Landscape ecology and water management : proceedings of IGU Rohtak Conference by International Geographical Union( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The over-exploitation of important earth resources such as land and water has led to a number of environment-related problems all over the world. At the same time, land-use change caused by various human activities has led to extinction of habitats and species of flora and fauna. In this context, the relevance of biodiversity for human survival is becoming a major international political issue as scientific evidence builds on the global health implications of biodiversity loss. These issues are closely linked with the issue of climate change, as many of the health risks due to climate change are associated with fast degradation of biodiversity. This present work focuses on holistic natural resource-based spatio-temporal planning, development and management and considered them as essential to save the degraded ecosystem for sustainable resource management. Contributions are compiled in two volumes: 1. Climate Change and Biodiversity, and 2. Landscape Ecology and Water Management. Geoinformatics along with its tools such as remote sensing and geographical information systems (GIS) have been used in assessing the results of various environmental problems both physical and social. The volume will be useful for geographers, geoscientists, hydrologists, landscape ecologists, environmentalists, engineers, planners, and policy makers

Traditional wisdom and modern knowledge for the Earth's future : lectures given at the Plenary Sessions of the International Geographical Union Kyoto Regional Conference, 2013 by International Geographical Union( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The title of this book, Traditional Wisdom and Modern Knowledge for the Earth’s Future, is from the theme of the 2013 Kyoto Regional Conference of the International Geographical Union. Over the past few decades, globalization has strengthened connections among countries and regions of the world and has greatly changed existing geographies. However, this trend has also fostered various problems on a regional or global scale, such as economic imbalance, social fragmentation, political conflicts, and environmental crises. While acknowledging the world’s diversity, geography as a discipline must endeavor to resolve these problems by devising plans for cooperation and symbiotic existence of the different peoples of the world. An old Japanese proverb, On-ko chi-shin, taken from a Chinese one, Wengu zhixin, says that only by exploring the old can one understand the new. People should first understand how traditional ideas, linked to interaction between society/culture and the environment, were formed in different countries and regions. Traditional wisdom, in harmony with the environment, remains prevalent. This book examines how we can mold the earth’s future through such traditional wisdom and modern knowledge from the nine keynote speeches of the Kyoto Regional Conference focusing on three topics: traditional wisdom, the environment, and the Great East Japan Earthquake
