Regenerative agriculture creates climate resilience:

Evelyn shares why mixed regenerative farming is boosting her income; how climate change is already impacting her farm; and why young people innovating farming techniques is the future. Together they discuss why innovations in finance and payments for conservation are needed; how NGOs such as Practical Action can help bridge the gaps between bigger businesses and smallholder farmers; and what advocating for those hardest hit by climate change really means.

This podcast forms part of a short series on putting people at the heart of climate action and what Climate Justice can mean for business.

Climate change is affecting us all, but the most severe impacts are being felt by the most vulnerable people, who contribute least to the causes of the problem. Existing inequities – due to factors such as gender, race and income – exacerbate the risks to people’s lives and livelihoods. Inequity also affects people’s capacity and opportunity to participate in the transition to a green economy. Climate change is the defining issue of our time. How we respond can protect or undermine the human rights of people around the world. How business can act on climate change and deliver climate justice is central to our work.
