INDICI DELLA FAME

INDICI DELLA FAME

Gli ultimi eventi — siccità, corsa globale agli investimenti in terreni agricoli, fluttuazione dei prezzi dell’energia e shock nelle forniture energetiche – mettono in evidenza la scarsità di risorse da cui dipendiamo per garantire l’approvvigionamento alimentare mondiale. Diventa sempre più chiaro che sfamare in modo sostenibile 9 miliardi di persone [...]

 
LE RISORSE IDRICHE

LE RISORSE IDRICHE

L’acqua è una risorsa scarsa, per quanto rinnovabile. Come ricorda la Banca Mondiale, possiamo contenerla, incanalarla, raccoglierla, purificarla, impacchettarla, trasportarla e trasformarla, ma non possiamo “produrla”. Questa semplice osservazione conduce a una complessa verità: gestire e governare la risorsa-acqua e il suo utilizzo rappresenta una delle più grandi sfide che [...]

 
Acque di transizione: ricerca, gestione e comunità locali (2012)

Acque di transizione: ricerca, gestione e comunità locali (2012)

The challenge of proteomics, the next frontier of biological and biomedical research, is essentially based on archetypal “Analytical Chemistry” strategies: separation and qualitative (identification) and quantitative analysis. Identification of the proteome expressed in different tissues of mussels is important to understand many different biological, physiological and ecological aspects that may [...]

 
Model and Application for the Water Quality Evaluation

Model and Application for the Water Quality Evaluation

Water quality evaluation benefits monitoring the water quality, utilizing and developing water resources rationally, providing a basis for the planning of water pollution control strategies, and predicting the future trend of water environment scientifically. This paper proposes a combination approach that can be used to incorporate two or more water [...]

 
Cambiamenti climatici

Cambiamenti climatici

An interesting synthesis paper was published recently looking at the global perspective of water and energy inputs in food production (Khan and Hanjra, 2008). The main findings in this review are repeated here: · Loss of natural habitat on agriculturally usable land (Green et al., 2005). · Increase in continental [...]

 
Key Environmental Indicators

Key Environmental Indicators

]Measuring changes in the global environment and keeping track of these changes is an important fi rst step in raising awareness and addressing issues of concern. Although, as Einstein said, “not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted”, today we often need to [...]

 
The Water Footprint Assessment Manual

The Water Footprint Assessment Manual

Human activities consume and pollute a lot of water. At a global scale, most of the water use occurs in agricultural production, but there are also substantial water volumes consumed and polluted in the industrial and domestic sectors. Water consumption and pollution can be associated with specific activities, such as [...]
