Reversing Global Warming while Meeting Human Needs: An Urgently Needed Land-Based Option

WHAT: A presentation by Allan Savory, Rancher and Restoration Ecologist, Founder of the Savory Institute and originator of the Holistic Management approach to restoring grasslands.  This is a rare opportunity to hear Allan Savory, while he is in the Boston area.

WHERE: ASEAN Auditorium, The Fletcher School at Tufts University, 160 Packard Ave., Medford, Mass.

WHEN: Friday, January 25, 2013, 2:00 – 4:00 PM

Reception to follow. Free and open to the public. Presented by the Agriculture, Forests, and Biodiversity Program of the Center for International Environment and Resource Policy at Fletcher; the Agriculture, Food, and Environment Program of Tufts’ Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy; and Planet-TECH Associates.

While governments posture and dither, a pragmatic practitioner and intellectual entrepreneur, Allan Savory, has been developing and demonstrating a powerful technique that can reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere immediately while reversing desertification and providing livelihoods and food for millions of people.  His applied research based in Zimbabwe on the restoration of grasslands has now been replicated on millions of acres worldwide. The application of his methods has the potential to significantly reduce atmospheric carbon through an increase in plant growth and soil formation. This process begins immediately and involves no new technologies, only a shift to the Holistic Management practices for livestock that he has pioneered.

Major organizations and institutions are now recognizing his work, but climate scientists and governments have yet to incorporate it into their analyses and policy prescriptions.
