THE HANDS RESTORING THE EARTH: Tales of a Collective Adventure

Livelihoods Venture
1

Eschewing technical jargon, this is the living, breathing story of a unique venture by the Livelihoods impact investment funds and their partners to restore damaged ecosystems and reinvent more sustainable methods of farming.

Right across the world from Sumatra to Senegal, Madagascar and the Ganges Valley, rural communities whose livelihoods depend directly on the climate, the soil, the water and the plant and animal diversity of their environment have proved that it is possible to rebuild an ecosystem and alleviate poverty at the same time. If there is one lesson to be learnt from Livelihoods’ experience in the field and its bold experiments, it is that seemingly disparate worlds can find common cause.

One might imagine that major international companies and isolated villages in Africa, Asia and Latin America have nothing in common. That there is a yawning gulf between NGOs driven by ideals and businesses driven by profit, between the so-called private sector and the public interest. But in practice, the ongoing adventure of Livelihoods is proof positive that this apparent gulf can be bridged to form productive and beneficial alliances.
