Regenerative grazing for climate, ecosystem, and human health

The COP27 in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, is the ideal venue to showcase two transformative land regeneration approaches developed in Africa: agroforestry and regenerative grazing management. These two approaches come together in silvopastoral systems – livestock grazing and browsing in tree-dotted grasslands – which have been ranked among the most effective carbon drawdown tools at our disposal.
