Land resources Management - rural and urban development projects
A workshop on land resources management for rural and urban development projects was held in Nay Pyi Taw, yesterday. President U Thein Sein gave a speech, saying that the government will be able to settle landless people on newly-developed plots in accordance with urban and rural development plans after identifying the real landless people. Granting land to landless people is an important task in the process of socio-economic development and poverty. Regarding some of the main challenges in villages and towns, the President highlighted shortage of drinking water, lack of proper drainage and traffic congestions due to population increase, influx of migrant workers and increase of squatters along roads and railway lines. In conclusion, he urged the participants to invite the public to help draft rural and urban development plans and to adopt systematic measures for land use in accordance with policies, laws, rules and regulations. At the meeting, Vice president U Nyan Tun also said that land resources management should be more transparent and link social and environmental issues, solves land disputes and set up a common goal for land-use. The land resources management should be taken into consideration of local requirements, the values of land alternative ways of land use in order to develop an effective system. The economic experts and officials from various ministries also discussed socio-economic development, environmental conservation and land-related cases.

GIZ: Prospects for rural areas of the Western Balkans. 2017
The Western Balkan countries face the phenomena of outmigration and rural depopulation, which are severe problems in the whole region. The regional project "Rural Development through Integrated Forest and Water Resources Management" (LEIWW),among the others, aims to illustrate alternative ways of income generation in rural areas and create tangible future perspectives for returnees, as well as potential migrants. The tailor-made qualification measures for cooks, bakers, bartenders, barista and waiters were offered to approximately 200 young trainees from WB countries. The offered qualification measures should increase chances of trainees for employment in the tourism sector, while at the same time answering to the increased demand of the private sector for certain professions. In addition, the provided training measures for the population across the borders should contribute to ensuring same/similar standards in the provision of tourism services in the cross border tourist destinations.

Natural Resources
Natural resources are essential to food production, enhanced rural development and sustainable livelihoods. Conflicts and competition over access to, and the use of these resources are likely to increase in many regions and will be exacerbated by changing growing conditions, increased water scarcity, loss of biodiversity, extreme weather events and other effects of climate change. The sustainable management of natural resources for the benefit of present and future generations requires addressing key aspects of natural resources and their governance across all sectors. This video comments on FAO's work to support to smallholders in developping sustainable management systems that support development while conserving resources for future generations, presented at the 2012 FAO Committee on Agriculture exhibits on Fighting hunger through sustainable smallholder agriculture.

Urban resources management - english version
This video introduces the Urban resources management (URM) approach. How an integrated urban planning can reduce the use of energy, water, the production of waste and prevent the urban sprawling ? This programme is funded by ADEME (French Environment Agency, www.ademe.fr) and developped by EXPLICIT (Consulting company, www.explicit.fr). The main targets are small and medium cities in South East Asia (Indonesia and Vietnam in particular). The first experimentation is planned in Semarang.
Improved rural urban linkages: Building sustainable food systems
www.fao.org/in-action/food-for-cities-programme Land and water use, food production, environmental management, transport and distribution, marketing and consumption concern urban and rural areas. Looking at the food system from a city region perspective – the city and its surrounding areas –, can ensure a more sustainable urbanization, and contribute in tackling challenges like urban food and nutrition insecurity, social and economic inequalities in cities and its surrounding areas, and degraded environmental and natural resources. © FAO: http://www.fao.org Subscribe! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=FAOoftheUN Follow #UNFAO on social media! * Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/UNFAO * Google+ - https://plus.google.com/+UNFAO * Instagram - https://instagram.com/unfao/ * LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/company/fao * Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/faoknowledge © FAO: http://www.fao.org

Land Use
018 - Land Use In this video Paul Andersen explains how land is developed for human use. Urbanization has occurred through the last century as people have moved to cities in large numbers. Transportation and the arrival of the car have led to urban sprawl and urban blight. Smart growth can be used to mediate some of the ecosystem impacts. Land is also preserved in parks, refuges, and wilderness areas. Do you speak another language?

