India is a country of superlatives. It is the second-most populous country globally, the world’s biggest democracy, and one of the fastest-growing economies. It is also rich in natural treasures and biodiversity. Balancing out a country ‘booming’ at such a rate is a delicate act and there are numerous challenges. Half of the population still works in agriculture relying on the production of rice, cotton, milk and other commodities. However, farm productivity is low, the impacts of climate change are becoming visible and water pollution from agrochemicals is still an issue. Regenerative Agroforestry counteracts those challenges by increasing farm profitability and climate resilience, and reducing the demand for chemical inputs. reNature aims to transform India’s farming sector in a way that it can support the country’s growth, whilst preserving its nature.
