Holistic Management

Holistic Management is a decision-making framework that ensures our decisions are economically, environmentally and socially sound i.e. the triple bottom line. Holistic Management enables you to develop a clear vision of the future you want.

Holistic Management has its roots in environmental management. But, as it is essentially a decision-making process it is applicable to people in all walks of life – households, both rural and urban based businesses, government and educational organisations. By changing the way we make our decisions, we can tackle many of the problems we face today.

How Holistic Management Works

The power to regenerate lands and livelihoods lies not in our practices but in how we manage the ecological, financial, and social dynamics. More than just a grazing system, Holistic Management is a framework for making decisions amidst the ever-changing conditions of the living world.

Specifically, it includes…

A Decision-Making Framework

For defining your north star, finding alignment amongst decision-makers, and ensuring your actions move you in the right direction

Planning Procedures

A set of procedures, specifically for those managing land and livestock, to help you plan in a simple and step-by-step manner

Nature Functions in Wholes

Taking a holistic perspective means paying attention to relationships between different aspects of the “whole.” When you manage your land resources, build biodiversity, or improve production, you can’t change or control one thing without impacting something else.

Understand Your Environment

All environments are not the same. Environments exist on different ends of a scale linked to humidity and how quickly dead vegetation breaks down. Tools respond differently in these environments.
