Feeding the world and conserving nature are often viewed as contrasting purposes. System-based regenerative agriculture, on the other hand, reconciles the need of producing adequate and nutritious food with the necessity of restoring the environment, making farming a solution, instead of a problem, to environmental issues.
Global agriculture is already producing enough food to feed 10 billion people, it is just that 30% of all food produced is wasted. It is thus important to break the vicious circle of produce, waste, degrade, pollute, and produce more.
This 2-pager provides an overview of the key components utilised in regenerative agriculture to explore the question: how can regenerative agriculture be adapted to produce enough food, be a negative emission technology, and advance Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations?
