Regenerative Grazing for Climate, Ecosystem, and Human Health (COP27 document)


Leading up to COP27 in Egypt, and as members of the Global Evergreening Alliance, the Savory Institute contributed towards the development of a document aimed at educating and encouraging world leaders to support regenerative grazing and silvopastoral systems as part of their conference initiatives.

This document has been developed by colleagues from a range of institutions who are interacting with the Global Evergreening Alliance, Evergreening the Earth Campaign (, Target 6 on grazing lands and silvopastoralism systems. The Target Action Group has identified a global rangelands restoration target to regenerate a healthy grass-tree balance on 650 m ha of degraded pasturelands with an annual sequestration drawdown target of 3.6 Gt CO2-eq by 2050 while enhancing ecosystem functions and services and improving livelihoods.
