Rational use of water resources and quality of drinking water discussed in Minsk today.
 
03:03
Over 150 experts gathered at the 4th international water forum and agreed that water resources become policy like oil and gas. Sergei Gusachenko reports: Today some regions of the world struggle for water resources. (Alexander Stankevich, acting director of the Central Research Institute for Complex Use of Water Resources) In future water will be more and more expensive. Some politicians fear that the 21st century will become the century of wars for water resources. Scientists of the majority of countries have been thinking how to save water for many years. And Belarus is not an exception. The state program on clean water for the next 5 years was accepted this year. Br. 4 trillion will be allocated for its implementation. (Vitaly Kulik, First Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection of Belarus) In comparison with last year expenses for the state program on clean water multiplied. A new program stipulates building and reconstruction of water cleaning objects. In Belarus water consumption is 218 liters daily per one person. The indicator is higher than in majority countries of Europe. But due to water-efficient technologies Belarus reduces water withdrawal by millions of cubic meters annually. (Alexander Stankevich, acting director of the Central Research Institute for Complex Use of Water Resources) Almost all cities and towns of Belarus drink water from underground sources. They are deeper, cleaner and better-protected from pollution. Only Gomel and one third of Minsk drink chlorinate water from surface water intake. (Vitaly Kulik, First Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection of Belarus) Moreover, Belarus' drinking water is recognized best water in the countries of the former USSR.

Belarus to develop geothermal energy.
 
01:06
Belarus to develop geothermal energy. Development perspectives of this aspect were considered today by the State Council for issues of complex use of mineral resources. The heat of underground water is actively used in other countries. Belarus also has some experience in this sphere. A modern geothermal station operates near Brest. A geothermal map has been developed in the country and scientists know at which depth the waters are located and which temperature they are. Despite the high mineralization, which by the way complicates water extraction, specialists are sure that the development of geothermal energy is perspective for Belarus.

28 207 ha of peatlands restored in Belarus
 
06:43
UNDP-GEF Project "Renaturalization and Sustainable Management of Peatlands in Belarus to Combat Land Degradation, Ensure Conservation of Globally Valuable Biodiversity and Mitigate Climate Change" Belarus is a country with significant amount of peatlands the most part of which, about 51%, have been effected by the large-scale drainage of the 1960s. The significant part of the drained mires is not used at present. The peatlands are a source of peat fires, land degradation, emissions of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. As a result of drainage, large areas of peatlands require restoration at present days. These include more than 200 000 ha of peatlands after peat extraction, 24 000 hа of degraded peatlands ineffectively used for forestry, more than 250 000 ha of degraded peat soils ineffectively used for agriculture and nearly 500,000 ha of natural mires with disrupted hydrological regime. 15 pilot sites were restored within the UNDP/GEF project in Belarus. Among them are raised bogs, fens and transitional mires with the total area of 28207 ha. The process of restoration is rather long and requires much work on different restoration stages. At the initial stage much preparatory work was conducted by scientists who elaborated scientific rationales for restoration of each of the pilot sites. Throughout the whole restoration process the project experts conducted monitoring of flora and fauna and measured dynamics of CO2 emissions. Engineers conducted design and exploration work including leveling of the areas. Based on this data they elaborated design documents for construction of different facilities to regulate the hydrological regime of the pilot sites. The strategy of restoration of the hydrological regime within the project was based on uniform rise of water levels throughout the restored territory to the soil surface via cascade canal closure. For this purpose various water flow regulating devices were constructed. To name a few among them are sluices, soil flow-around dykes, soil dykes with walls made of pales, rock-filled dams, wooden dykes made of bars or boards. In cases when the hydrological regime of peatlands is disturbed by adjacent draining systems designated for agriculture or peat extraction, a special antifiltration dam is built. Some of them were built with heavy machines, like excavators and bulldozers. In the places difficult to access soil dykes were built with hand labour using local materials: peat, wooden pales made of dead pine trunks. During construction monitoring filed visits were conducted by the project team, engineers and experts. As a result of re-wetting wetland plant associations were restored at the project sites and habitats for globally endangered biodiversity were re-established. In 2009 and 2010 such globally threatened ornithological species as Greater Spotted Eagle, Black-tailed Godwit, Curlew were observed at the restored sites as well as other rare species like Black Stork, Great white egret, Bittern, Crane and typical wetland species (Snipe, Sedge Warbler, Reed Bunting, Great Reed Warbler, Crake, Lapwing, different duck species). Appearance of cranes is indicative of restoration of the mire ecosystem. As a result of the project the risk of peat fires was significantly diminished. Before the project 5-15 peat fires were observed at the project sites per year, whereas after re-wetting only 1 peat fire was observed in 2009. Degraded peatlands constitute one of essential sources of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. The practical implementation of the project has revealed that rewetting is an efficient and probably the cheapest way of reducing CO2 emissions. After rewetting mire vegetation is restored and the peatlands are able to absorb huge amounts of carbon dioxide and accumulate them in the peat deposit as organic substance -- peat. As a result of re-wetting the total reduction of CO2 emissions from the restored peatlands is about 300 000 t per year. Restoration of degraded peatlands has had positive social-economic effect for the local population as in some areas peatlands are an important source of income for local people. Re-wetting created more possibilities for fishing and hunting, gathering berries (mainly cranberries and bog bilberries) and mushrooms. It has also improved conditions for re-appearance of medicinal plants as well as created more places for rest. The most significant indicator of the project's success is the fact that in 2010 when in Russia hundreds of hectares were encompassed with peat fires, no peat fires were observed in Belarus.

