    This chapter presents some emergent observations from applying standardized survey instruments at the farm and landscape scales, working in partnership with regenerative landholders. It discusses these observations of regenerative landscape managers and their transformed social, financial and ecological outlooks. The chapter explores the opportunities for the regenerative initiatives to represent viable sustainable agricultural enterprises. It considers the potential for upscaling these findings to the broader agricultural sector and focuses on some of the likely publicprivate benefits of implementing regenerative landscape management regimes Australia wide. The number of regenerative landscape managers involved in the production of food and fibre is relatively small, compared to Australias estimated 135,000 farmers and graziers. The farmers management ideals and goals for their regenerative landscape management journey are documented as phases over time. In addition, successful regenerative farmers have developed an understanding of climate variability and its effects and the vulnerability of their enterprises to a changing climate.
