Our Principles

The Regen10 Principles are designed to focus our partnership’s actions in support of an inclusive, holistic, and equitable transition towards regenerative food systems.

Our Principles are rooted in the Committee on Food Security’s High-Level Panel of Experts’ Principles of Agroecology, inspired by other existing guidelines on regenerative approaches, and honed by Regen10’s partners.

With these Principles underpinning Regen10’s work, we are building an ambitious multistakeholder initiative that learns from the collective experience of all actors in global food systems to understand what it would take for 50% of the world’s agricultural production to transition to regenerative by 2040.

Regen10 commits to adopting the following 10 Principles to enable regenerative and agroecological approaches to create food systems that deliver positive outcomes for people, nature, and climate.

  1. Farmer-Centricity: Ensure the experiences, knowledge, and realities of farmers, fishers, foragers, herders, and pastoralists are at the centre of regenerative initiatives and policy processes.
  2. Resilience: Identify and support social, ecological, and economically adaptive systems in the face of a changing planet.
  3. Landscape-Alignment: Apply a place-based, socio-ecologically adaptive, and context-specific approach to regenerative initiatives.
  4. Equity, Fairness, and Rights: Make commitments to social justice, sustainable and safe livelihoods, rights-holders and stewards of the land, and access to affordable and nutritious food.
  5. Diversity: Protect, support, and value diverse agricultural, ecological, and cultural realities while recognising the shared reality and reliance of all beings on our planet.
  6. Healthy Climate: Generate positive outcomes in policy, finance, research, and farming processes to ensure food systems fully contribute to global climate mitigation and adaptation goals.
  7. Collaboration and Partnership: Advance a shared and ambitious vision, knowledge and dialogue, and collective strategies among regenerative food systems advocates, experts, and practitioners worldwide.
  8. Inclusivity and Transparency: Facilitate the engagement of diverse people and organisations in transparent deliberations, outcomes, and collective actions affecting regenerative food systems initiatives.
  9. Innovation: Co-create technical, policy, and social innovation to enhance people and planet together.
  10. Ongoing Learning: Build evidence-based and diverse knowledge through peer-to-peer learning that informs and innovates transitions to regenerative food systems for diverse stakeholders and finds shared solutions.