🇳🇿 New Zealand: Polluted Paradise PI | People & Power
 
25:01
Polluted Paradise, New Zealand (Part 1) - People and Power New Zealand's pristine and abundant rivers and lakes have long been central to its proud reputation as a land of breath-taking natural beauty - and fundamental to a clean, green, outdoorsy brand that's used to attract millions of foreign visitors every year. But are its waterways really as sparkling and bountiful as the tourist ads suggest? It seems not. Although the issue hasn't attracted huge global attention, for some years now campaign groups such as Greenpeace have been ringing alarm bells about the deteriorating quality - and curiously diminishing volume - of New Zealand's fresh water, problems they say are both directly attributable to the country's most profitable industry and in danger of being exacerbated by government-backed projects in support of that industry. People & Power asked filmmaker Naashon Zalk to find out more. His two-part investigation, which we are screening over consecutive episodes, raises troubling questions about what can happen when a nation's desire for economic growth, however understandable and justifiable it may be, takes undue precedence over the environment.

Hunting beavers a way of life for trappers in Belarus
 
04:07
Sergey Kononov pulls his quarry from a river, a dead beaver, caught in a trap he set the day before. His carefully fills out forms on the spot. Beaver hunting is legal in Belarus, as the growing population of these aquatic mammals is proving problematic and they are causing damage to agriculture. Hunting is restriction and hunters need to acquire a license to capture beavers, issued by the Belarussian society of hunters and fishermen. Kononov makes his living from catching beavers and he is careful to follow the correct procedures. When all the papers are signed and stamped by the 'Hunter and Fishermen Association', the skinning can begin. A sharp knife, like the one Kononov uses, can skin a beaver in a coupe of minutes in a clean and professional manner. On a typical day, a beaver hunter can catch up to two animals. A lot depends on luck, but during one season Kononov can easily catch around 50 beavers and martens and earn a couple of thousand dollars for his work. The marten fur is four times more valuable than the beaver one, as the prices for beavers have fallen dramatically. " For a fur like this, I get 20 monetary units. What kind of price is that, when in the Soviet times the price was more than 100 Soviet rubles? A beaver hunter in Soviet times, after catching 40 beavers, could buy a new 'Zhiguli'. But now I have to catch 300 of them to buy a new 'Zhiguli', says Kononov. A "monetary unit" is a euphemism for a US dollar. One Soviet ruble was officially 60 US cents. A Zhiguli was a car made in Soviet Union, known as Lada outside of the USSR. Nothing gets thrown away, and Kononov does his best to sell the beaver meat to gourmet restaurants. "And the beaver itself, the meat of it, is being bought by owners of restaurants, and cooked to fussy gourmets. Well, they buy it for up to 4 euro ($5.4 US Dollars) per kilo", says the hunter Although beavers are no longer in the IUCN Red Book of endangered species, the control of their population is still under tight grip of the authorities. However, the hunter is hopeful the future can bring change in the legislature, which would mean more profit: "It is, after