2009 Africa

The International Permaculture Conference and Convergence (IPC) is a biennial global but grassroots gathering that has taken place in Africa this year for the very first time. The 9th IPC was a series of four events that took place in Southern Africa from the 18th of October to the 30th of November 2009 and were coordinated by the Rescope Programme from the warm heart of Africa, Malawi. IPC8 happened in Brazil in 2007 and IPC10 will take place in Jordan in 2011. The year in between the respective IPCs is left for regional convergences and conferences to take place. The four events that made up IPC9 were the International Permaculture Design Certificate (IPDC)
course that took place in Zimbabwe in the last two weeks of October, the IPC9 Convergence that took place from the 2nd to the 5th of November in Malawi, the IPC9 Conference that was held on the 6th of November in Malawi and finally the IPC9 Site Tours that happened in Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe in the last three weeks of November 2009. A brief report on each of the four events that made up IPC9 is given below with indications of where to get more information. Additional
