In Latin America, cities are finding ways to keep food supplies flowing, despite the current restrictions on movement and supplies. (...) There are fears that if these restrictions remain in place, the food supply chain in the city could be badly disrupted. (...) And, whilst food stores are often named as essential services, strategies should be put in place to allow markets to stay open; and food chains should also be designated as essential, so that workers and producers can continue circulating, whilst respecting health regulations.

National broadband policies for any country should be technology neutral and should be implemented in conjunction with market forces and free competition. Whilst there may be short term logic in giving preference to any one particular technology, whether fixed or wireless, nevertheless, encouraging technological flexibility and interoperability will provide a conducive environment towards competition and prudent infrastructure investment. (...) Continuous maintenance on such key network is crucial against a backdrop of gradual increase in broadband demand over time. 4. The aggregation of supply and demand of broadband is a vicious cycle which needs to be nurtured by governments on a combined private- public partnership basis in order to create the critical mass. (...) This creates wastage in terms of numerous private network circuits each having restricted access and the lack of interoperability. Whilst network security may be an issue, it should not be the main issue which justifies excessive duplication of such infrastructure.

For the purpose of this paper, focus and analysis is restricted to the environmental impacts in the textile manufacturing and garment assembly links of the supply chain. MAIN FINDINGS Environmental impacts in the textile and garment supply chain Environmental impacts are concentrated at certain points in the supply chain, and this report highlights four areas: i. the weaving, dyeing and finishing processes in textile manufacturing; ii. energy use; iii. textile waste associated with garment assembly; and iv. the transport emissions throughout the supply chain as materials and then final products are shipped globally. (...) The industry provides a context where relatively modern and existing technology can be deployed and be used to address environmental impacts, whilst also achieving productivity and development gains. (...) Environmental regulation systems and institutions are still emerging in many study countries. Whilst there are deficits in these regulatory frameworks, this is exacerbated by significant deficits in monitoring, testing and compliance activities.

The assimilation of elements such as nitrogen, phosphorous give a ready supply of fresh material to sustain the food chains. Because of the close proximity to the material and in the nature of how elements enter into the food chains by the metabolic and energy pathways, this process is carried out largely by microorganisms. Whilst it is convenient to consider each cycle on its own, no cycle operate independently.

Microsoft Word - WorldWeWant FINAL Urbanization, wetlands and ecosystem services – a nexus we ignore at our peril By Robert McInnes The ecosystem approach, which recognizes that human society is an integral component of ecosystems, provides a conceptual construct that integrates the management of land, water and living resources whilst promoting conservation and sustainable use in an equitable way. (...) Therefore the need to protect, restore and manage the biodiversity supported by urban green spaces, whilst still protecting vital resources, extends beyond the traditional bounds of nature conservation planning. (...) The three regulating services are all dependent on biogeochemical processes predominantly driven by microbial biodiversity whilst pollination is dependent on a wide variety of invertebrates.
