Video -  FMNR: Everything is Connected

This video from WorldVision Australia demonstrates the value of the Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR) system. 

Watch Video

"In a balanced ecosystem, people and animals thrive. But when trees are cut down and land is burned, that balance is lost. Deforestation effects include soil erosion and a reduction in biodiversity. Through farmer managed natural regeneration (FMNR), World Vision programs empower farmers to reverse land degradation. The simple act of pruning tree regrowth and managing land sustainably can turn small shrubs and stumps into mature trees, promoting soil restoration and increasing crop yields, firewood and livestock fodder." - Video Description

In addition, there is another excellent video on Pruning for Natural Regeneration.

If these videos have piqued your interest, be sure to see our listing of key resources on FMNR.
