That is an interesting question. There are almost limitless
possibilities and opportunities for putting permaculture to work in
Afganistan, post war, that is. Afganistan is very near the Hunza
area up in very high country, where people often live well in excess
of 100 years. Interesting crops they grow up there, apricots for
example. What will happen to the poppy fields when peace comes and
their farmers will have the opportunity to grow food/fiber/grass/grain
on that fertile land to ensure reliable, independent and sufficient
supplies for their people. Soil tilth & fertility, water and plant
resources, housing, energy & fuel are areas that will be worth looking
at for the long haul. Permaculture consultants and teachers would be
worth their weight in gold.
