Major study on FMNR launched at the Beating Famine Conference
April 15, 2015
A new major study on the social, environmental and economic benefits of Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR) was launched yesterday at the end of the first day of the Beating Famine conference. FMNR was introduced earlier in the day to conference participants as a technique at the forefront of enhancing food security and fostering climate change resilience.
Although FMNR has gained widespread recognition and demonstrated results, there is still need to generate new evidence. This new study reviews the impacts of FMNR throughout its history across the globe. It is the most comprehensive work on FMNR to date.
Authors Rob Francis (World Vision Australia’s Project Manager FMNR) and Peter Weston (formerly World Vision Australia’s Research and Evaluation Advisor) have identified 24 different social, environmental and economic benefits that stem from the practice of FMNR.
