Walkers Institute for Regenerative Research and Design (WIRRED) is a not-for-profit think tank, research centre and consultancy dedicated to the study of climate-smart agricultural practices. WIRRED is working towards the ongoing development of an educational centre, an ecosystem services consultancy, a financially viable eco-tourism and hospitality business and the creation of community-based livelihoods within the agro-tourism sector.
WIRRED works through leveraging partnerships to implement and scale regenerative agriculture programs and engage with the private sector through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). The organization believes that successful regenerative development requires a multi-sector network that includes farmers, academics, the community, industry leaders, investors, NGOs and policy makers, among others. At the centre of these partnerships is one common focus – a shared love for people, equity, equality and the environment.
