April 23 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm Tony Rinaudo of World Vision, a pioneer of Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration will be leading a JRI Webinar. Book Now! He worked in Niger as a missionary in the Sahel (almost desert). Tony realised that native trees which had been cleared to make space for crops were still alive underground; the forest was waiting to sprout back from stumps across the desert. Instead of planting saplings to reverse desertification, Tony and his staff persuaded a few farmers to allow some stumps to regenerate. In between the regrowing trees, small-holders’ crops fared better in the dry climate, and year on year crop yields improved.
