What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Grasslands are vast landscapes occupying 5 billion hectares of land. They have the capacity, if properly managed, to address some of humanity's most urgent challenges such as water and food insecurity, poverty, and climate change. Currenty they are desertifying at alarming rates. Holistic Management of grasslands results in the regeneration of soils, increased productivity and biological diversity, as well as economic and social well being.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Land to Market Program

Empowering people to make informed food and clothing purchases while healing the environment. Our new Land to Market (L2M) program is a grassroots and collaborative program that will enable consumers to identify food and fashion items derived from livestock managed through practices verified to enhance water, soil, and climate.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Improved land health due to holistic, regenerative practices, as well as holistic policy design and aligned incentives, results in increased soil carbon, more soil water holding capacity, a substantial increase in forage production and biological diversity, and more profits.

A collaborative, entrepreneurial approach to facilitating large-scale restoration of the world's grasslands through Holistic Management. Local Entrepreneur Pastoralists around the world managing livestock are uniquely positioned to influence the health of these landscapes. Savory Institute and its global Network are changing this landscape through the teaching and practice of Savory Holistic Management.

Entrepreneurial solutionaries around the world are joining forces with the Savory Institute to realize the needed scale of grasslands regeneration. With a deep understanding of their socio- cultural, economic, political and ecological contexts, and the training and tools provided by the Savory Institute, these leaders reach out to land owners and managers to promote the benefits of regenerative practices and provide training in Holistic Management. Supported by the Savory Institute, they also engage with local policy makers, NGOs, investors, and market partners to build awareness and collaborations to help remove barriers and create enhanced conditions for success.

We are on the brink of affecting major change at the landscape level. The Savory Network strategy seeks to influence the management of 1 billion hectares by 2025 through the establishment of 100 Hubs. We may very well find ourselves in 2025 with 200 or 1,000 Hubs! It is then that the impact of this work will have reached a scale so large and an effect so profound, that we will see the reversal of the challenges and threats humanity faces today.
