Recruitment and retention of officers is an increasing challenge for police agencies in a time of increasing crime and homeland security demands and of decreasing resources in American cities. Many urban police agencies report particular difficulty in recruiting minority and female officers. To help address these challenges,
Urban ecology in Berlin has been developing over the past 350 years, from garden
floras and wild floras of castles and ruins to the Graduate Research Training Group
780 “Perspectives in Urban Ecology”. This program has brought together universities
and scientific institutes from all over Berlin.
Since the beginning, urban ecology in Berlin has included approaches from
biology and geography, leading to the current interdisciplinary work documented
in this summarizing publication.

This is a spectacular resource for practitioners, policymakers, researchers, and students interested in improving the lives and health of individuals and families in urban settings. This book provides the most current frameworks, research, and approaches for understanding how unique features of the urban physical and social environments that shape the health of over half of the world's population that is already residing in large cities. Its interdisciplinary research and practice focus is a welcome innovation....
Public health officials have long been concerned about the effect of
the environment on human health. In the nineteenth century, public
health efforts in the United States were focused on controlling
the spread of infectious disease, and advances in sanitation and the
provision of clean water contributed to improvements in the health
of the population.
This book is the principal output of a project to develop guidance on site
layout planning to improve solar access, passive cooling and microclimate.
The project is jointly funded by the European Commission JOULE
programme and national funding agencies including the UK Department of
the Environment, Transport and the Regions. The European project is
coordinated by BRE and includes the University of Athens, LEMA
(University of Liege) and AICIA (University of Seville).
Development of efficient and effective road network is the most important policy agenda for sustainable urban area development and growth in the study area. Urban area has been quickly expanding towards the outer areas along major roads. Dramatic population increase expected in the future requires a huge amount of urban areas for housing and other socio-economic activities. In order to support and guide these development demands properly, well articulated road network is the must.
This report has five chapters: Chapter 1 outlines its contents; Chapter 2 describes the institutional framework for environmental protection in Vietnam; Chapter 3 focuses on the social environment; Chapter 4 discusses the natural environment in the study area; and Chapter 5 assesses the environmental aspects for the feasibility studies. For the social environment context, the resettlement issue is analyzed in Chapter 4. The environmental impact assessment (EIA) was prepared in a different format.
Natural and social scientists face a great challenge in the coming decades:
to understand the role that humans play in ecosystems, particularly urban
ecosystems. Cities and urbanizing regions are complex coupled humannatural
systems in which people are the dominant agents. As humans
transform natural landscapes into highly human-dominated environments,
they create a new set of ecological conditions by changing ecosystem
processes and dynamics.
The remarkable political changes that have
taken place within the European Region in
the last five years have greatly enlarged the
potential for international collaboration. The
First European Conference on Environment
and Health was held in Frankfurt in December
1989, when these dramatic changes
were at their height. Ministers from 29 countries,
and the European Commission, approved
a Charter that set out the principles,
strategy and priorities for achieving an effective
approach to the many areas in which environmental
conditions may significantly affect
Many of the Earth’s elements travel or cycle through the natural environment. This means
that they are transported from the soil into nearby lakes and rivers, and then evaporate
from the water into the air, to be transported by wind and eventually re-deposited to
the surface where the cycle starts over again. Mercury cycles through the environment
in this way (see Figure 5). An atom of mercury may begin its journey by being eroded
from rocks on the shore of a lake or by being vented into the atmosphere as mercury
vapour from a volcanic eruption. These are natural emissions.
The Western Riverside County Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan (MSHCP) is an ambitious effort to balance development and environmental concerns in an area of rapid urban growth. In return for setting up a 500,000-acre conservation reserve, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the California Department of Fish and Game granted the county and cities in western Riverside County a 75-year
This change has been matched by increasing demand for urban design practitioners and, more generally, for urban design skills throughout the built environment and land and property professions, and by an increasing demand for urban design education at universities and in the workplace.
Urban agglomerations and their resource uses are becoming the dominant feature of the human presence on earth, profoundly changing humanity’s relationship to its host planet and its ecosystems. The cities of the 21 century are where human destiny will be played out and where the future of the biosphere will be determined.
describe environmentally conscious design technique in the field on buildings and
architecture: how to minimize the negative environmental impact of buildings by
enhancing the energy efficiency, water efficiency, use sustainable (renewable or
recyclables) materials of construction. Section 4 is a collection of articles related to
sustainable agriculture and food security: systems of food production that provide
secure supply to meet the world growing population.
