Allan Savory said: “Holistic management restores grasslands and healthy grasslands lead to carbon sequestration, drought resilience, food security and financially viable communities. I believe the solution to these pressing world issues is that management of our land, livestock and people must be holistic. Livestock is not the problem but how those livestock are managed, and the management must change,” External link

Allan Savory said: “We can take enough carbon out of the atmosphere and safely store it in the grassland soils for thousands of years, and if we just do that on about half the world’s grasslands, we can take us back to pre-industrial levels while feeding people.

Allan Savory said: “If we accept that it is management that is causing desertification and climate change, then redoubling our efforts on the measures that address symptoms of desertification/mega-fire/climate destabilisation feedback loops, will guarantee suffering beyond imagination for future generations. If we don’t address the cause of either desertification or climate change, then we can only continue destabilising our climate, ever more violent weather, rising seas, expanding deserts, social breakdown, violence, religious conflict, emigration across borders all culminating in the global collapse of civilisation as we know it. On the other hand, a demand for our institutions to change management and thus address the cause of desertification and climate change, offers hope,” External link

Anja Karliczek explains: “The states and people of Africa are not responsible for climate change, but they are among the main victims. It is therefore also our responsibility, as an industrial and innovative country, to work together with the local people to develop solutions in order to master the consequences of climate change. Africa cannot cope with the climate crisis on its own any more than we can. Regions like the sub-Saharan zone, where it is already far too dry, are particularly hard hit. Fertile land in particular is becoming increasingly scarce there. We therefore want to advance research in order to further develop innovative, climate-adapted solutions for sustainable land use and thus preserve fertile land. It is important to us that all local stakeholders are closely involved in the research projects – from smallholders to regional authorities . With targeted further training measures, we want to bring effective instruments and measures into widespread use and thus enable the creation of jobs in the long term. ” External link
