Environmental Change in Lesotho
136,27 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Environmental Change in Lesotho identifies and analyzes the drivers of land-use change and the consequences of these changes on the livelihoods of rural land-users/managers. To accomplish this, a combination of tools from the social sciences and environmental fields were developed to identify causes and consequences of land-use change at selected levels, using a 'nested' approach. These methods were then applied to a case study of two villages in the Lowland region of Lesotho. This book is directed at environmental and social science experts, researchers, decision-makers, and development/aid workers interested in understanding the intricate human-environment relationship as it relates to land-use change in a changing biophysical, socio-economic, political and institutional context, coupled by HIV/AIDS, changing demographics, local perceptions and what is termed here 'dependency syndrome'.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The United States Coast Guard commissioned a new Keeper-class of coastal buoy tenders in the 1990's that are 175 feet (53 m) in length and named after Lighthouse keepers. Keeper Class cutters serve the Coast Guard in a variety of missions. Keeper Class tenders are tasked with maintaining aids to navigation (ATON), search and rescue (SAR), law enforcement (LE), migrant interdiction, marine safety inspections, environmental protection and natural resources management. Keeper Class cutters have limited ice breaking capability.

Membrane Engineering
79,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Modern membrane science and technology aids engineers in developing and designing more efficient and environmentally-friendly processes. The optimal material and membrane selection as well as applications in the many involved industries are provided. This work is the ideal introduction for engineers working in membrane science and applications (wastewater, desalination, adsorption, and catalysis), process engineers in separation science, biologists and biochemists, environmental scientists, and most of all students. Its multidisciplinary approach also stimulates thinking of hybrid technologies for current and future life-saving applications (artificial organs, drug delivery).

The rising global incidence of cancer diseases as documented in recent reports of the World Health Organization (WHO) is an issue of serious concern, because the increase is occurring at a faster rate of 48 % in developed countries and 52 % in developing countries. It is estimated that the burden of cancer in these countries will increase to epidemic proportions in the 21st century. Dietary, lifestyle, environmental and chemical factors have been suspected to play significant roles in the occurrence of cancers. Thus, to guard the health of people against mutagenic/carcinogenic agents, it is important to have a short term testing method to be used in screening agents for their carcinogenic/mutagenic potentials. This book has shown positive modification of short term bacterial assay for the screening of environmental pollutants and therapeutic agents for their mutagenic potentials. It also elucidated the modulatory roles of antioxidants (vitamins C and E) on the mutagenicity and toxicities of rifampicin as there is increased risk of developing tuberculosis when there is poverty, HIV/AIDS and poor environmental hygiene.

Desire and Decline
29,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Desire and Decline explores the privileged place of education in local, national, and global development discourses about population, HIV/AIDS, and environmental conservation. "Desire" signals the global consensus on the view that education is central to solving problems of development. "Decline", on the other hand, draws attention to the growing gap between those who have access to basic social services - such as education - and those who do not. Based on multiple periods of fieldwork on Mount Kilimanjaro, Frances Vavrus links local and global narratives about the potential of education to enhance development but also reveals its limitations in postcolonial countries experiencing the pressures of globalization. Vavrus concludes with portraits of local development initiatives that leave readers with a clear sense of the complexity of education's role in development, and the importance of political economic analysis for global population, health, and environmental policy.

This book is the second edited compilation of selected, refereed papers submitted to ERTEP 2007. The book is organized into 10 chapters along four of the key themes that were discussed at the conference: Environmental Health Management, Mining and Environment, Environmental Monitoring and Policy Development, and Susta- ability and Social Responsibility. It is hoped that the contents of the book will p- vide an insight into some of the environmental and health management challenges confronting the developing world and the steps being taken to address them. The ?rst three chapters under the Environmental Health and Management theme discusses issues related to food security and related environmental distress in sub- Saharan Africa. Chapter 1 argues that pervasive poverty and low agricultural p- ductivity are important factors in understanding food insecurity in the region, and broader global processes are examined. This chapter maintains that while poverty undermines individual and household access to suf?cient food through market p- chase, land inequalities, corruption, structural adjustment programs, civil con?ict, HIV/AIDS and the role of the World Trade Organization Agreement on Agric- ture are decisive. The authors argue that achieving food security in sub-Saharan Africa requires policies and actions that are integrated with efforts to reduce poverty, enhance livelihoods and incomes and increase agricultural output, while also paying attention to underlying structural factors that bear on agriculture in the region.
