The International Permaculture Conference and Convergence, IPC10, September 2011

Posted by Rhamis Kent almost 7 years ago

The next International Permaculture Conference and Convergence, IPC10, will be held in Jordan across September 2011. The theme is "Plan Jordan ~ Water". The 1-day IPC10 Conference (open to all) and 4-day IPC10 Convergence (open to Permaculture Design

Topic: Rhamis will be discussing how the application of permaculture water harvesting earthworks infrastructure will be used to address the ecological challenges faced in Northern Somalia.  Of particular interest will be the Sanaag Region, which includes The Cal Madow Mountain Range. Cal Madow's environment has suffered greatly in recent years along with its ecology, much of which is unique to it. Only a fraction of the flora remains, and its distribution remains sparse and unprotected. Although local knowledge of natural resources endemic to the area is great, agricultural and social projects as well as United Nations and foreign-aided development schemes usually fail to consider or make use of this insight.
 
A severe drought in the region in the early part of the 21st century caused an 80% or greater loss of livestock, though two good rainy seasons in 2004–2005 helped restore the area. Over a 15-year period of analysis, from 1988–2003, there was a 52% loss of forest and a 40% loss of grassland, and a 370% increase in bare land. Soil erosion due to weather and human activities and clearing of wood and brush for such uses as charcoal and fuel are issues leading to degradation of the environment.
