The value of forests : payments for ecosystem services in a green economy( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) describes the situation where the user of an environmental service, such as water purification, pays the landowners who provide that service. For PES to exist, there must be a clearly defined user and supplier, as well as a number of other necessary conditions, which are defined in this document using a summary of current sources. Particular attention is paid to how these conditions currently obtain within the UNECE region. The range of forest environment services is explored through fourteen detailed case studies, which examine best practice in promoting PES. Political and public relations implications of PES are discussed at length, and recommendations include the need for clarity about where PES may be a useful tool in moving towards a green economy and where other methods may be more appropriate."--[P. ii]
Save and grow : cassava : a guide to sustainable production intensification by R. H Howeler( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This guide is the first on the practical application of FAO's "Save and Grow" model of agriculture to specific smallholder crops and farming systems. It comes as cassava production intensifies worldwide, and growers shift from traditional cultivation practices to monocropping, higher-yielding genotypes, and greater us of agrochemicals. Intensification carries great risks, including soils nutrient depletion and upsurges in pests and diseases. The guide shows how ecosystem-based "Save and Grow" approaches and practices can help tropical developing countries to avoid the risks of unsustainable intensification, while realizing cassava's potential for producing higher yields, alleviating hunger and rural poverty, and contributing to national economic development."--Publisher description
Marine protected areas : country case studies on policy, governance, and institutional issues : Japan, Mauritania, Philippines, Samoa by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Fisheries and Aquaculture Technical Paper presents case studies of the policy, governance and institutional issues of marine protected areas (MPAs) in Japan, Mauritania, the Philippines and Samoa. It is the second of four in a global series of case studies on MPAs. An initial volume provides an analysis and synthesis of all the studies. The set of global MPA case studies was designed to close a deficit in information on the governance of MPAs and spatial management tools, within both fisheries management and biodiversity conservation contexts. The studies examine governance opportunities in and constraints on the use of spatial management measures at the national level. They were also designed to inform implementation of the FAO Technical Guidelines on Marine protected areas (MPAs) and fisheries, which were developed to provide information and guidance on the use of MPAs in the context of fisheries
Irrigation in Central Asia in figures : AQUASTAT survey - 2012 by Karen Frenken( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

AQUASTAT, FAO's global information system on water and agriculture, was initiated by the Land and Water Division with a view to presenting a comprehensive picture of water resources and irrigation in the countries of Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean and providing systematic, up-to-date and reliable information on water for agriculture and rural development. This report presents the results of the most recent survey carried out in the six countries of the Central Asia region, and it analyses the changes that have occurred in the ten years since the first survey. Following the AQUASTAT methodology, the survey relied as much as possible on country-based statistics and information. The report consists of three sections. Section I describes in detail the methodology used and contains a glossary of the terms used. Section II contains the regional analysis presenting a synopsis on water resources, water use and irrigation in the region and the trends over the last ten years. It also describes the legislative and institutional framework for water management as well as environmental issues and it presents prospects for agricultural water management from the countries' perspective. Section III contains detailed country profiles for Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, and one river basin profile for the Aral Sea basin
Mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions in livestock production : a review of technical options for non-CO₂ emissions by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Animal agriculture substantially contributes to the world economy by providing food, jobs, and financial security for billions of people. With increasing concerns over global climate change and pollution, efforts are underway to reduce the overall environmental impact of animal production. This document analyzes emission of non-carbon dioxide greenhouse gases, an important segment of the environmental footprint of animal production. It has been developed by a team that included experts in animal/ruminant nutrition, manure and soil management, animal and whole-farm modeling, and animal reproduction. Over 900 publications focusing on nutritional and manure management mitigation strategies for methane (enteric or from manure) and nitrous oxide emissions were reviewed and analyzed, and a synthesis of feed-, animal managementand manure management-based mitigation approaches and interactions amongst them has been presented. This document will help researchers, animal industry consultants, policy-makers, animal producers, non-governmental organizations, and other groups with interest in maintaining a viable and environmentally-responsible animal production sector to make sound decisions on selection and adoption of effective and economically feasible greenhouse gas mitigation practices."--Publisher's description
Fish species introductions in the Kyrgyz Republic by Mukthar Alpiev( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Kyrgyzstan is rich in water resources, the productivity of its waters is low and its indigenous fish fauna is relatively poor, with only a limited number of commercially valuable species. However, as the waters are suitable for growing valuable cold-water fish species, several fish species were introduced and regularly stocked when Kyrgyzstan was part of the Soviet bloc. As a consequence of these introductions, both the number and proportion of indigenous fish species gradually declined. After Kyrgyzstan became an independent State, seed and fingerling production from hatcheries first fell significantly and then stopped completely, while illegal and unregulated fishing increased. This combination led to the collapse of both the fisheries and aquaculture sectors. Currently, national and foreign investors are increasingly interested in investing in the potentially lucrative cage farming of exotic rainbow trout, particularly in the unspoilt waters of Lake Issyk Kul, which may further endanger the efforts to restore and maintain the original fish fauna of the lake. The objective of this document is to analyse the available information on historic practices, experiences and lessons learned on species introductions so that more suitable and improved practices can be used in future stocking programmes in Kyrgyzstan and elsewhere in the Central Asian region. Information is provided to support the management of exotic and indigenous species in Kyrgyz fisheries and aquaculture activity. It includes an analysis of the long-term consequences of possible stocking programmes for exotic and native species and the use of cages in natural waters. The information presented in this document includes a detailed inventory of all waterbodies, fishery and fish culture resources in Kyrgyzstan. It will also serve the rehabilitation and sustainable development of both the fishery and aquaculture sectors in Kyrgyzstan in an ecologically sound manner. The document also recommends feasible solutions for the sustainable utilization of natural waters, reservoirs and fish farms in Kyrgyzstan
