Low cost approach

to restore degraded land and fight poverty

Low cost way to restore land and fight poverty

A successful reforestation technique, also applied in our Sodo community project in Ethiopia, is gaining further momentum. A new manual, helping projects, partners and communities using this innovative approach, has just been published here: https://fmnrhub.com.au/fmnr-manual. FMNR stands for Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration and is a low cost technique to restore degraded lands. 

The method uses existing living root fragments of cut trees and makes them grow again. It is mainly used in desert and semi-desert areas in Africa. In the Sahel zone, millions of hectares of land have been restoring vegetation, thereby helping to stop desertification and re-green drylands.

The manual covers a number of topics including assessing the need for FMNR within a community, the technical practice of FMNR, community engagement, managing risks, designing a project, monitoring and evaluation.
