In 2014, Nara Chandra Babu Naidu made a trailblazing attempt to universalize Natural Farming practices, reaching 6 million farmers and converting 8 million hectares of land into natural farming fields through the Climate Resilient Zero Budget Natural Farming (CRZBNF) program.

Zero-budget farming is a set of farming methods that require no investment. Following in the footsteps of Andhra Pradesh, the Union Government incorporated ZBNF into the 2019-20 budget as a strategy to double farmer income. In December 2018, the Paris Peace Forum named the initiative one of the top ten projects in the world.

Nara Chandra babu Naidu was also given the rare honor of speaking at a special session of the United Nations Environment Programme. By 2024, the Government of Andhra Pradesh hopes to have 6 million farms and 8 million hectares of land converted from traditional synthetic chemical agriculture to Zero-Budget Natural Farming (ZBNF), making Andhra Pradesh the first state in India to practice 100% natural farming.

'No Poverty,' 'Clean Water and Sanitation,' 'Responsible Consumption and Production,' and 'Life on Land' are the program's key priority areas in relation to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The Sustainable India Finance Facility (SIFF), a creative collaboration between UN Environment, BNP Paribas, and the World Agroforestry Center, supports it and is led by Rythu Sadhikara Samstha (RSS), a not-for-profit organization created by the government to execute the ZBNF initiative.
