The Red River Delta (hereafter as RRD) is one of the two biggest deltas in Vietnam with the population is 19,625 million persons in 2009. It is also the most populous area with the population density of 932 person/km2 in 2009 (General Statistics Office, 2010). Tien Hai District of Thai Binh Province locates in the eastern part of the RRD, lies in the coastal zone - a sensitive area and affected by the interaction between the mainland and the South China Sea (in Vietnamese as Biển Đông - East Sea). The study area of this research is Van Truong...
After 15 years of development, Vietnam has built 49 concentrated industrial zones in 61 provinces and cities. However, the unemployment rate of households lost their land to build industrial zones get employment from the industrial zone is low. So why is the labor of the household failed career change process, including failure in the process of finding employment in the industrial and employment compensation from the account? This article is based on studying the effects of industrial employment to rural areas to clarify the issue....
This paper examines the pollution control policies applied in China’s paper industry during the period of economic reform from 1982 to 1992. The paper industry is the source of ten percent of China’s industrial wastewater emissions and one fourth of its chemical oxygen demand. It is the largest source of rural environmental pollution. The very small size of china’s mills is comparable to that of papermills in many developing countries and this small size itself creates an interesting problem.
The Mekong River Delta (MD) in Vietnam has an area of 4 million hectares. The economical production in this region is highly dependent on water from the river and canal system. More than two-third of 17 million inhabitants of the MD live in rural areas and depend totally on the water resources for rice, upland crop irrigation, aquaculture of fish and shrimp, domestic drinking and industrial water supply and for transportation on rivers and canals
Today, in a world that is capable of producing enough food to supply an
adequate diet for all, hundreds of millions of people go hungry. Chronic
undernutrition persists, mainly among rural people in poor developing countries, most
of which depend heavily on agriculture for their livelihood. So long as that is the case,
eliminating hunger will require concerted efforts to speed up agricultural and rural
development, including agro-industry for value addition.
In morocco access to antenatal services is limited and many HIV-
positive pregnant women are not identified for lack of HIV testing,
especially in rural areas. The fear of stigma and discrimination is a
major barrier for women to get tested, both at home and in health
care settings. Breast-feeding is contraindicated by the Ministry of
Health (an outdated recommendation), but formula is provided in
only three cities and only 56 percent of the rural population has
access to safe drinking water.
With an annual human population growth rate of 2.4%, the present 77.4 million
Ethiopia’s human population will increase to about 149.3 million by the year 2040 (FAO
2005). The rural to urban ratio will also continue to change and is expected to increase
in favour of urban population in the coming 25 years. The current rural and urban
distribution of 84.7% and 15.3% will gradually reach 80.1% and 19.9% by the year
2020 (CSA 2008). Vulnerable age groups (up to 14 years) will account for 34% of the

Improvement of operator skills and technology in small rural sawmills in Vietnam.
Table of Content Background .............................................................................................................
This report summaries major achievements of the CARD project entitled “Improvement of operator
skills and technology in small rural sawmills in Vietnam”. An extensive survey of the needs of the
rural sawmilling industry has identified the current and future prospects for forest industries in
Vietnam. It highlights the very significant importance of this industry to the economy of Vietnam and
future well being of rural populations.
WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) is a wireless broadband access network named by industry group called the WiMAX forum formed in June 2001. It is Wireless MAN with IEEE 802.16 family standards. Loosely, WiMAX is a standardized wireless version of Ethernet that enables the last mile, intended primarily as an alternative to wire technologies (such as Cable Modems, DSL and T1/E1 links ) to provide broadband access to customer premises.
Stock market plays a very vital role in developing economy in India. It is also attracting the rural people in
recent years. Investors usually perceive that all capital market investment avenues are risky. Based on objectives
and risk bearing capacities, investors go for different investment alternatives. Among the various investment
possibilities, mutual fund seems to be viable for all kind of investors as it is considered to be a safer mode of
A cross-sectional community based study was
conducted in two different groups of elderly population
(60 year and above) in Dibrugarh District of Assam, India
during the study period from 2002 to 2003. The study
comprised of 523 geriatric persons from both the settings.
The first group consisted of 293 (male - 181 and female
- 112) elderly persons from an urban setting among a
population of about 1.3 lakhs. Four wards and two
adjoining localities were selected randomly for the study.
Sulfur trioxide irritates the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract. A concentration of 1
volume of SO3 in a million volumes of air (one part per million or 1 ppm) is enough to
cause coughing and choking. Sulfur trioxide dissolves in water to form sulfuric acid,
which is a strong acid capable of corroding or destroying many materials. Sulfur trioxide
can absorb moisture from the atmosphere to form very fine droplets of sulfuric acid.
Inhalation of these droplets can harm the respiratory system. Chronic exposure leads to a
much greater likelihood of suffering from bronchitis.
We’re already making great strides in this direction.
Agencies across the Federal government, including the
Departments of Energy, Agriculture, and the Interior,
are working to promote clean energy deployment by
offering grants under the Recovery Act to renewable energy manufacturers and developers; funding
cutting-edge R&D; modernizing our rural energy infrastructure; siting the world’s largest solar power
plants on public lands; and opening a new frontier for offshore wind development.
The first cross-tabulation presented (Table 3) simply shows the number of regions in each
combination of the Dijkstra-Poelman and EDORA Structural types. By far the largest number
of regions is in the Intermediate Accessible/Consumption Countryside combination. There is
also a large number of regions in the Intermediate Accessible/Diversified (Market Services)
combination. PR accessible regions are also commonly in the Consumption Countryside
type, although a significant proportion are Agrarian.
With regard to the D-P typology according to rurality, it is hard to distinguish between the first
three types (IA, IR, and PRA), in terms of the likely impacts of the three meta-narratives.
This is in part a consequence of the fact that the IR category is very small (see section 3.2).
The impact of the Agri-Centric narrative will be mixed, since increased production efficiency
will be offset by negative employment impacts and (poptential) environmental impacts of
The nutritional knowledge and practical skills of small scale farm holders must be improved in
order to ensure that PNG can take advantage of the benefits of aquaculture. An increase in this
knowledge base will also directly benefit other agricultural industries reliant on the feeding of
stock such as the rapidly expanding poultry industry. These needs have been addressed in a three
day Feed Manufacturing Workshop funded by the Australian Centre for International
Agricultural Research (ACIAR).
The objective of this program is to improve Vietnam’s capacity for teaching and conducting research in modern horticultural crop production with a particular focus on vegetables. This should enhance the ability of Vietnam to promote rural development in these industries and improve the efficiency of and quality of vegetable production. The project aims to achieve this by:
Droughts can result in heavy crop and livestock losses, in which the poor are usually
disproportionately hurt. Poor livestock owners tend to engage in distress sales of livestock at
depressed prices, leaving them extremely vulnerable to drought and other shocks in future, and
possibly trapping them permanently in chronic poverty. Recurrent droughts in Sub-Saharan Africa
over the last two decades have had devastating effects on natural resources and on livelihoods.
