Permaculture's Global Response to Climate Change

Permaculture magazine
Monday, 23rd November 2015

We launch our latest book today, Permaculture and Climate Change Adaptation. It draws on successful case studies from across the world, demonstrating the efficacy of permaculture design on land-based and community projects.

Permanent Publications have launched their latest book, Permaculture and Climate Change Adaptation: Inspiring Ecological, Social, Cultural and Economic Responses by Dr. Gil Penha-Lopes of the centre for Ecology, Evolution and Environment (cE3c) Lisbon University, and Dr Thomas Henfrey, of cE3c and the Schumacher Institute, in the run up to COP21.

In collaboration with Good Works Publishing Cooperative and ECOLISE, and with funding from the EU research project BASE (Bottom-up Climate Adaptation), Permaculture and Climate Change Adaptation shares clear examples of how permaculture contributes to the global response to climate change. This ground-breaking book draws upon a range of case studies from all over the world, demonstrating the efficacy of permaculture design applied to land-based and community projects. It also includes many ideas and examples from ecovillages and the Transition movement.

Permaculture is a design system for sustainable human habitats and basis of a worldwide citizen-led movement present in over 100 countries. For decades, permaculture practitioners have devised creative responses to changes in local climatic conditions. In doing so, they have developed a collective knowledge and experience invaluable to global efforts to address climate change.

Permaculture complements the philosophy and perspectives of formal science and indigenous knowledge, and provides much needed evidence of climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies from across the globe, based on the diverse strategies and tools employed by practitioners.
