The Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR) model is the systematic regeneration of natural trees, which hinges on the ability of most indigenous tree species to regenerate or copping naturally.

The model was developed by World Vision International to address issues of environmental degradation and has been understood to be a low cost option to re-greening landscapes in anticipation of sustainable natural resource management for improved livelihoods

The FMNR Network is a coalition of multi stakeholder organizations aimed at scaling up the FMNR model as a means of improving food, nutrition and income security In Uganda. Currently, 18 member organizations subscribe to the FMNR model from whom a taskforce comprising of 9 member organizations was formed in July 2014 to establish the Network.
