Releasing the Underground Forest

Releasing the Underground Forest

This infopoint conference will provide a brief description of Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration, a low-cost agroecological approach used to combat poverty and hunger. We will discuss what it is, its history, spread and impact. It will be followed by an exploration of harnessing the regenerative capacity of natural systems through enabling and harnessing the power of ordinary people. Finally, we will touch on the Bonn Challenge and how FMNR can impact climate change
