This unit covers the adoption and adaptation of new and alternate practices in agricultural and privately managed land systems; with a focus to deliver sustainable and regenerative outcomes. This is done by exploring the social, economic, and environmental drivers and barriers to adoption as well as looking at the interventions and innovations themselves. The content of this unit operates at both the broadscale (top-down) and individual landholding (bottom-up) levels, and should be useful to those interested in natural resource management, landholder engagement, and extension services.
- Working with communities: foundational concepts, ethics and relationships
- Understanding farm context: landscapes and industry
- Understanding your landholder: personal, social, economic and cultural factors
- Working with your landholder: co-innovation for identifying issues and solutions
- Demonstrating success in regenerative agriculture: assessing, refining and building on success
- Policy considerations for implementing regenerative change
