FMNR Books

FMNR is referenced in several books. If you want an overview of the practice we recommend The Forest Maker, edited by Johannes Dieterich. It tells the tale of Tony, FMNR and the future of this regenerative practice. 

Up to 700 million people will possibly be obliged to leave their homelands during the next three decades because of increasing desertification in the landscapes where they live. In the opinion of scientists, there is only one hope: to convince the local farmers of ‘sustainable land management’. Tony Rinaudo believes that with FMNR he has found the appropriate method for such management – and just in time to stop, or even to be able to reverse the destruction of livelihoods.”
