APN Science Bulletin Issue 2 March 2012
|Description||The 2012 APN Science Bulletin highlights those APN projects either funded and/or completed in the year of publication (the present year runs from April 2011 – March 2012). The Science Bulletin has four main sections: 1) Featured Articles; 2) Regional Research Projects funded under the Annual Regional Call for Research Proposals (ARCP) Programme; 3) Scientific Capacity Development Projects funded under the CAPaBLE Programme; and 4) Projects funded under the APN’s Focussed Activities Programme.
In the second issue of the APN Science Bulletin, March 2012; all activities that were funded and undertaken since April 2011 have been included. Under featured articles, full scientific research papers have been written and cover a number of major themes in the APN’s science agenda from looking at the effects of pests and diseases on agriculture in a changing climate; water resources and management practices to adapt and/or mitigate the impacts of floods and drought in various sub-regions of Asia and the Pacific; and the use of meteorological data for local farming practices, among others.
Sections 2 and 3 look at the work conducted under the APN’s two main pillars of activities; the ARCP and CAPaBLE programmes, respectively. Section 4 highlights projects funded through two special focussed activities that began in late 2010 and are focussing on Forestry and REDD+ (4 projects) and Sustainable Material Societies (2 projects). These projects are due for completion in 2012 or 2013.
