Adopting and scaling up regenerative farming practices can help us improve soil health and water services, putting in motion the transition to sustainable food systems. Regenerative farming pratices contribute to good soil health and contribute to ecosystem functions. Direct benefits to farmers are increasingly understood. However, downsteam and large-scale benefits are less understood.
Join this session at World Water Week to learn about soil health and water services, what limits progress, and the opportunities to scale up approaches that safeguard food and water.
