India's Regenerative Water Movement : Andrew Millison
1:02:38Andrew Millison is one of the world's most known permaculture teachers. He travelled to India to document what he calls the worlds largest permaculture project, where 8000 villagers participated to build earthworks and reforest the land, which restored the water cycle to help the crops grow, and also brought back the rain.Time stamps for podcast:1:10 Learning about water Arizona.

Biotic pump -how forests create rain :Anastasia Makarieva
1:37:50Forests evapotranspire water vapor. When that vapor condenses to form clouds it creates a lessening of pressure which can then attract more moisture from the ocean. Anastasia Makarieva and Victor Gorshov discovered this effect called the Biotic Pump
Regreening the Sinai : Ties van der Hoeven
1:18:02An ambitious project to regreen the Sinai desert in Egypt is underway. It involves 1) restoring Lake Bardawil at the northern tip of the Sinai 2) turning the sediment from the lake into soil which is then used to jump start the regreening process in the desert. Creating temporary ecosystems in geodesic domes that catalyse the ecosuccession process 3) a shift in the rain and wind patterns that result from the regreening
Communities can protect themselves against floods and droughts : Minni Jain
1:17:20Minni Jain is the founder of the Flow Partnership, an organization that has helped thousands of communities in India and Britain protect themselves against floods and droughts, by the use of simple watercatchment structures that can slow, sink, and spread the rainfall as it comes down.
