Professor Tekalign Mamo

Lecture Theatre 5, The Diamond, 32 Leavygreave Road, Sheffield, S10 2TN
15:00 – 16:30, Admission Free

The The Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures have organised a seminar by Professor Tekalign Mamo as part of their 2017 Seminar Series.

Conventional agricultural practices place a strain on our soils. How can we change our approach to the management of our life-giving land to simultaneously improve the health of our ecosystems, feed our ever-increasing population, and adapt to a changing global climate?

Professor Tekalign Mamo has been credited with playing a critical role in Ethiopia’s agricultural renaissance. His efforts are said to have rehabilitated more than 15 million hectares of degraded land and benefitted more 11 million smallholder farmers. In this talk, Professor Mamo will share his experiences from Ethiopia, and his vision of how sustainable soil management will provide future resilience to the challenges of climate change.
