Environment - Geoinformation, monitoring and assessment
Mapping coastal aquaculture and fisheries structures by satellite imaging radar. Case study of the Lingayen Gulf, the Philippines
Inventory and monitoring of coastal aquaculture and fisheries structures provide the necessary baseline data for decision-making on aquaculture and mariculture development, including regulatory laws, environmental protection and revenue collection. Mapping these structures can be performed with good accuracy and at regular intervals by satellite remote sensing, which allows observation of vast are... more

Environment - Energy and environmental technology
Bioenergy
Bioenergy in general and wood energy in particular are the dominant sources of energy for about half of the world’s population who are the poorest of the poor, and who use this energy mainly for cooking. They have very limited access to other forms of energy such as electricity or liquid fuels.

Environment - Energy and environmental technology
Bioenergy : Committee on Agriculture
Clean and safe energy services are essential for achieving the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. However, around two billion people, mostly living in rural areas of developing countries, are still without electricity or other modern energy services and rely largely on burning fuelwood and charcoal to meet their basic cooking and heating needs. At the international level, petroleum-based... more
