Roland Bunch has consulted on regenerative agriculture in 49 nations of Latin America, Asia and Africa. His book, Two Ears of Corn, A Guide to People-Centered Agricultural Improvement, has been published in ten languages and is one of the two or three all-time best-sellers on agricultural development programs in developing nations. First published in 1982, it was one of the earliest proponents of both what are now called "farmer-to-farmer extension" and "participatory technology development," or PTD.

This presentation will delve into Roland's recent work in Africa where he has spent the last six years combating famine in Mali, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique and Madagascar. His work has focused on the critical role of regenerative agriculture in mitigating this major world crisis that is currently affecting 20 million people.

Roland earned his degree in International Agricultural Development from the California State Polytechnic University. Among the honors he has received are nominations for the Global 500 Award, the End the Hunger Prize of the President of the United States, and the World Food Prize.
