Permaculture design for Aral Sea watershed
Andrew Jones (2012), Permaculture Restoration of the Aral Sea Watershed, in Edelstein, Cerny & Gadaev (ed.) Disaster by Design: The Aral Sea and its Lessons for Sustainability (Research in Social Problems and Public Policy, Volume 20), Emerald Group Publishing Limited, pp.391-409
Sets out a design for a truly mammoth permaculutre project, the restoration of the highly-degraded Aral Sea watershed. Includes consideration of water, forestry, vegetation and human needs which would completely restore the shattered eco-system. If implemented, this would surely be the largest permaculture project in the world to date.
