Appropedia

Appropedia is a site to develop and share collaborative solutions in sustainability, poverty reduction and international development through the use of sound principles and appropriate technology, original research and project information.






Source for Appropedia logo

Even though Appropedia is a wiki, it is not an encyclopedia. Appropedia welcomes original research, how-to's, literature reviews and more.
The idea is to document personal and organizational experiences and ideas to solve planetary issues.

Permaculture.info has been down for a couple of weeks, and I haven't heard from the admin. There's a lot of good info on the site, so I hope all is well.

We keep backups of the Appropedia wiki, and make them publicly available - always good to have backups! We also have several admins, which helps to share the load - but always looking for more help, to enable us to develop the site more.

I just realized that Permies.com has a thread (maybe more than one?) mentioning Appropedia. I thought I'd mention that I think it's a very good and definitely evolving site:
http://www.appropedia.org/Welcome_to_Appropedia

I like that they explore concept-projects over time and make every attempt to report on them accurately and honestly.

Sustainability, resource conservation, green practices, self-reliance and community self-reliance.

The site has reportedly had 75-million views
