Regen10 News and Resources
Accelerating an Evidence, Outcomes, and Principles-Based Transition
Regen10 serves existing leaders and practitioners in regenerative food systems and brings others into the journey through a principles- and evidence-based approach. It focuses on achieving holistic outcomes that include but are not limited to reduced greenhouse gas emissions and improved soil health, water quality, biodiversity, livelihoods, socio-cultural issues, and equity.
There are many examples of regenerative and agroecological initiatives operating in different regions and at varying scales. Regen10 seeks to draw on the learnings from these initiatives, build alignment on desired outcomes across stakeholders, and focus efforts on addressing existing gaps.
Our new statement draws on our discussions with food system actors and outlines five key actions Regen10 will focus on: build an evidence-base and a shared understanding of what it will take to scale regenerative food systems, develop a holistic Outcomes Framework, connect a growing network of experts across the globe, help create an enabling policy and finance environment, and foster global momentum towards regenerative food systems transformation.
Regenerative Agriculture and Agroecology Action Lab – Overview and Call to Action
As part of Food Day@UNGA, The Rockefeller Foundation convened partners working on regenerative agriculture and agroecology to take stock of some of the major initiatives building the case for and removing the obstacles to transition toward regenerative and agroecological approaches at farm, landscape, and national levels; ensure alignment between these initiatives and other efforts; and workshop a common call to action that can unite these many efforts. COP28 offers an unparalleled opportunity to showcase food as a lever for climate action and regenerative agriculture, which has been elevated as a key theme within the food track of this COP, but cannot be seen as separate from the COP15 CBD Kunming-Montreal biodiversity agreement either.
Farmers and Indigenous Peoples’ Ground Up Storytelling
Regen10 worked with WFO and a host of other farmer and Indigenous Peoples’ organisations to create a series of visual stories, told by farmers and Indigenous Peoples’ across the globe, that highlighted regenerative practices in different landscapes. Please share these videos through your own networks, to help further amplify farmer and Indigenous voices.
Regen10 would like to extend thanks to World Farmers Organisation, AfriForum, the South African Agri Initiative (SAAI), Kenya National Farmers’ Federation, Alianza Mesoamericana de Pueblos y Bosques, North East Slow Food and Agrobiodiversity Society (NESFAS) and the Indigenous Partnership for Agrobiodiveristy and Food Sovereignty whose expertise and support made these videos a reality.
November 10, 2022 | Regen 10: Unlocking the Potential of Productive and Regenerative Food Systems- Final Meeting Materials
We celebrated at COP27 announcing the inception of Regen10, a global endeavor aiming to rapidly improve our understanding of how regenerative and agroecological approaches could potentially transform our food system to achieve global goals on food security, climate and biodiversity.
