My Gosh! have you thought about doing your own research and not relying on a bunch of Yahoo members to do your homework or business assignment?
There is a farmer here in Virginia who writes books on it and has an awesome farm. He gets about 400 cow days per acre on his farm compared to 80 cow days per acre on the average farm in his area that uses conventional methods.

The limks below should keep you busy for awhile!!
I cannot find your other 2 questions that you say you asked?


dont know if this is your question but it is about autosuficient and sustainable urbanization ,in any case if you are into sustainable devellopment this is one way of how it is done .

And Permaculture is an Organization ,but the concept is Global and countries do not have the same laws .
Are you in Europe,India ,China Or Africa ,this forum is used by the English speaking World.

WHY we should move towards agro urbanization.

They did some experiments with rats in highrise building conditions and after the 3rd story they began to get weird
by the time they were on twenty they went insane and ate their own babies .

this gives you some idea what the bosses must be like in the penthouse offices

So 3 stories is a reasonable healthy hight for humans they have discovered BOTH MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH

so we cannot put to many people on top of each other
technically it is an impossible task to ensure a continues supply of good air for everybody
and the mental effects are drastic ,
but we can blend people into and under the landscape
there is an Architect who designed a city in China that blended totally into the landscape ,the farmland ending on top of all the equal level roofs ,with the farmers moving about on bridges

All the rooms would have the sun at least once a day,The city to utilize all their own byproducts as gas for cooking or compost
With solar energy to power the lot

The land above would produce all the food and meat for the city

A totally autosuficient concept ,with argiculture build in in a sustainable way.

Very technical and advanced
it is talked about on this youtube at the end
So the answer is urbanisation incorporated with agriculture
Agro urbanization,coupled to Agro forestry.
food and animals with in forests
and people hidden 3 levels underneath the farms ,all housing having what is called living roofs(have done some myself with pasture and goats on the roof ,and seen many of these) ,with pasture and vegetables ,this would also keep the dwellings cool.

Montezuma looked out of his window one day and saw all his peasants in huts of adobe as a blemish on his panorama ,and he ordered the people to hide themselves beneath beautifull flowers (deoderant was not so big in those days),and so the central Americans were motivated to build living roofs ,turning their village in to a garden with themselves hidden with in ,So the idea is by no means original
Babylon was doing very similar things using sophistcated building methods and stone

This concept can spread into the country with out depleting it
leaving room for expansion
Permaculture ,is less technical but the same principals are included

It is a collection of sustainable ideas from around the world coupled to present level of knowledge
ideally suited for those who want to get back to the country and build a autosuficient situation for themselves and the family or a comunity .

People plant rather for the quality of life and to feed their families, than for the market ,so the motivation and the manner are totally different from ordinary agriculture .

Although the basic concept of Permaculture also applies to Organic and sustainable farming,

Utilising soil manegement ,and mulching

The utilisation of space is more concentrated ,thinking in cubic and vertical terms instead or merely horizontal on the plain ,

Having many principle to follow such as utilizing all resoures and following and enhancing energy flows ,
for example the ditch around the house catches the rain water and leads it through the chicken house where it cleans and picks up the manure to deposit it in the vegetable patch

Permaculture means permanent agriculture
a concept put forward by Bill Mollisson in the 60`s

Which offers practical solutions for energy systems ,infrastructure ,inteligent design in housing,
animal shelter ,water systems and sustainable agricultural practises.
With the world and it`s history as it`s source
From the chinampas of Mexico to the teraced gardens of the Andes.
From the dessert whadis to the steppes of Russia.
Covering all climatic conditions temporal, dessert, humid and dry tropics.
with chapters on soil ,Water harvesting and land design,Bio diversity
Earth working ,Spirals in nature,Trees and water ,utilising energy flows,
Strategy for an alternative nation

The Permaculture designers manual by Bill Mollison,which cost about 40 dollars.
and is the best all round book you can get,on Environmental design,.(tagiari publishing, tagariadmin@southcom.com.au)
this book also has many gardening tips,bio-gas,companion planting and ideas for structures ,how to cool down houses in hot climates ,how to warm up houses in cold climates with out using technology but rather by design.

The Australian Council of Built Environment Design Professions (BDEP) publishes its Environmental Design Guide to assist designers to incorporate Sustainable practices into developments. It is three very large volumes of loose leaf service well worth subscribing to if you are a building design professional. Crammed with useful information. It is available from the Royal Australian Institute of Architects .. see http://www.architecture.com.au/i-cms?pag...

The Building Code of Australia now incorporates measures to promote sustainable development. These measures are adopted by the various States in Australia as law. See http://www.abcb.gov.au/

Local Governments within Australia incorporate their own Development Control Policies which adopt measures to promote sustainable development. See for example ... http://www.kogarah.nsw.gov.au/www/html/1...

Local Govt also implements controls over active development. See for example http://www.kogarah.nsw.gov.au/www/html/1...

What is lacking in all of this is the commitment from 4 billion inhabitants of the planet to lower carbon gas emmissions... but I suppose you already know about that.
I'll just take 2 point.
