Partners | Reducing Enteric Methane for improving food security and livelihoods | Organización de las Naciones Unidas para la Alimentación y la Agricultura FAO.org english Español Reducing Enteric Methane for improving food security and livelihoods Background The Project Win-win opportunities Participating Countries Partners Resources Regional partners Donors Partners Reducing enteric methane for improving food security and livelihoods’ is a new collaboration between the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (the FAO) and the New Zealand Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Research Centre (the NZAGRC).  (...) Its broad partnership approach takes concrete action to reduce short-lived climate pollutants, collectively and individually. (...) The NZAGRC’s research programme concentrates on six possible solutions to reducing livestock greenhouse gas emissions: low methane animals, low methane feeds, methane vaccine, methane inhibitors, reducing nitrous oxide and nitrate leaching and increasing soil carbon.

Climate Change Education Inside and Outside the Classroom Climate Change Education Inside and Outside the Classroom UNESCO Course Climate Change Mitigation, Adaptation and Disaster Risk Management Module 1 MITIGATION AND ADAPTATION MITIGATION focuses on avoiding, reducing or, at least, delaying climate change mainly by reducing greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere ADAPTATION is necessary for responding to climate change that is already unavoidable because of past greenhouse gas emissions (there is considerable time lag before an emission contributes to global warming) MITIGATION and ADAPTATION are complementary aspects of a climate change strategy. (...) CLIMATE CHANGE MITIGATION (1) Mitigation efforts focus upon reducing greenhouse gas emissions. For instance: Reducing emissions released from burning fossil fuels by power stations, factories, buildings, motor vehicles and airplanes Reducing deforestation (including burning and decomposing of wood) Capturing greenhouse gases released from garbage and human waste Reducing meat eating as cattle and farm animals emit methane (the second most important greenhouse gas) CLIMATE CHANGE MITIGATION (2) But some argue that ‘deep mitigation’ strategies are needed that address the underlying driving forces behind high levels of greenhouse gas emissions:  Rolling back mass consumerism, especially in high income societies  Moving away from a growth economy that exploits more and more natural resources  Prioritizing local economies as an antidote to globalization and the continual movement of people and goods around the world  Educating for a reconnected, non-exploitative relationship with nature CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTABILITY AND VULNERABILITY  Adaptability is the degree to which a system (e.g. community, region) can adjust in response to or anticipation of climate changed condition;  Adaptability can reduce vulnerability, i.e. the extent to which climate change may damage or harm a system;  Vulnerability is made worse by other stresses such as poverty, unequal access to resources, food insecurity, economic globalization, conflict and disease. (...) [Save the Children (n.d.) Reducing Risks, Saving Lives]  ‘Natural hazards by themselves do not cause disasters – it is the combination of an exposed, vulnerable and ill - prepared population or community with a hazard event that result in a disaster.’

Answer: for this example assume: Rwy 17 - you walked 80 m (before the River) Rwy 35 - you walked 100 m (before the River) 17 35 80 m 100 m • Step 5: Find ASDA (only 1 case) • Step 6: Subtract 150m - 80m = 70 m missing off Rwy 17. – This is the amount you reduce ASDA. • Step 7: Reduce 2400 - 70 = NEW ASDA = 2330 m 15 35 ASDA 80 m Step 8: Find LDA (2 Cases) Land Long; Land Short Rwy 17 - you walked 80 m Rwy 35 - you walked 100 m 17 35 80 m 100 m • Step 9: First case Land Long (beyond Rwy 17) – This is the 1st amount you reduce LDA • Step 10: Subtract 150 m - 80 m = 70 m – Reduce 2400 - 70 = 2330 m • Step 11: Second case Land Short (before Rwy 35) – This is the 2nd amount your reduce the revised LDA • Step 12: Subtract 150m - 100m = 50 m – Reduce 2330 - 50 = NEW LDA = 2280 m 17 New LDA = 2280 m 35 LDA Presenter Presentation Notes The reduced ASDA and LDA imply that the aircraft might have to reduce its takeoff weight and reduce its landing weight. Exercise #2 Determine the reduced ASDA and reduced LDA for Rwy 17 to obtain . (...) How can you reduce the damage ?

The Applicant submits that his assignment in Cairo, Egypt was “reduced at the initiative of the Organization to less than one year” because senior management of the UNODC decided to nominate him for a position with UNSMIL in Tripoli, Libya on a secondment basis and asked him to send his resume to them. (...) The Tribunal notes that while the Respondent argues that the Applicant applied for a position in Tripoli, Libya, and therefore the duration of his Cairo assignment was not reduced at the initiative of the Organization, he has not specifically responded to the Applicant’s claim in relation to the above email exchanges submitted by the Applicant. 10. (...) Respond to the Applicant’s claim that his assignment in Cairo, Egypt was reduced at the initiative of the Organization to less than one year and provide supporting documentation, if not already submitted to the Tribunal. 14.
