  3. This is a very great opportunity for us Malawians to host the event, as our population growth rate is growing , putting pressure on our limited resources, hence disturbing the existing natural systems. Let us mimic what nature does, to cope with changes using permaculture approach – a holistic systematic design to create sustainable human habitat ei living harmony with nature/ an inspiration for caring the earth, people, sharing the surplus, reduction in energy consumptions and having resilient communities with food secure and sovereinity and climate adaptation technologies!
