Presentation and Q & A with Rancher and Restoration Ecologist

 Allan Savory

Founder of the Savory Institute and originator of the Holistic Management approach to restoring grasslands, winner of the Buckminster Fuller Challenge Award, finalist in the Virgin Earth Challenge


While  governments  posture and  dither, a pragmatic  practitioner and intellectual entrepreneur, Allan Savory, has been developing and demonstrating a powerful technique that can reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere immediately while reversing desertification and providing livelihoods and food for millions of people. His applied research based in Zimbabwe on the restoration of grasslands  has  now  been  replicated  onmillions  of  acres worldwide. The application of his methods has the potential to significantly reduce atmospheric carbon through an increase in plant growth and soil formation. This process begins immediately and involves no new technologies, only a shift to the Holistic Management practices for livestock that he has pioneered. Major organizations and institutions are now recognizing his work, but climate scientists and governments have yet to incorporate it into their analyses and policy prescriptions.

 

Free and open to the public. Hosted by the Agriculture, Forests, and Biodiversity Program of the Center for International Environment and Resource Policy at The Fletcher School and Planet-TECH Associates.