Christopher Barrett - Poverty Traps, Resilience and Resource Dynamics Among The Extreme Rural Poor
Seminar title: Poverty Traps, Resilience and Resource Dynamics Among The Extreme Rural Poor Seminar type: CoralCoE seminar series Presented by: Christopher Barrett Date: Thursday, 4th of July 2013 Abstract: Human populations suffering persistent, extreme poverty depend disproportionately on natural resources for livelihoods based on farming, fishing, forestry, herding or hunting. They are also unusually vulnerable to infectious disease and to natural disasters. The dynamics of well-being among the world’s extreme rural poor thus depend inextricably on the dynamics of the biophysical systems that are themselves heavily affected by human behaviors. This seminar discusses the authors’ research on poverty traps in smallholder agrarian systems in Africa, draws out the links between ecological concepts of resilience and resistance and the economics of poverty traps, and discusses a range of interventions aimed at helping the rural poor to exit poverty traps and build resilience without compromising the natural resources on which future generations depend. Biography: Chris Barrett is the Stephen B. and Janice G. Ashley Professor of Applied Economics and Management and International Professor of Agriculture in the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management as well as Professor in the Department of Economics and Fellow of the David R. Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future, all at Cornell University. Chris also serves as the Director of the Cornell Institute for International Food, Agriculture and Development’s initiative on Stimulating Agricultural and Rural Transformation. He holds degrees from Princeton (A.B., History, 1984), Oxford (M.S., Development Economics, 1985) and the University of Wisconsin-Madison (dual Ph.D., Economics and Agricultural Economics, 1994. Chris has published 14 books and more than 260 journal articles or book chapters on issues ranging from poverty and natural resources, livelihood diversification, climate change adaptation, and food security. These works have attracted over 13,500 citations, according to Google Scholar.

Water resources management by a wireless broadband network
The scarcity of water around the world is forcing the water authorities to use water resources which are scattered in remote areas with low accessibility and impossible permanent wire connections. On the other hand, the water resources are generally in long distances between each other and all of them are very far from the water consumption area. This constrains the administrative organizations to spend human and fund resources for controlling, monitoring and maintaining the installations with poor results, since no constant supervision can be achieved. The technological combination of wireless broadband networks (wifi), modern systems of signal control and data acquisition, computers/software and telematics can provide an excellent solution for this problem. In this video the process of planning and installation of a system, for the telematic control and management of eleven wells and storage installations and distribution process for the Municipality of Thira (Fira, Santorini, Greece) is presented. The installation is checking the pumping stations, the levels of water tanks as well as qualitative data of the water supplies, from distance through a wireless network. The system interacts automatically or manually with the installations and to preset points, giving complete records of the data and alarms to any malfunction or oncoming breakdown. The proposed solution is expandable regarding the installations in control and the signals which are collected and checked. The equipment which is used is simple keeping the budget of the installation low. However, the equipment has been tested for enough period of time and the proposed solution has been proved to be reliable and reasonably low-cost for the water resources management. The narration in this video is in Greek Language. The video is not complete... The 10 out of 12 minutes of the duration of the video is presented due to YouTube 10 minutes restriction.

Integrated Water Resources Management (#IWRM) and poverty reduction
The Integrated Water Resources Management project aimed at establishing and replicating models of improved water management practices, institutionalising processes for community managed water resources and increasing access to entitlements in Madhya Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand, India. The project supported the setting up and development of the Jan Jal Jodo campaign (Water for people alliance). The project was possible thanks to the financial support of the European Union and Viva con Agua and was implemented by our partners Parmarth (in Madhya Pradesh), SGVK (in Jharkhand) and GPSVS (in Bihar). #### For more Information, please check out Faceboook: https://www.facebook.com/welthungerhi...

Water Resources
I earned a PhD degree in Geology-Geoscience at the University of Copenhagen in January 2015. Since then I have been working at the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland on the project aiming at predicting the arsenic content in groundwater of the floodplains in south-east Asia. Arsenic contamination of aquifers is considered one of the most pressing global human health problems. Thus, outcomes of the project will be of a major importance for the management of rural water resources.
