I have always believed when India adopts permaculture, they will lead the world in the movement.

I am sure that comment was not meant in any way to be disrespectful but more a comment on Indias' huge potential to be a leading powerhouse with adopting more permaculture over modern conventional practices . Not to be taken as they have not been contributors already . I may be stretching the definition of permaculture but didn't the video mention this practice being a very old and perhaps abandoned system they were employing again , water capture on contours ? I think India can be acknowledged already for its contributions in leading the world , even in permaculture . Dr. Vandana Shiva is listed as one of Forbes most powerful women and she is very much involved in aspects familiar to permaculturists around the world starting with her support of the Chipko movement to save high elevation forests to capture , hold and clean water and sequestering organic matter , preventing erosion etc. and to this day she spearheads movements to save biodiversity and open pollinated seed genetics . She is one of the world leaders I would bow to , I don't care if she is officially recognized for it or not.
Australia is a huge leader in bringing movements to being globally recognized but I think these endeavours in India and other places around the world using terracing traditionally are just as much to be recognized . Kudos to them all .
