The year 2017 has indeed been a productive year for UNU-FLORES. As we look back at some of the achievements this year, we are pleased to compile a reading list for you for the holidays. Here’s wishing you a reflective and fruitful close to the year!
This article attempts to provide the broad contours of an institutional framework that can inform discussions focused on implementing the Nexus Approach; elaborates upon the concepts of trade-offs; and finally emphasises the importance of transdisciplinary approaches to research, training, and policy.
Seventeen interesting case studies gathered from around the world on wastewater reuse in agriculture are presented in this book. All cases provide first-hand information as they have been authored by the experts who implemented these cases or monitored their progress closely for years. Following its successful launch last year, the book has since been translated into Spanish.
In a new book published with Springer, UNU-FLORES presents the state-of-the-art in forest management and land-use policy, with reference to the case of the Loess Plateau region in China.
This handbook provides guidance on Earth Observation techniques and the topic of remote sensing in theory, as well as sheds light on the tools such as the Water Observation Information System (WOIS) in practice. A how-to manual at the end guides practitioners through the steps implementing the equations, and deriving information from data gathered.
This paper analyses integrated management systems and how their system boundaries are defined. It is determined that in order for system boundaries to be applicable, they should be clear, wide, and flexible. The authors propose the boundary of the Water–Soil–Waste Nexus system, using two case studies to exemplify the usefulness of these system boundaries.