all, a currency, a sort of soft gold. So, God bless, maybe something will soon change in the hunting legislation, and new laws will let us hunt more" he says. Kononov estimates the beaver numbers to have fallen lately, but not to the critical levels they were in the nineties: "Lately, the numbers of beavers have lessened. And for one simple reason - they have bred so quickly that they have eaten almost everything in the area, and they have nowhere to go, everything that they could - they have already sank under water. Let's say, if before there were around 70,000 of them here, then now, I think, there aren't more than 60,000 anymore", says the hunter. According to the ministry of natural resources and environment protection of Belarus, the beaver population is now 80,000. Earlier this year the beaver population was blamed for a number of attacks on people, including the death of a fisherman from wounds inflicted by a beaver. There have been several cases of beavers turning aggressive when confronted by humans after wandering near homes, shops and schools throughout Belarus. The large rodents can weigh up to 30 kilograms (about 65 pounds) and stand up to a metre (three feet) high on their hind legs.

Ministry of Nature Resources and Environmental Protection to utilize mineral resources intensively
 
02:43
Ministry of Nature Resources and Environmental Protection to utilize mineral resources of Belarus more intensively. Part of it is already used quite effectively: oil, potassium and common salt. But there are those which aren't working in benefit of the Belarusian economy. Sergei Kurilo reports: (Anatoly Lis, Deputy Minister of Nature Resources and Environmental Protection of the Republic of Belarus: "First of all, these are oil shale and brown coal.") Oil shale has already been found in the Luban and Turov deposits. According to geologists, this direction is very prospective. (Vladimir Varaksa, Deputy Director of the Geology Department of the Ministry of Nature Resources and Environmental Protection of the Republic of Belarus) To include the mineral resources in the economy, not only mining complexes are to be built. In some cases even new cities can appear on the map of Belarus. But millions or even billions of dollars are necessary for this. (Anatoly Lis, Deputy Minister of Nature Resources and Environmental Protection of the Republic of Belarus) Potassium salt is going to be extracted not only in Soligorsk. For example, the quality of this resource at the Petrikovskiy deposit is even better. (Vladimir Varaksa, Deputy Director of the Geology Department of the Ministry of Nature Resources and Environmental Protection of the Republic of Belarus) The extraction of proper mineral resources in Belarus will allow replacing import. For example, today our country consumes approximately 200,000 tons of sodium carbonate per year. Mostly, these are glass factories. And all the necessary rough materials are imported. An investor has already been found for the factory on the production of sodium carbonate in Belarus. (Vladimir Varaksa, Deputy Director of the Geology Department of the Ministry of Nature Resources and Environmental Protection of the Republic of Belarus: "It is planned to build a factory near Mozyr with a capacity not less than 300,000 tons of sodium carbonate per year. This will cover all the necessities of the country and a part of the production can even be exported.")

