Empowering sustainable farming and rangeland restoration
Meat Naturally encourages management that mimics natural wildlife movements and embraces and adds dignity to rural lives by "modernising" traditional livestock management systems. By providing flexible but consistent market access, and enabling African communal farmers to capitalise on market prices without incurring market risks.
Due to the relative resilience of grassland and savannah systems, Meat Naturally’s efforts can build community and national food security and climate adaptation support in less than a decade, and in some cases, within only a few years. Benefits will be sustained through market access innovations of mobile auctions and mobile meat processing units that operate in communal areas.
Conservation South Africa was the founder and initial incubator of Meat Naturally. It pioneers research and tools that Meat Naturally adopts and shares with other clients as a way of sustainably amplifying impact to other areas facing similar conservation challenges
Peace Parks Foundation & Conservation International entered into an MOU with MN in January 2018 to co-invest in growing a Herding for Health programme in Southern Africa's Transfrontier Conservation Areas (TFCAs) across 5 countries.
The SEED Africa Awards 2019 in Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe and SEED South Africa Climate Adaptation Awards 2019 in South Africa are sponsored by the Government of Flanders.
