High and middle class household are less vulnerable than undernourished households. Overall, this biofuel programs help to expand agricultural and rural development and also that contribute to reduction of the greenhouse gas emission. Besides, this will eventually contribute to the development of biofuel production, which will harmonize the environment and food availability (Koizumi, 2013). However, the development of both agriculture and rural area can bring negative impact to their own country food security and also can affect the environment in negative way (Koizumi, 2013). AGING PEOPLE AND FOOD SECURITY IN
2. Sources of Biomass: As the researcher mentioned before, Biomass can be derived from either plant based materials waste or animal based materials waste. But first how do plants and animals store energy? Where does the energy come from? Basically, plants store energy by the process of photosynthesis (when plants absorb energy from the sun).
Additionally, this country’s workers have no ethic nationalities for equal rights and autonomy, union representation and political enfranchisement are not allowed. The creation of sweatshop in Myanmar is also very commons in Myanmar, in which long hours and low pay are the typical conditions of work. Thus, if TATA conduct business in Myanmar, will face problem of labour employment which is the potentially employed child or women been forced as worker, against the proper human right. Other than human rights, corruption is also
It has a promising potential to establish large scale solar power installations. However, solar energy is still at the infancy stage due to the high cost of photovoltaic cells and solar electricity tariff rate. The Malaysian Government is keen to develop solar energy as one of the significant sources of energy in the country. Greater emphasis will be placed on energy efficiency under the Tenth Malaysia Plan (2011–2015). This paper discusses present and future situation of solar power in Malaysia, utilization of solar energy and the strategies taken by the Malaysian government and Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) to promote solar energy thermal applications and electricity power generation in the future .Beside , the operation of solar power systems does not produce any air pollution .
Introduction With growing development and population increase in South-East Asia (SEA), demand for energy has increased greatly with an estimate of 7% per annum for the next twenty years (MRC, 2010). Hydropower has been identified as the solution to their energy woes and with the Mekong basin having an estimated hydropower potential of 60000 MW, it clearly represents a substantial and potentially lucrative source of energy for consumption and export. (Kuenzer, et al., 2012). Laos is one country in which such hydropower developments can be seen. There are currently 60 dams planned or under construction including plans for nine mainstream dams.
Since all the things in Myanmar are under the domination of government, tourism in Myanmar is also affected by political unrest. As Judd indicated, tourism is a significant revenue of the regime by government, if there comes a fire from regime, the international companies have paid for the weapons. The words were come from the Burma campaign, which encouraged the companies of UK to invest tours in Myanmar, in other words, to supply the regime’s coffer. And when there comes a fight, the tourists cannot be protected. In addition, the human rights in Myanmar is misused by the military such as forced labor among children.
One of the disadvantages of biofuels is that they aren’t as clean as we may think due to the use of fertiliser to grow these crops. Fertiliser is a nitrogen-rich compound, and nitrogen is consumed by bacteria that produces nitrous oxide. The release of nitrous oxide, an even more harmful GHG than carbon dioxide, into our atmosphere creates yet another dreaded greenhouse effect. The nitrogen and phosphorus present in fertilisers can also cause eutrophication which can lead to a loss of biodiversity. These aspects of biofuels serve as significant disadvantages to the
It occurs in the form of living or recently living plants and waste and is contained inside the plants and animals. Conversion of biomass into other energy is done by combustion, gasification, pyrolysis, bio-digestion and fermentation. Disadvantages: They are renewable but there is risk of deforestation. It requires a lot of water. Biomass is inefficient as compared to other fossil fuels.
Indonesia is one of the developing countries that face the increasing demand for electricity by 10% each year (especially in the islands outside Java), and therefore the government needs additional capacity to produce about 6 gigawatts of electricity per year. Indonesia is one of the largest geothermal reserves in the world, hence the government aims to increase the role of geothermal energy as an electricity producer, due to the increased energy demand in Indonesia and because of the population growth combined with the expansion of economic structure, which led to a growing number of middle class and also the growth of industrialization and new investments, the government recently has done efforts to facilitate investment in the geothermal expansion which has long been