Zhuk standing outside house STORYLINE: Belarus and Russia's natural gas monopoly signed a five-year contract for gas supplies early on Monday, just hours before Russia had threatened to cut off supplies in a price dispute. Under the agreement, Belarus will pay US$100 per 1,000 cubic metres (35,315 cubic feet), a reduction from the US$105 that Gazprom had demanded, according to Gazprom spokesman Sergei Kupriyanov. The agreement also calls for Gazprom to purchase 50 percent of the shares in Beltransgaz, the Belarusian pipeline network, Kupriyanov said. Gazprom initially had stipulated that Belarus pay US$30 of the new price in Beltransgaz shares, but under the new contract Belarus will pay for the gas all in cash and Gazprom will buy the pipeline shares in cash. Although the price demanded by Gazprom is well below world market prices for natural gas, it still is likely to be a tough blow to Belarus. Sergei Sidorski, Prime Minister of Belarus said, "There was a tense atmosphere among the Belarussian delegation since we have agreed and signed a contract whose conditions for the delivery of gas are not at all favourable for Belarus. In 2007 we will pay $100, that is in fact twice as much as we paid in 2006, more than twice as much." The country retains a mostly centralised, Soviet-style economy, and its industries have depended on cheap Russian gas to be competitive. Pensioner Anna Zhuk lives in the town of Osipovich, some 100 kilometres (62 miles) from the capital Minsk. Until recently her small wooden house was heated by an ancient wood-burning stove. But three months ago she got her own gas supply and has, in her own words, been living like a lord ever since. But this has come at a price. Anna's monthly pension is equivalent to just $150 monthly. Her gas bill comes to just over half of that. From the remaining $65 she has to pay for food as well as electricity and water. She can rarely afford to switch on the lights in her house and spends the evenings watching her old black and white television in darkness. While Anna will be relieved that the gas crisis is over, she still faces an increase in her gas bill which she can ill afford.

Oil Palm BMP - Mature Stage
 
31:46
The International Plant Nutrition Institute (IPNI) is a not-for-profit, science-based organization dedicated to responsible management of plant nutrition for the benefit of the human family. As a global organization, IPNI has initiatives addressing the world's growing need for food, fuel, fiber, and feed. Best Management Practices (BMP) for nutrient stewardship encourage the concept of applying the right product, at the right rate, at the right time, and in the right place. Agriculture in South Asia and Southeast Asia regions is under extreme pressure to deliver unprecedented productivity to meet demand, while facing increasing pressures for land and water resources from other sectors. In Southeast Asia both subsistence and plantation crops are seeing sustained price increases. These are anticipated to continue for at least the medium term. In both cases, agricultural growth must be contained within the same ecological footprint. Land is not available for expansion in many areas. Even where it is, society demands that agriculture should not take more land but improve productivity to produce more from the same or less land and water resources. The only option is to intensify production and this seems easily achievable through the more intelligent use of existing technologies, and specifically so, plant nutrition - yields and efficiency of plantations is far from the potential and highly patchy. The goal is therefore to support intensification of oil palm plantation agriculture, which enables it to produce more while not increasing its ecological footprint, or reducing it where and when required. IPNI has worked in close partnership with oil palm practitioners to conduct oil palm management research. The essential knowledge generated is shared and distributed via the IPNI Oil Palm Series of field handbooks, pocket guides, books and posters.

Fukushima Bottled Water Wins Gold Award #1 for Quality
 
06:14
Belarus Expert: Radiation limits too high after Fukushima — Japan allows 20 times more cesium in drinking water than near Chernobyl. Three university professors say some Fukushima bottled water causes friendly act to the body. TOKYO, Japan — Vladimir Babenko is deputy director of the Belrad Institute of Radiation Safety in the former Soviet republic of Belarus. Babneko advised local residents after the meltdown at Chernobyl, just across the Belarus border in Ukraine.

National Parks of Ukraine: Encoded Identity
 
01:35
There are as many as 86 national parks in Ukraine. Different flora, fauna, landscapes and water resources make each park totally unique. But visitors often miss the key attractions because they don’t know what they’re looking out for and don’t understand the uniqueness of each park and what they have to offer. So how could we design a logo which indicates all these key features in a way which everyone can relate to and gives every park its own identity under the same graphic umbrella? We realised a single logo with each park’s name below wouldn’t be enough. So we set about creating a unique one for each park, built using elements that represent a natural feature within that park…and united by a graphic look that all Ukrainians could relate to – our iconic traditional embroidery. Because really, nature is the fabric of all the elements of each park. Now, just by looking at one of the park’s logo, it is like you are taking a look inside the park itself.

