FMNR_Study_CoverA new major study on the social, environmental and economic benefits of Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration was launched today at the Beating Famine conference in Lilongwe, Malawi. This conference is presenting techniques which are 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.
