Allan Savory is President and Co-founder of the Savory Institute in Boulder, Colorado.
"Desertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert," begins Allan Savory in this quietly powerful talk.

Savory has devoted his life to stopping it. He now believes -- and his work so far shows -- that a surprising factor can protect grasslands and even reclaim degraded land that was once desert.
