Thus, between 2008 and 2018, the impacts of disasters cost the agricultural sectors of developing country economies over $108 billion in damaged or lost crop and livestock production.Over 34 percent of crop and livestock production loss in LDCs and LMICs is traced to drought, costing the sector $37 billion overall.
Based on their calculations, cannabis production results in over 2,000 kilograms of carbon dioxide emitted for every kilogram of product (defined as dried flowers), and its legalization has had a measurable effect on Colorado's greenhouse gas output.
The research highlights how global food systems are becoming more energy intensive, reflecting trends in the retail, packaging, transport and processing sectors, whose emissions are growing rapidly in some developing countries.
If we’re honest, it’s a lot more than we’d prepared for.Since half the known universe would be out for blood if we didn’t ask the obvious question, we took a little detour of our own to start things off.So it’s really nice that we’re able to bring in people from outside.
The funding from Germany's KfW development bank will support FAO's efforts to build the resilience of resource-poor producers, pastoralists and fishers in three of the world's most food insecure countries - the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Somalia and Yemen, work undertaken in partnership with other UN agencies.
Today, though, unveiled a new service: Camera to Cloud, which allows multiple people to start working on a shot the second the director films it, greatly reducing the number of people on set and increasing the number who can contribute from a safe, socially (very) distant place.
19 January, 2021, Rome/Berlin - Innovative solutions in agri-food systems helped households and countries contain disruptions in food supply chains during the COVID-19 pandemic, and more will be required to "build back better and build back greener", FAO's Director-General QU Dongyu said today.
“They produce this, I think, very eye-catching and also strong message that these two types of stocks—the biomass stock and anthropogenic mass—they are actually at a crossover point more or less in 2020, plus or minus a couple of years,” says social ecologist Fridolin Krausmann of the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna, who wasn’t involved in the research but was a peer reviewer for the paper.
Paramount among these reasons is the support of China’s and Taiwan’s governments to build up their manufacturing industries, mass-produce selected products, and increase exports.The number of Chinese manufacturers of bicycles or bike products increased from 38 in 1978 to 1,081 by 1995.
The battery described in the paper uses a relatively conventional lithium-ion electrode chemistry: a lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide (NMC) cathode paired with artificial graphite for its anode.
The industry is looking to expand by farming in more exposed locations, but NIWA aquaculture scientist Dr Javed Khan says such growth is likely to be constrained unless new approaches are taken in the hatcheries that supply the juvenile fish to the farms.
The paper, written by Dr Stenton-Dozey along with NIWA scientist Jeffrey Ren, Phil Heath, formerly of NIWA, and Leo Zamora from the Cawthron Institute and published in the New Zealand Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research, had its origins in a four-year NIWA research programme into IMTA around salmon farms in the Marlborough Sounds.
Tessera has spent the past two years developing a new class of molecular manipulators capable of doing lots of things Crispr can do—and some that it can’t, including precisely plugging in long stretches of DNA.It’s not gene editing, says von Maltzahn.

Van Oort says the amount of time a well is closed doesn’t really affect how much damage the shut-in inflicts on the reservoir.If producers have to repeatedly shut the well, the damage can compound over time and reduce productivity even more.
With federal stockpiles nearly exhausted, public health officials are pleading with the Trump administration to use the Defense Production Act to lead a wartime mobilization of US industry to make the masks desperately needed by healthcare workers.
