The Forest Underground: Hope For a Planet in Crisis

Tony Rinaudo

Hardback 2022-04-01

Publisher Description

Australian agronomists Tony and Liz Rinaudo arrived at the edge of the Sahara in 1981 to plant trees. Few trees survived in the hostile terrain, and those that did were cut down by farmers.While contemplating the futility of their endeavours, Tony discovered an embarrassingly simple method ofrestoring landscape without planting a single tree. Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR), the sustainable system ofland management that Tony pioneered, has revolutionised reforestation across Africa and beyond. In Niger alone, local farmers embracing FMNR have rehabilitated over six million hectares of ruined land and doubled their crop yields and income. Tony is a Right Livelihood Award Laureate and Principal Climate Action Advisor with World Vision.
