Fossil fuels and livestock grazing are often targeted as major culprits behind climate change and desertification. The bigger problem is our mismanagement of resources. Livestock grazing is not the problem; it’s how we graze livestock.
Holistic Management: A Commonsense Revolution to Restore Our Environment outlines Savory's paradigm-changing vision for reversing desertification, stemming the loss of biodiversity, eliminating fundamental causes of human impoverishment throughout the world, and climate change. The long-anticipated new edition is written for new generations of ranchers, farmers, eco and social entrepreneurs, and development professionals working to address global environmental and social degradation.
An introduction to Holistic Management
Holistic Management is a systems-thinking approach for managing resources developed by Allan Savory decades ago after observing the devastation of desertification in his native Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). Properly managed livestock are key to restoring the world’s grassland soils, the major sink for atmospheric carbon, and minimizing the most damaging impacts on humans and the natural world.
