, indigenous peoples’ groups and CSOs signed the New York Declaration on Forests pledging to restore 350 million hectares of degraded forest land by 2030. Among the key approaches that is central to achieving this goal is Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR).
