Regenerative agriculture is a panacea to climate change and food insecurity. The loss of fertile soil and biological diversity, indigenous seeds and knowledge threatens our future survival. Soil scientists have reported that the current rates of soil destruction within 50 years we will not only suffer serious damage to public health due to quantitatively degraded food supply characterized by diminished nutrition and loss of important trace minerals, but we will literally no longer have enough arable topsoil to feed ourselves.
Without protecting and regenerating the soil of cultivated farmland, pastureland, and forest land, it will be impossible to feed the world, keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius, or halt the loss of biodiversity. In this regard with financial support from Earth Rising Foundation, the Association for Biodiversity Conservation and Rural Development (ABCARD) has engage in regenerative agriculture by using technology that will revitalize the soil and the environment. ABCARD has nursed and will distribute over 4000 (avocado and acacia) seedlings combined to farmers around the Lake Barombi Mbo Area to contribute in addressing the issues of climate change, poor soil and food insecurity.
