    Sunday, January 1, 2012
    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    This document highlights recent advances in the use of climate information to manage risks and improve livelihoods, such as new partnerships and user-designed information platforms. It draws together and analyzes experiences from 17 case studies that capture the current state of knowledge and highlights research innovations. A problemsolving framework is used to demonstrate the challenges and opportunities facing disaster risk managers in using climate science.

  • Innovative approaches to gender and food security: insights, issue 82

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    Objective: 
    Sectors: 
    Approach: 

    Gender justice and ending hunger are closely entwined, interdependent goals. Solving hunger now and in the future involves challenging the current global development model which permits – and is driven by – inequality. Gender analysis shows that women are providers of food as producers, processors, traders, cooks and servers. However, despite their vast contribution, women are still often excluded or have limited access to resources, credit, information and markets, greatly limiting their productivity and food security.

  • Irrigation of Mediterranean Crops with Saline Water: From Physiology to Management Practices

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, February 4, 2005
    Objective: 

    This study examines the use of saline water for irrigation of Mediterranean crops. In regions affected by water scarcity such as the Mediterranean basin, water supplies are already degraded, or subjected to degradation processes, which worsen the shortage of water. Reduced water supplies induce restrictions on water uses and allocation policies among different user sectors. In such regions, the competition for scarce water resources among users will inevitably reduce the supplies of freshwater available for crop irrigation.

  • Using Carbon Capture and Storage CCS Techniques in Mulla Abdulla and Taza Power Plants to Mitigate the Impact of Climate Change

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, February 25, 2013
    Objective: 

    The aim of this work is to mitigate the impact of climate
    change by reducing the amount of CO2 emitted to the
    atmosphere in Mulla Abdulla and Taza power plants in
    Kirkuk/ Iraq using CCS techniques, and to calculate the
    cost of the system components.

  • Optimization Investigation of a Stand-Alone Hybrid Energy System Design in Kirkuk Technical College

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, July 20, 2015
    Objective: 

    In this paper a methodology has been developed for optimum planning of hybrid PV, Wind and diesel generator system with some battery backup in Kirkuk Technical College in Iraq. The local solar radiation, wind data and components database from different manufactures are analyzed and simulated in HOMER model to assess the technical and economic viability of the integrated system. Performance of each component was evaluated and sensitivity analysis was performed to optimize the system at different conditions.
