Regenerative ranching aims to recover the fertility of soils and to restore the nutrient, energy and water cycles. It's foundations are planned rotational grazing practices, locally adapted livestock genetics, habitat restoration for wildlife, and erosion prevention. Together, these practices result in resilient and productive ecosystems capable of sustaining productive activities while conserving their biodiversity and serving as carbon sinks.
With the support of the French Development Agency (AFD), FMCN strives to promote training models, technical assistance and financial inclusion that permit scaling the implementation of livestock practices with a regenerative focus. The project will begin by focusing on four of the most important ranching states in Mexico: Chiapas, Chihuahua, Jalisco, and Veracruz, with the goal to scale up to a national level. GANARE operates within FMCN as a sub-project of the Private Lands Conservation Project.
