Growing regenerative agriculture – pathways and potential for scaling up
There is a surge of interest in regenerative agriculture as a way of addressing multiple crises relating to climate change, soil and biodiversity. Adopting regenerative farming approaches has the potential to reduce GHG emissions and generate significant environmental and social co-benefits. But what’s the potential for scaling up regenerative agriculture at a national or global scale and how can we achieve it? Our panel of experts and practitioners will explore the potential to scale up regenerative agriculture, the pathways and challenges to scaling up and the policies and government support needed. The discussion will be moderated by Professor Rod Keenan from the University of Melbourne.
This event is the second seminar of the Sustainable Food System project funded by Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute and is co-hosted by Centre for Resources, Energy and Environmental Law, the Faculty of Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences and the Scaling Regenerative Agriculture project funded by Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute.
