Regenerating Rural and Agricultural Development: Lessons from the 2016 Cracking the Nut Conference
This handbook is a guide to lessons learned at the sixth Cracking the Nut event, hosted in Washington D.C. March 1 - 2, 2016. Sponsored in part by USAID, the Cracking the Nut 2016: Regenerating Rural and Agricultural Development conference brought together international development practitioners, agronomists, donors and private sector stakeholders from 49 countries to discuss and expand knowledge on regenerating deforested lands.
This handbook provides information on the lessons learned from the three main conference topics:
- Regenerating Rural and Agricultural Landscapes
- Financing Environmentally Sustainable Development
- Encouraging Investment in Climate-Smart Agriculture
Each topic section includes key lessons with explanations, as well as country specific examples of rural and agricultural regeneration practices. This document is meant to serve as a tool to share what was learned from conference participants about how to replenish deforested lands, finance environmentally sustainable development and encourage investment in climate-smart agriculture.
