This reference work presents an authoritative review of microplastics as vectors of environmental contaminants and provides a comprehensive coverage of their ecotoxicological and toxicological effects. Divided into four sections, this book outlines the current analytical techniques and applications for sampling, processing analysis, and data reporting of microplastics pollution in the environment, explores microplastics degradation and interaction with chemical pollutants, discusses the fate and behaviour of microplastics in the environment, and provides valuable insights about prevention, regulation and remediation of microplastics pollution. Written by interdisciplinary expert academics and practitioners, this reference work will appeal to a wide readership of students, researchers and professionals interested in this field, including marine scientists, environmental scientists, analytical chemists, organic chemists, biochemists, biologists, polymer scientists, and toxicologists
The Pacific journal of Louis-Antoine de Bougainville, 1767-1768 by Louis-Antoine de Bougainville( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in Portuguese and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The French had sailed into the Pacific since the later seventeenth century and indeed completed several circumnavigations early in the following century, but the ocean remained largely a Spanish preserve until British navigators began to cross its vast expanse in the mid-1760s. France then became concerned that the British might establish its superiority in the area, and welcomed Louis de Bougainville's proposal for a voyage of exploration, which was undertaken in 1766-9. Bougainville's first task was to hand over to Spain a colony he had established on the Falkland Islands. This done, he sailed through the still imperfectly-known Straits of Magellan and into the poorly charted Southern Pacific. He made a number of discoveries in the south-west, but was much too late to discover Tahiti, where Samuel Wallis had preceded him by less than a year. Reports on Bougainville's reception there and on life in the island were to create wide interest and controversy in Europe. He then sailed through the Samoan Islands and on to Vanuatu, as far as the edge of the Australian Great Barrier Reef, and north towards New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. He made a number of discoveries, endeavouring to complete the inadequate charts of the times, and leaving his name to a number of features, the best known of which is the island of Bougainville. He returned home by way of the Dutch East Indies and the Indian Ocean. His voyage led to further French voyages to the Pacific, for which Bougainville acted as adviser. His achievements and his influence were recognized in his promotion to rear-admiral, his election to the Institut de France, and his appointment as a senator and count by Napoleon I. The bougainvillea flower, discovered during his voyage, was so named in his honour by the expedition's naturalist. Although Bougainville published an account of his voyage in 1771, his original journal was published only in 1977; the present volume makes the latter text available for the first time in English translation."--Jacket

Gender equality, economic policy and state resilience in the new state of Timor-Leste by Mônica Costa( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Gender-responsive budgeting (GRB) has become a global phenomenon, adopted by more than 90 countries including some fragile states. In 2008 the government of the fragile state of Timor-Leste committed to adopting GRB. This initiative posed particular technical, political and institutional challenges as Timor-Leste was emerging from a devastating humanitarian and political crisis. From the onset, the pursuit of GRB raised a degree of concern, with some cautioning against embarking on new approaches before establishing the fundamentals of economic policy and institution-building. In response, gender activists and feminist economists have proposed that the adoption of GRB can contribute to these fundamentals by improving outcomes for women and girls, growing the economy and contributing to peace-building. This thesis contributes to this debate by addressing the problem of whether GRB can promote gender equality and women's empowerment in the context of fragile states such as that of Timor-Leste

Gender-Focused Institutions in International Parliamentary Bodies: The Case of the Women's Caucus of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Portuguese-Speaking Countries( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract Gender-focused bodies within international institutions play a significant role in promoting gender equality and women's empowerment. The particular contribution of those in international parliamentary institutions, however, has been a relatively neglected area of research. This article investigates the launch of a caucus of women parliamentarians in a relatively unknown international parliamentary institution, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Portuguese-speaking countries. It investigates the institution's relevance and the challenges to women's organisation within it

Women acting for women: the case of gender responsive public finance in Timor-Leste by Mônica Costa( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In Timor-Leste women constitute close to 30 per cent of the legislature, a relatively high figure in the world and in the region. But to what extent has the presence of women in parliament contributed to progress towards gender equality? In other words, has descriptive representation of women led to substantive representation? In this paper we argue that the passage of a parliamentary resolution on gender-responsive budgeting in Timor-Leste was an act of substantive representation and we use a range of data to examine what made this act possible. Beyond the number of women elected, the development of gender-focused parliamentary institutions such as a cross-party women’s caucus was crucial to the victory of the resolution. We contribute to the relatively small literature on such gender-focused parliamentary institutions and their role in supporting critical actors and enabling critical acts. We suggest there was a ‘critical juncture’, whereby new institutions were being created in a new country at a time when international agencies and donors were conduits for norms of gender equality. Characteristics of the women’s movement that enabled it to speak with a united voice were also important, as were networks between the women’s movement, women’s machinery in government, and critical actors in parliament and the executive
