Regenerative agriculture has become the darling of many policymakers, food companies and farmers. But can it deliver on climate change mitigation?
This webinar will explore WRI’s view that these practices can improve soil health and yield some valuable environmental benefits, but are unlikely to achieve large-scale emissions reductions.
We’ll dive into agriculture’s connection to climate change, what the literature says about regenerative agriculture’s potential for emissions reduction, and what this means for how to build a sustainable food future – including how to produce more food while protecting natural resources.
