Agri Investor reported on the Lab event we have planned in Milan to start discussions around a $1 billion grassland restoration fund. The wider aim of the project Future Ready Now is to be working on the restoration of 1 billion hectares of degraded grasslands globally by 2025. This incubation stage of a project will attract high-profile celebrities to a launch gala event on Sep 19 (date changed) followed by three days of meetings of the so-called Investors Co-design Lab.
Over vast areas of the world, and particularly in Africa most risk and disasters are associated with drought and flood both increasing in severity and frequency. Not as a result of climate change as so often touted but being symptoms of non-effective rainfall or desertification. These regions not being subject to tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, etc. Allan Savory brings this to crystal clarity in this graphic example, which shows that very differently from theoretical models of effective rainfall (r.g. FAO) it is the local practices on the land that most influence rain’s effectiveness.
