  • Meet Australian Tony Rinaudo, AM Agronomist. Principal Climate Action Advisor. Climate Action and Resilience Team Right Livelihood Award Laureate, 2018 Commandeur de Merite, Agricole, Rep. du Niger.

    Land & ecosystem degradation reversal. Protect & rehabilitate watersheds, increase carbon storage & recovery of native biodiversity & crops. Farmer-managed natural regeneration (FMNR) is a low-cost, sustainable land restoration technique used to increase both food and timber production, and resilience to climate extremes. It is a way to enhance the agricultural land with a supply of ecosystem services that have been depleted by land degradation. It is a means to protect and restore watersheds, increase carbon storage, and recover native biodiversity resulting in increased crop yields with this low cost method.

    FMNR was developed by the Australian agricultural economist Tony Rinaudo in the 1980s in West Africa.
