Regen10: Farmers at the centre of the transition to regenerative food systems for people, nature, and climate
Regen10 is a multi-stakeholder collaborative platform aimed at scaling regenerative food systems globally within a decade. The platform’s inception was celebrated at COP27.
The initiative puts farmers at the heart of a global effort to transform food systems so that by 2030 over 50% of the world’s food can be produced in a way that drives positive outcomes for people, nature, and climate. It is based on the principle of deep inclusion to ensure no one is left behind and informed by a science-based approach.
Regen10 will drive alignment and convergence of existing food and farming sector initiatives and scale-up collective action by bringing together farmers, businesses, investors, indigenous people, NGOs, and policy makers to accelerate system change.
In this context, WFO is the convenor of the farmers globally to expand the Regen10 footprint beyond the existing partners and generate opportunities for farmers and their organisations across the globe.
WFO actively participates in each of the three hubs that make up the Regen10 initiative:
- Within the Framework Workstream, WFO is in charge of co-designing a farmer-centric approach to regenerative food systems, ensuring that the farmers’ voices are heard and duly considered through farmers’ consultations. Once the framework has been compiled with specific indicators, WFO will oversee a campaign to embrace it and a capacity-building program to enable farmers to adopt it.
- WFO contributes to the Landscape Hub by gathering data and evidence from existing initiatives across all Members to learn how best to integrate and scale regenerative practices.
- Within the Global Hub, WFO ensures the farmers inform the creation of an inclusive, global collaborative platform to engage widely and to identify how policy, business, finance, research, and capacity-building can best support approaches that deliver positive outcomes for people, nature and climate.
Lastly, as a member of the Core Partners Group, WFO participates in the Steering Committee.
Regen10 is coordinated by the Meridian Institute and supported by The Rockefeller Foundation and IKEA Foundation. Founding partners include WFO, the Food and Land Use Coalition (FOLU), the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), Leaders Quest, Meridian Institute, SYSTEMIQ, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).
