Food availability, access, stability and utilization are all part of the multi-dimensional nature of food security. The “availability” aspect, discussed here, refers to the availability of sufficient quantities of food of appropriate quality, supplied through domestic production or inputs.
Productivity is usually considered the ultimate benchmark when comparing the performance of agricultural systems. For example, those involved in agricultural research and development want to know how much yield would be reduced if conventional agriculture were converted to organic agriculture.
Research over the past decade has demonstrated the feasibility of extracting topographic information
of hydrological interest directly from digital elevation models (DEM). Techniques are
available for extracting slope properties, catchment areas, drainage divides, channel networks and
other data (Jenson and Domingue, 1988; Mark, 1988; Moore et al., 1991; Martz and Garbrecht,
1992). These techniques are faster and provide more precise and reproducible measurements than
traditional manual techniques applied to topographic maps (Tribe, 1991)....
In response to increasing concerns about degradation of natural resources and
the sustainability of agricultural production potentials in many poor regions
of the world, many national and international organisations have initiated
research and development programmes for natural resource management

No matter what export markets and outlets you target, in this day and age you must be
visible to consumers online. Having your own website is valuable whether you are
selling your products directly from your own site or just linking your website to the sites
where your products are available for purchase. (E.g. your distributor, retail shops or
catalogs that carry your products.) If you do not have the capacity to sell products from
your own website, concentrate on a few good web pages that tell your products’ stories
using compelling pictures.
This guide presents resources on child and youth participation from Asia, Europe, North America,
Latin America, Africa, Australia and the Pacific. Most of the materials are available in electronic
form and have been included in the CD-ROM that is part of this guide. The main audiences for
this resource guide are practitioners and managers involved in promoting child and youth
participation in government, community-based organizations, child-led organizations, NGOs
and UN and donor agencies.
Early childhood assessment for children from birth to age 8 (Grade 3) report offers information about the extent to which several assessment tools and curriculum materials align with Pennsylvania’s standards for learning (birth to age 8). Given the many resources available on the market, both workgroups limited the list of assessment tools to those that are evidence-based and have demonstrated technological adequacy for the preschool and elementary school age groups.
This second edition of Internet Resources for Nurses is expanded
in scope and depth; it includes more content headings and additional
features. Since the publication of the first edition in 2000,
there has been a substantial increase in the information available to
nurses through the Internet. We can expect that this trend will continue
and that the number, depth, and scope of health care Web sites will
increase dramatically as health care organizations more fully embrace
the information resources available.
Disagreements involving environmental priorities and strategic approaches, and balancing the
relative roles of compliance assistance with enforcement, contribute to the complexity and
friction that come with enforcing national pollution control laws. Other contributing factors
include the increasing number of statutory and related regulatory pollution control requirements
(some with conflicting mandates) and the adequacy of the resources available for their
Official policies for SME development can be evaluated against their impact upon enterprise culture,
start-up, survival and growth of SMEs, and stakeholder empathy. Each of these criteria feeds off the others.
Enterprise culture will be strong where there are high rates of SME growth. Where SMEs are dominant
features in the local and regional economic and social environment, stakeholders themselves will be
influenced and will adjust their behaviour accordingly.
This template of culture and business and stakeholder development may be used in very different
The contribution of inorganic fertilizer to surface water N
contamination increased after 1960 as the widespread and
intensive use of inorganic N fertilizers rapidly
The use of N fertilizer has allowed greater
production of feed and food crops per unit area cultivated.
In the United States, 75% of N fertilizer is applied to
maize, while in other countries, N fertilizer is primarily
used on wheat and rice.
This paper describes our work on building Part-of-Speech (POS) tagger for Bengali. We have use Hidden Markov Model (HMM) and Maximum Entropy (ME) based stochastic taggers. Bengali is a morphologically rich language and our taggers make use of morphological and contextual information of the words. Since only a small labeled training set is available (45,000 words), simple stochastic approach does not yield very good results. In this work, we have studied the effect of using a morphological analyzer to improve the performance of the tagger. ...
Knowledge acquisition is a serious bottleneck for natural language understanding systems. For this reason, large-scale linguistic resources have been compiled and made available by organizations such as the Linguistic Data Consortium (Comlex) and Princeton University (WordNet). Systems making use of these resources can greatly accelerate the development process by avoiding the need for the developer to re-create this information. In this paper we describe how we integrated these large scale linguistic resources into our natural language understanding system. ...
There are many resources available to assist school staff and their partners in the health and
education sectors to plan, implement, and evaluate school health initiatives. These are in the form of
evidence-based guidelines, surveillance tools, assessment approaches, etcetera. Many of these
resources can be found on the websites of international organizations, as well as those country and
regional agencies and organizations (e.g. health and education ministries and non government
organizations) with responsibilities for promoting the health and educational outcomes of young
The data items to be collected by a registry are dictated by the purpose for
which the registry has been established, by the method of data collection
used and by the resources available to the registry. However, the emphasis
should be on the quality of the data collected rather than on the quantity. It is
advisable that registries in developing countries should start by attempting
to collect only information on the basic items listed in .
A unique registration number (cancer registry number) is assigned by the
registry to each patient.
We describe the semi-automatic adaptation of a TimeML annotated corpus from English to Portuguese, a language for which TimeML annotated data was not available yet. In order to validate this adaptation, we use the obtained data to replicate some results in the literature that used the original English data. The fact that comparable results are obtained indicates that our approach can be used successfully to rapidly create semantically annotated resources for new languages.
This paper proposes an approach to improve word alignment for languages with scarce resources using bilingual corpora of other language pairs. To perform word alignment between languages L1 and L2, we introduce a third language L3. Although only small amounts of bilingual data are available for the desired language pair L1-L2, large-scale bilingual corpora in L1-L3 and L2-L3 are available. Based on these two additional corpora and with L3 as the pivot language, we build a word alignment model for L1 and L2. ...
