Impact of Farmer-Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR) on local farmers

Through its Transforming Household Resilience in Vulnerable Environments (THRIVE) initiative, World Vision is using the FMNR approach to restore and improve agricultural, forested and pasture lands. FMNR is based on encouraging the systematic regrowth of existing trees or self-sown seeds. It can be used wherever there are living tree stumps with the ability to coppice (re-sprout), or seeds in the soil that can germinate.

World Vision's National Director for Zambia, John Hasse, interacts with Peter, a Chairperson of the FMNR Committee in Mpika, on the impact of THRIVE's FMNR approach during a monitoring visit in Muchinga Province.