Belarus Interesting Facts Cities People & Nature | Traveling Belarus Interesting Facts Cities People & Nature | Traveling Belarus (/bɛləˈruːs/; Belarusian: Беларусь, IPA: [bʲɛlaˈrusʲ]), officially the Republic of Belarus (Belarusian: Рэспубліка Беларусь, Russian: Республика Беларусь), formerly known by its Russian name Byelorussia or Belorussia (Russian: Белоруссия), is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe[7] bordered by Russia to the northeast, Ukraine to the south, Poland to the west, and Lithuania and Latvia to the northwest. Its capital and most populous city is Minsk. Over 40% of its 207,600 square kilometres (80,200 sq mi) is forested. Its major economic sectors are service industries and manufacturing.[8] Until the 20th century, different states at various times controlled the lands of modern-day Belarus, including the Principality of Polotsk (11th to 14th centuries), the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth, and the Russian Empire. In the aftermath of the 1917 Russian Revolution, Belarus declared independence as the Belarusian People's Republic, which was conquered by Soviet Russia. The Socialist Soviet Republic of Byelorussia became a founding constituent republic of the Soviet Union in 1922 and was renamed as the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic (Byelorussian SSR). Belarus lost almost half of its territory to Poland after the Polish–Soviet War of 1919–1921. Much of the borders of Belarus took their modern shape in 1939, when some lands of the Second Polish Republic were reintegrated into it after the Soviet invasion of Poland, and were finalized after World War II.[9][10][11] During WWII, military operations devastated Belarus, which lost about a third of its population and more than half of its economic resources.[12] The republic was redeveloped in the post-war years. In 1945 the Byelorussian SSR became a founding member of the United Nations, along with the Soviet Union and the Ukrainian SSR.[13] The parliament of the republic proclaimed the sovereignty of Belarus on 27 July 1990, and during the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Belarus declared independence on 25 August 1991.[14] Alexander Lukashenko has served as the country's first president since 1994. Belarus has been labeled "Europe's last dictatorship" by some Western journalists,[15][16] on account of Lukashenko's self-described authoritarian style of government.[17][18][19] Lukashenko continued a number of Soviet-era policies, such as state ownership of large sections of the economy. Elections under Lukashenko's rule have been widely criticized as unfair; and according to many countries and organizations, political opposition has been violently suppressed. Belarus is also the last country in Europe using the death penalty.[20][21][22] Belarus's Democracy Index rating is the lowest in Europe, the country is labelled as "not free" by Freedom House, as "repressed" in the Index of Economic Freedom, and is rated as by far the worst country for press freedom in Europe in the 2013–14 Press Freedom Index published by Reporters Without Borders, which ranks Belarus 157th out of 180 nations.[23] In 2000, Belarus and Russia signed a treaty for greater cooperation, forming the Union State. Over 70% of Belarus's population of 9.49 million resides in urban areas. More than 80% of the population is ethnic Belarusian, with sizable minorities of Russians, Poles and Ukrainians. Since a referendum in 1995, the country has had two official languages: Belarusian and Russian. The Constitution of Belarus does not declare any official religion, although the primary religion in the country is Eastern Orthodox Christianity. The second-most widespread religion, Roman Catholicism, has a much smaller following; nevertheless, Belarus celebrates both Orthodox and Catholic versions of Christmas and Easter as national holidays.[24] Belarus is a member of the United Nations since its founding, the Commonwealth of Independent States, CSTO, EEU, and the Non-Aligned Movement. Belarus has shown no aspirations for joining the European Union but nevertheless maintains a bilateral relationship with the organisation, and likewise participates in two EU projects: the Eastern Partnership and the Baku Initiative.

