The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) is a research and academic type of an institution established in 1975 with the mission to provide research-based policy solutions that sustainably reduce poverty and end hunger and malnutrition. It provides research-based policy solutions to sustainably reduce poverty and end hunger and malnutrition in developing countries. It is a research centre of the CGIAR Consortium, a worldwide partnership engaged in agricultural research for development.
C40 Cities is a network of the world's mega-cities committed to addressing climate change. In recognition of the fact that the largest cities of the world are the primary contributors to global greenhouse gas emissions, the network has conducted research into the co-benefits of sustainable city projects, examining and evaluating case studies from around the world, and across different sectors.
The UCSD Sky Imager is an instrument that helps in the forecasting of solar irradiance one to thirty minutes ahead of time. The instrument is built from commercially available off-the-shelf components but runs a proprietary data acquisition system. Intellectual Property Info: The system is available to license under copyright and includes: 1) Cabling diagram 2) Data acquisition system design and software 3) Power management board design 4) Mechanical drawings
According to this article, reliable advance information about likely meteorological conditions during an agricultural season potentially greatly benefits planning, risk management and productivity. This article reviews the present state of production and dissemination of meteorological long-range (seasonal) forecast information and the use of such products in agricultural applications. There has been rapid development of dynamical prediction systems in particular, and several centres routinely provide seasonal forecasts of rainfall and temperature with global coverage.
Urban development increases flood risk in cities due to local changes in hydrological and hydrometeorological conditions that increase flood hazard, as well as to urban concentrations that increase the vulnerability. The large-scale, global impacts due to climate variability and change could increase these risks. This paper presents the case of Can Tho, the biggest city in Mekong River Delta, Vietnam), which faces multiple future challenges, namely:
