Crop Diversification in Malawi

Crop Diversification in Malawi | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

"The tiny black-eyed pea is about to wage battle in Malawi.  The small country in southeast Africa is the site of a project to help with food security, nutrition and income.  Western University researchers are among those who will work with 30,000 farmers to help diversify crops into protein-rich legumes, such as the black-eyed pea, a popular type of cow pea in Malawi."

Review for you!

Seth Dixon's comment, March 15, 2013 8:44 PM
A good friend of mine is currently working for USAID in Malawi. This is what he had to say: I think crop diversification is really important here in Malawi. Most farmers have a heavy reliance on maize,which results in reduced hunger but there continues to be persistent malnutrition among children as their diets consist of mostly maize.Almost everyone here grows maize, you might be a school teacher or a health worker, but you are also most likely growing maize as well. Farmers are very risk averse here, so introducing a new crop takes time, finding the few willing to experiment and then using them to show their neighbors of the benefits. Other organizations are working on crop diversification here in Malawi, the US government, Catholic Relief Services, and other international development partners. Although not spelled out in the article, the majority of farmers are actually women, and agricultural production is typically for household subsistence with minimal cash cropping. As crop diversification increases, cash crops will provide more resources for families to pay for education and health for their families, but probably more importantly families will start diversifying their nutritional intake beyond maize. In a country where 42% of under 5 children are stunted, this will be a positive development. My wife was just out in the South of the country with CRS and was seeing some of the work that they are doing towards crop diversification as a result of USAID funding. She was really impressed to see how different vulnerable groups have been targeted by similar programs. She was able to see changes in rural villages in very insecure food zones. She saw how those lead farmers, willing to adopt new techniques or diversify crops, plant cash crops, etc, are reaping the benefits. Their neighbors are seeing it in action and are now adopting the techniques. It is not an immediate adoption, you have to give it time. These people are very risk averse, when set backs aren't just an inconvenience, but translate into starvation, it is understandable why it takes time. It also makes it more impressive when you find those willing to take the risks and try to set aside some land for a new crop. I am sure my agricultural colleagues would have more sophisticated answers but just some of my personal thoughts/observations."

The Geographic Advantage

The Geographic Advantage | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
We are living in an era of receding glaciers, accelerating loss of species habitat, unprecedented population migration, growing inequalities within and between nations, rising concerns over resource depletion, and shifting patterns of interaction and identity. This website provides 11 geographic investigations aligned to the geographic questions in the NRC Understanding Our Changing Planet report. The report focuses on the future directions in the geographical sciences and how these key questions will guide research to help us understand the planet on which we live.

The four aspects the geographic advantage (as conceptualized by former AAG president Susan Hanson and solidified by the AAG team--see powerpoint) are:

1.  Relationships between people and the environment

2.  Importance of spatial variability

3.  Processes operating an multiple and interlocking geographic scales

4.  The integration of spatial and temporal analysis

 

To ensure that this advantage is harnessed, the AAG prepared 11 modules within these 4 categories of key issue facing the world:

--Environmental Change

--Sustainability

--Rapid Spatial Reorganization

--Technological Change

Les IGH sont soumis, selon leur type, à un règlement de sécurité particulier édicté initialement par l'arrêté du 30 décembre 2011 (remplaçant l'arrêté du 18 octobre 1977). Ce texte a subi depuis de nombreuses modifications successives destinées à la mise en œuvre des principes de sécurité définis à l'article R 122-9 du Code de la construction et de l'habitation :


  • « permettre de vaincre le feu avant qu'il n'ait atteint une dangereuse extension », notamment en divisant l'immeuble en compartiments (niveaux isolés les uns des autres) et demi compartiments (par niveaux) capables d'empêcher la propagation de l'incendie de l'un à l'autre, et en limitant les sources de matériaux combustibles (limitation du potentiel calorifique à 400 MJ/m² en général) ;
  • assurer une évacuation horizontale et verticale aisée des occupants, notamment par la présence de circulations de dimensions adaptées à l'effectif présent, d'au moins deux escaliers par compartiment ;
  • assurer une détection rapide de l'incendie, et mettre à disposition des moyens efficaces de lutte contre l'incendie ;
  • empêcher le passage des fumées d'incendie de la zone sinistrée aux compartiments indemnes ;
  • empêcher la propagation d'un incendie frappant le voisinage de ce bâtiment à l'IGH (volume de protection).


Les propriétaires sont tenus de maintenir et d’entretenir les installations en conformité avec la réglementation IGH, sous le contrôle de la Commission consultative départementale de sécurité et d'accessibilité territorialement compétente.


