â€œDesertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert,â€ begins Allan Savory in this quietly powerful talk. And it's happening to about two-thirds of the worldâ€™s grasslands, accelerating climate change and causing traditional grazing societies to descend into social chaos. Savory has devoted his life to stopping it. He now believes -- and his work so far shows -- that a surprising factor can protect grasslands and even reclaim degraded land that was once desert.
Allan Savory works to promote holistic management in the grasslands of the world.
