      This book gathers a selection of refereed papers presented at the “International Conference on Operations Research OR,” which was held at the University of Vienna, Austria, September , .   Marginal areas which receive low rainfall are also vulnerable to climate change because in most cases the rainfall is not adequate to sustain crop production. Semi-arid regions which receive the lowest rainfall in Zimbabwe also have the least reliable distribution varying from 20% in the north to 45% in the south (Department of Meterological.

Proceedings of the Conference on Sustained Production from Semi-arid Areas, with particular reference to Botswana. With Africa's water resources constantly threatened by an increasing population and the resultant rise in water demand, together with the stresses of water use for various activities, desertification, climate change, and other interventions in the water cycle by man, it is vital that the water resources in arid and semi-arid regions are developed a.

This book presents papers from the International Conference on Sustainable Civil Engineering and Architecturewhich was held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, from 24–26 October The conference brought together international experts from both academia and industry to share their knowledge and experiences, and to facilitate.

For at least the past years, small-scale farmers in semi-arid environments have had to mitigate shortfalls in crop production due to variation in precipitation and stream flow.

About these proceedings Introduction This book discusses the conference that forms a unique platform to bring together academicians and practitioners from industrial engineering and management engineering as well as from other disciplines working on production function applying the tools of operational research and production/operational.

In the semi-arid tropics high and sustained agricultural production is hampered by many natural const raints. The SAT farmer mus t cope with the vagaries of a rainy season that is shor t and highl y unpredictable; intense rainfall interspersed with sudden droughts ; soils with low infiltration capacity and thus great water erosion hazard; and, finally, a high evapot ranspiration rate dur ing.

Using data from a household survey, the effects of rural roads on sustainable agriculture was examined in selected semi-arid areas in Kenya. A Tobit model was used to establish the factors that influence the decision to invest in soil conservation measures and the level of investment in terracing and a Three Stage Least Squares (3SLS) method was used to determine the direct and indirect.

and sustained food production. The conference on which this book reports reviewed experience and progress in the improved use of African Vertisols and developed important recommendations for future research and development of this resource.

Vertisols, sometimes called cracking clay soils, cover approximately 80 million hectares of. Conference proceedings are a collection of technical papers presented at a professional association meeting.

These meetings are sometimes referred to as conferences, symposia, workshops, expositions, exhibitions, and the like. The papers go by a variety of names also, like: papers, abstracts, extended abstracts, manuscripts, presentations, etc.

Watershed Organisation Trust (WOTR), is organizing a two-day international consultation of experts to discuss the impacts of this C global temperature rise on Indian agriculture, particularly in semi-arid areas that are dependent heavily on the monsoons.

The conference will consider the implications of climate change on the following.

Others imply that the areas prone to desertification might not be restricted to arid, semi-arid, or subhumid regions, by using such descriptive words as extension, encroachment, and spread of desert characteristics into non-desert regions.

Still others (e.g. Mabbutt and Wilson,p) refer to the intensification of desert-like areas. Soil degradation and C emissions are a threat to sustainable agriculture in many arid and semi-arid areas. For sustainable agriculture, the influence of soil amendments on crop production and soil respiration has been a key focus of research.

A three-year field study to assess how soil amendments influence soil properties, soil respiration (Rs), and yield of maize (Zea mays L.) was conducted.

The influence of the field moisture capacity of a landfill in limiting leachate production is emphasized.

On the basis of the available evidence, relaxation of standards for underliners and leachate collection systems can be fully justified in arid regions and many semi-arid regions. Almond (Prunus dulcis Mill. (D.A. Webb)) plantations in irrigated semi-arid areas need to successfully face the new scenarios of climate change combining sustainable irrigation strategies and tolerant cultivars to water stress.

This work examines the response of young almond (cvs. Guara, Marta, and Lauranne) subjected to different irrigation doses under semi-arid conditions (South-West Spain. The temperature control system of the large-size plasma grid has been developed to realize the long pulse production of high-current negative ions for JTSA.

By using this prototype system for the JTSA ion source, 15 A negative ions has been sustained for s for the first time, which is three times longer than that obtained in JTU.