--------


La notion d’établissements recevant du public :

Le terme établissement recevant du public (ERP), défini à l'article R.123-2 du code de la construction et de l’habitation (CCH), désigne tous bâtiments, locaux et enceintes dans lesquels des personnes sont admises, soit librement, soit moyennant une rétribution ou une participation quelconque, ou dans lesquels sont tenues des réunions ouvertes à tout venant ou sur invitation, payantes ou non.


Sont considérées comme faisant partie du public toutes les personnes admises dans l’établissement à quelque titre que ce soit en plus du personnel. 

La définition d’ERP regroupe un très grand nombre d'établissements comme les cinémas, théâtres, magasins, bibliothèques, écoles, universités, hôtels, restaurants, hôpitaux, les établissements flottants (péniches à quai), etc., que ce soient des structures fixes ou provisoires (chapiteaux, ou structures gonflables).


Les mesures qui doivent être respectées par les constructeurs, propriétaires et exploitants des ERP, sont déterminées compte tenu de la nature de l’exploitation, des dimensions des locaux, du mode de construction et du nombre de personnes pouvant être admises dans l’établissement.


C’est pourquoi les ERP sont classés par types en fonction de la nature de leur exploitation et par catégories en fonction du nombre de personnes accueillies à l’intérieur des établissements.

New figures show the lowest total number of births since the formation of the modern Italian state

 

Fewer babies were born in Italy in 2014 than in any other year since the modern Italian state was formed in 1861, new data show, highlighting the demographic challenge faced by the country’s chronically sluggish economy.  National statistics office ISTAT said on Thursday the number of live births last year was 509,000, or 5,000 fewer than in 2013, rounding off half a century of decline.  The number of babies born to both natives and foreigners living in Italy dropped as immigration, which used to support the overall birth rate, tumbled to its lowest level for five years.

Louis Mazza's curator insight, February 26, 7:37 PM

Italy has hit historic a historic low birth rate, the lowest since the countries formation in 1861. This is hugely impacted from the south of the country while the North’s birth rate remains 1.5% above average. 2014 birth rate was 5,000 fewer than in 2013 completing half a century or decline. Plummeting birth rates are due to a crippling economy. On top of lower birth rates people are living longer also. This creates problem with increased payouts in healthcare, and pensions. Italy is a dying country. For my Italian ancestry this is sad news. I will take pride in passing on my Italian heritage. As for a solution, this should look at Belgium or countries that are encouraging increased birth rate. More kids could work on farms to produce ever need crops for sustaining the society.

From a long-running radio show to bilingual street signs, efforts are being made to preserve a vernacular once repressed by law.

 

This radio show is part of a conscious effort to sustain an iteration of French that followed its own evolutionary path here, far from the famed vigilance of the Académie française.  Many now believe Louisiana French to be endangered, even as other aspects of the state's rural culture flourish amid the homogenizing forces of modern life.  "We're not losing the music.  We're not losing the food," Mr. Layne said from his office, Ville Platte, a city of 7,500 about two and a half hours west of New Orleans. "But we're losing what I think is the most important thing, which is language."

Mexico's 'maquiladora' labor system keeps workers in poverty

Mexico's 'maquiladora' labor system keeps workers in poverty | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

"Some four decades after welcoming foreign assembly plants and factories, known as maquiladoras, Mexico has seen only a trickle of its industrial and factory workers join the ranks of those who even slightly resemble a middle class." 

 

Despite making such consumer goods like BlackBerry smartphones, plasma TVs, appliances and cars that most people in the US, for instance, consider necessities, Mexican workers in these factories seldom get to enjoy these items because, as this article argues, the labor system keeps them in poverty.  Foreign investment in these businesses keep unions out and attracts workers from poorer areas, allowing low-cost labor to prevail.  Less than $8 a day is the going wage - great for the bottom line and consumer prices but very bleak for those who toil in this system.

Jessica Rieman's curator insight, February 4, 2014 12:47 PM

The labor system keeps workers in Poverty. This is the argument that is transitioned by stating the fact that many factory workers are and will always remian in poverty if they have no oppurtunity to move up in the food chain and become educated in order to get themselves out of poverty. They need different skills in order to aquire a better job to create a better life.

Its a very sad situation reading this. Seeing people go through all this to just survive. Kids don't even get any education and follow their parents footsteps to work at a plant just to be able to pay for bills. 8 dollars a day, and you wonder why they try to run to united states. Its very unfortunate that a lot of people go through this and i hope it changes soon, because to see that this is going on makes me thankful for what i have around me. Foreign investors are not great as they set out to be take advantage of the poor and get rich out of it, i think its pretty ridiculous.
