I lead Regreening Africa, which is regenerating land in eight African countries from Ethiopia to Senegal. Community and evidence driven, it deploys local knowledge, as well as agroforestry and water and soil management, such as composting and Zai pits, to restore 1 million hectares of land for 500,000 people. I co-developed the stakeholder approach to risk-informed and evidence-based decision-making, a demand-driven, tailored, interactive engagement for co-negotiation of decisions for mutually agreed upon outcomes. I have 13 years’ experience in natural resource management, ten in global tropics with a focus on Africa. I also have extensive experience with the Western Australian State Government and land care groups, working on estuary, catchment and river projects.
