Scaling up Regreening: Six steps to success: A practical approach to forest and landscape restoration
In a world grappling with the challenges of food insecurity, climate change, landscape degradation, and rural poverty, regreening offers a path forward, especially in dryland areas. The transformation of degraded landscapes—restoring productivity and increasing resilience through the widespread adoption of agroforestry and sustainable land management practices—can deliver food, climate, and livelihood benefits. This report (PDF) by the World Resources Institute (WRI) sets out a six-step framework for scaling up regreening, each step accompanied by a list of practical, on-the-ground activities to guide development practitioners and regreening advocates. Regreening occurs at the landscape level through a variety of agroforestry and sustainable land management practices. In this report, the focus is on a specific agroforestry practice: farmer-managed natural regeneration (FMNR).
