A Sustainable Development Goal on Land Regeneration


The UN General Assembly held its 3rd Session for the Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals last week in New York.  Participants discussed a range of topics including food security and nutrition, sustainable agriculture, desertification, land degradation and drought, to progress the development of the sustainable development goals.  Dr. Dennis Garrity, UNCCD Drylands Ambassador, addressed the Assembly on these matters and presented his ideas for a SDG on Land Regeneration and the opportunities EverGreen Agriculture provides in the achievement of such a goal.

New casestudy and video about re-greening Africa’s landscape

A new case study and video clip on EverGreen Agriculture has been produced by WRENmedia with support from EIARD.  These new products describe EverGreen Agriculture and its role in restoring exhausted soils with richer sources of organic nutrients, helping smallholders increase crop yields and incomes, and adapt to climate change.