Dismal Swamp Water Resources - NASA DEVELOP Spring 2013 @ Langley Research Center
 
01:54
The Great Dismal Swamp (GDS) has an annual hydrologic cycle that results in changing water levels throughout the year. The hydrological cycle in the GDS is an important factor affecting ecosystem health by controlling species composition, habitat dynamics, and threats from wildfires. The hydrology of the GDS has been modified through years of human activities. The construction of canals and ditches, with their accompanying spoil bank roads, have combined to form the most significant alteration to the swamp's water regime. The refuge's ditches form a network that channels much of the current surface flow into Lake Drummond, which in turn drains into the Feeder Ditch through a gated spillway and then into the Dismal Swamp Canal. Shifts in hydrology, soil, and vegetation have become more pronounced in the last 30 years due to the construction of ditches and canals. Peatlands in the GDS, formed from the accumulation of organic matter into the soils, are several feet thick and capable of burning when dry. Peat fires are dangerous and difficult to fight, as they travel underground through the peat soils and move behind firefighting lines. Hydrology management in the swamp has focused on raising the water table. Landsat 5 and 7 were used to create Normalized Difference Vegetation Indices that can be used as an indirect interpretation tool of changing hydrological conditions over the last decade. These products will help to aid in revealing areas that are especially vulnerable to drying or inundation. For more information, go to: http://develop.larc.nasa.gov/ Follow us online!

Root Stopper Cultivator Launch 2018 Tiustech
 
02:29
Root Stopper ™ Cultivator is designed specially for a mechanical weed control. The efficient machine is a combination of a traditional cultivator and a PTO driven rotor separator. Cultivator tines first loosen and prepare the layer of top soil and the weed roots for the rotor separator. Clock-wise rotating spike rotor then throws the whole layer up in the air. Light weight roots and other weed residues are having bigger drag coefficient than the soil particles and due to this will be landing on to the top of the field surface. On the top the field, far away from the nutrient and water resources of the soil, the roots will be affected by the sun rays and the wind and will be drying up to lose their power of life.

Friday, February 25, 2011 Mapping and Managing A Scarce Resource in the Middle East Eilon Adar Director, Zuckerberg Institute for Water Research, Professor of Hydrology, Ben Gurion University Fresh water is necessary to human health, habitation and well being, but it is a scarce resource in much of the world, particularly in the arid lands of the Middle East. Accurate understanding of the sources of water, its dynamics, and the factors that determine its quality is crucial to properly managing this essential resource. This lecture will describe empirical and computational methods that have been developed for measuring groundwater flux in arid basins and for modeling its flow in complex hydrological systems, like the Arava aquifer shared by Jordan and Israel. The use of this information in developing comprehensive water management regimes will be described, with particular reference to arid land water management in the Middle East. Technology for studying and for managing water resources will be described, together with its use in management plans. International cooperation in managing trans-border water resources in the Middle East will also be discussed.

As a global organization, IPNI has initiatives addressing the world's growing need for food, fuel, fiber, and feed. Best Management Practices (BMP) for nutrient stewardship encourage the concept of applying the right product, at the right rate, at the right time, and in the right place. Agriculture in South Asia and Southeast Asia regions is under extreme pressure to deliver unprecedented productivity to meet demand, while facing increasing pressures for land and water resources from other sectors. In Southeast Asia both subsistence and plantation crops are seeing sustained price increases. These are anticipated to continue for at least the medium term. In both cases, agricultural growth must be contained within the same ecological footprint. Land is not available for expansion in many areas. Even where it is, society demands that agriculture should not take more land but improve productivity to produce more from the same or less land and water resources. The only option is to intensify production and this seems easily achievable through the more intelligent use of existing technologies, and specifically so, plant nutrition - yields and efficiency of plantations is far from the potential and highly patchy. The goal is therefore to support intensification of oil palm plantation agriculture, which enables it to produce more while not increasing its ecological footprint, or reducing it where and when required. IPNI has worked in close partnership with oil palm practitioners to conduct oil palm management research. The essential knowledge generated is shared and distributed via the IPNI Oil Palm Series of field handbooks, pocket guides, books and posters.
