Expert Answer:

Buds are produced on the parent body in budding, each of which then grows into a new organism. These buds then get detached from the parent body. In regeneration, no buds are produced, but the cut part of the body can give rise to a new organism. The new organisms produced is not attached to the parent body in this case, but each cut part develops into a new individual.

Budding is a method of reproduction. Regeneration on the other hand is both a method of reproduction as well as defence.
