Young Entrepreneurs in Sub-Saharan Africa (Routledge Spaces of Childhood and Youth Series)

by Katherine V. Gough and Thilde Langevang

Young people in sub-Saharan Africa are growing up in rapidly changing social and economic environments which produce high levels of un- and underemployment. Job creation through entrepreneurship is currently being promoted by international organizations, governments and NGOs as a key solution, despite there being a dearth of knowledge about youth entrepreneurship in an African context.This book makes an important contribution by exploring the nature of youth entrepreneurship in Ghana, Uganda and Zambia. It provides new insights into conceptual and methodological discussions of youth entrepreneurship as well as presenting original empirical data. Drawing on quantitative and qualitative research, conducted under the auspices of a collaborative, interdisciplinary and comparative research proj...

Thirteen Short Chapters on Remote Sensing

by Iain Woodhouse

"A unique collection of essays written by somebody with passion and understanding!" - Dr Ilona Kemeling, Kemeling Consulting @IlonaKeCo"Quirky but useful" - Prof Chris Merchant, Reading University @ChrisJMerchantThis is a different kind of remote sensing book. Unlike the usual text books you might be used to, this is a concepts book – it is meant to make you think about the "why" more than the "how". You might consider it a companion reader, or perhaps in some cases, an antidote to some of the conceptual errors or simplifications that permeate many of the textbooks. Plenty of other books will explain how to do remote sensing, but they tend to skimp on the fundamental principles, both technical and conceptual, that this author believes to be important elements of what make remote sensin...

Subseafloor Biosphere Linked to Hydrothermal Systems: TAIGA Concept

by Jun-ichiro Ishibashi and Kyoko Okino

This book is the comprehensive volume of the TAIGA (“a great river ” in Japanese) project. Supported by the Japanese government, the project examined the hypothesis that the subseafloor fluid advection system (subseafloor TAIGA)   can be categorized into four types, TAIGAs of sulfur, hydrogen, carbon (methane), and iron, according to the most dominant reducing substance, and the chemolithoautotrophic bacteria/archaea that are inextricably associated with respective types of TAIGAs which are strongly affected by their geological background such as surrounding host rocks and tectonic settings. Sub-seafloor ecosystems are sustained by hydrothermal circulation or TAIGA that carry chemical energy to the chemosynthetic microbes living in an extreme environment.  The results of the project...

Sustainable Living with Environmental Risks

by Nobuhiro Kaneko and Shinji Yoshiura

We are not free from environmental risks that accompany the development of human societies. Modern economic development has accelerated environmental pollution, caused loss of natural habitats, and modified landscapes. These environmental changes have impacted natural systems: water and heat circulation, nutrient cycling, and biodiversity. These changes in natural systems degrade ecosystem services and subsequently increase environmental risks for humans. Environmental risks, therefore, are not only human health risks by pollution, climatic anomalies and natural disasters, but also degradation of ecosystem services on which most people are relying for their lives. We cannot entirely eliminate the risks, because it is not possible to attain zero impact on the environment, but we need to fin...

Plant Selection for Bioretention Systems and Stormwater Treatment Practices (SpringerBriefs in Water Science and Technology)

by William F. Hunt and Bill Lord

As cities develop, more land is converted into impervious surfaces, which do not allow water to infiltrate. Careful urban planning is needed to ensure that the hydrologic cycle and water quality of the catchment areas are not affected. There are techniques that can attenuate peak flow during rain events and reduce the amount of metals, nutrients, and bacteria that enter the urban water cycle. This brief gives a short introduction on bioretention systems and documents the effectiveness of some 36 plant species in removing water pollutants. A summary on the maintenance requirements is also presented. ...

Wetlands and Water Framework Directive: Protection, Management and Climate Change (GeoPlanet: Earth and Planetary Sciences)

by Stefan Ignar and Mateusz Grygoruk

This book compares the lessons learned from a wetland-perspective approach to the changing climate and the requirements of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) with regard to environmental conservation. Examples from Germany and Poland are discussed due to the efficiency of their respective implementations of water conservation policies. Although the general scientific interest in specific issues such as wetlands, climate change, nature conservation and the WFD enjoy a well established position in international environmental research, these four elements are rarely considered together due to the complexity of the processes, biased scenarios of global change and subjective policy background. Major challenges involved in carrying out environmental conservation actions that assess the potentia...
