    Agriculture is predominantly rainfed in Ghana where the climate is dominated by the inter tropical convergence zone and the hot, dry harmattan winds blowing from the Sahara.The south of the country experiences a bimodal rainfall regime, with a major and a minor rainfall season while the north of the country has a unimodal rainfall regime. Climate change scenarios show that mean temperatures in the Savannah Zones, predominantly in the north, can be expected to increase by approximately 2°C by 2050.

    Objective

    This manual is intended for natural resource managers who wish to plan for the potential and current impacts of climate change. It looks at impacts and mitigation measures (other than reducing emissions) by biome. The manual outlines practical ideas of how to begin increasing the resiliency of ecosystems and plan our protected areas in response to the threat of climate change. Some of these strategies are in line with conservation strategies that are not new, such as reducing fragmentation, building corridors, reducing threats, and increasing resiliency in general.

    Objective

    This paper considers the potential impacts of climate change on protected areas (PAs) and actions that can be taken to mitigate them. Recent research suggests that the types of environmental changes predicted in climatic models are now taking place. Studies of many animals and plants that show significant alterations in range or behaviour find that the most consistent explanation for these is climate change. These impacts may necessitate a fundamental rethinking in the approach to protection.

  • Technology Description: USC researchers have developed a nanocomposite membrane for removal of aqueous contaminants and salts. The membrane was synthesized by incorporating the nano-sized material graphene oxide (GO) into aromatic polyamide (PA) matrices. The GO-PA and similar composites can serve the entire spectrum of membrane technologies including microfiltration nanofiltration and ultrafiltration with enhanced water flux and improved fouling resistance compared to thin-film composite (TFC) polyamide (PA) membranes which dominate the current market.

  • Objective

    Background: Sensors currently used for detecting the presence of a given analyte such as a toxin in solution or in air require direct contact with a power supply. Distributed sensing systems or “sensor networks” are an emerging technology that promise the ability to wirelessly monitor and manipulate an environment via a spatially distributed network of small and inexpensive sensor nodes.
