Program overview

It is projected by many international bodies India will soon become the most populated nation on the planet with some 1.4 billion citizens.  At the same time become one of the largest world economies within the near future.  India is the world’s largest practicing democracy with a thriving diverse population accommodating all complexities of socio-economic-ethnic-educational-religious-historical backgrounds.  
 
How will this nation, which has signed the COP21 United Nations climate change and sustainable development Paris Agreement protocols, achieve world-class environmental, economic, and social development goals?  Today’s guests are representatives of thousands of Indian NGO thought leaders, strategists, and practitioners “of the possible”. These experts will share their ideas about possible paths forward to helping India become a world leader in rural development by enhancing the quality of life for all citizens through organic farming.

Program overview

We are featuring one of the fastest growing word-wide agricultural practices and innovations known as “Regenerative Agriculture”. The on-line Journal Regenerative Agriculture:  Cool the Planet; Feed the World describes the world-wide movement in the following narratives.  
 
Regenerative Agriculture is to address the loss of the world’s fertile soil and biodiversity, along with the loss of indigenous seeds and knowledge, which poses a mortal threat to humanity’s  future survival. According to soil scientists, at current rates of soil destruction (i.e. decarbonization, erosion, desertification, chemical pollution), within 50 years the planet will not only suffer serious damage to public health due to a qualitatively degraded food supply characterized by diminished nutrition and loss of important trace minerals, but individual countries will literally no longer have enough arable topsoil to feed its citizens. Without protecting and regenerating the soil on the  four billion acres of cultivated farmland, 14 billion acres of pasture and range land, and 10 billion acres of forest land, it will be impossible to feed the world, keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius, or halt the loss of biodiversity.
 
According to leading agricultural production experts the key to regenerative agriculture is that it not only “does no harm” to the land but actually improves it, using technologies that regenerate and revitalize the soil and the environment. Regenerative agriculture leads to healthy soil, capable of producing high quality, nutrient dense food while simultaneously improving, rather than degrading land, and ultimately leading to productive farms, healthy communities, and vibrant economies. It is dynamic and holistic, incorporating permaculture and organic farming practices, including conservation tillage, cover crops, crop rotation, composting, mobile animal shelters, and pasture cropping to increase food production, farmers’ income, while  stabilizing existing and creating new topsoil.
