Describe the elevation, climate, temperature and rainfall (and how they vary across time).

Please answer the following questions first, please read the answers carefully and do not miss any omissions
You should make sure to include the following information about your place:
– Describe the elevation, climate, temperature and rainfall (and how they vary across time)
– Describe the ecosystem (What biome is it? Beyond that, describe the vegetation? What are the dominant plant species? What are the most famous / important / unique other species that are found there? Are there certain species that are “Ecosystem Engineers” or “Keystone Species” – yes, you need to look up what these are, they are new concepts that you should learn for this assignment). PAY ATTENTION TO ELEVATION, if your point is on a mountain or coast the local biome/ ecosystem might be very different from the regional biome.
– How diverse is it? (Is it a Biodiversity hotspot? Does it have a high diversity of plants? Birds? Mammals? Reptiles? Insects? See the various maps from course content.
– Describe the Environmental History of your place? Go back 5000 and 10,000 years.
– Describe how frequent fire is in your ecosystem and how fire impacts your ecosystem (see suggested readings to help you below). Explain why your place has higher or lower fire frequency that other places in Africa
– Describe the history of human influence on your ecosystem
– Discuss how environmental history (past and present climate) and past and present fire regimes impacted the biome, ecosystem and biodiversity of your place. Discuss how and why your place is different from other near by areas (This point is key to this assignment. To get an A on this assignment, you need to not only report each of the above pieces of information, but talk about how they interact with each other).
The following PDF is the data you can refer to. The following doc document contains the entire requirements. Please read it carefully without omission. My location is the data in the picture below. The point number is 69, and xy (longitude,latitude) ignore the zero is 17.8193428,20.8669677,0
Please use Google maps to search, be sure to double check that you don’t make mistakes, this is the most important data. Then complete the article according to the requirements above. The other picture is the requirements of the credits, please complete this article according to the requirements of the credits

What is the role of the public sector in innovation?

What is the role of the public sector in innovation?
The public sector has a reputation for adding red tape where it does not belong, constraining innovation. However, the internet itself is a public sector innovation. The World Wide Web was developed at CERN, a government funded non-profit focussed on nuclear research. When and where should we ask the public sector to act on innovations? When should they choose to support the private sector instead?

Give an example of a kind of quantification that is used to promote more sustainable designs, practices, and/or policies.

Quantification — the process by which observation is used to estimate amount — is a key tool for fostering sustainable designs, practices, and policies. Give an example of a kind of quantification that is used to promote more sustainable designs, practices, and/or policies. Explain what is quantitatively measured and how this measurement can inspire or inform more sustainable designs, practices, and/or policies.
Please only the files I attached as reference.

What’s the relationship between sustainability science and sustainability policy?

Read the three provided articles and find a fourth on the topic of international sustainable policy. International means that the policy should include more than one country working together. Then answer the following questions using all four sources.
What’s the relationship between sustainability science and sustainability policy? How should science influence policy aimed at creating a more sustainable society? What aspects of policy can’t really be informed by science?
Provide the citation of the source that you found as well as a link if it is a website.

Discuss how different organizations collaborate with each other to provide practical solutions to air pollution control issues.

Using the information given in your class lecture notes, directed/investigative reading and the descriiptions of current practice from external professional staff write one report describing either (but not both) of the following:
 Air quality management in the proximity of the Grangemouth industrial complex
 Urban air pollution management in Glasgow and/or other international cities
Your report can describe environmental pollution management activities from a risk-based perspective and should have particular focus on issues relating to the protection of human health. Wider environmental quality management issues covered in seminar presentations can also be included if you wish to do so.
You are free to determine your own report structure. If you have difficulty in determining a structure, you may find part or all of the following risk-based framework helpful:
 Hazard identification: You could describe pollutants & sources and/or processes & activities that lead to emissions
 Exposure assessment: You could describe proximity of source and receptor locations, including any sensitive
receptor locations (schools, hospitals etc.). You could describe environmental exposure monitoring programmes.
 Risk assessment: You could discuss compliance with relevant environmental standards & objectives (see
recommendation below).
 Risk management: You could discuss procedures used for pollutant emission reduction and/or abatement. You
could describe regulatory steps used to attain compliance with current standards and objectives. You could discuss how different organisations collaborate with each other to provide practical solutions to air pollution control issues.

Explain what makes cities both potentially more sustainable than smaller towns but also prone to creating high per-capita environmental impacts.

Learning Goal: I’m working on a ecology writing question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
Cities have the potential to have lower per capita environmental impacts than smaller towns, but frequently cities do not realize this potential. Explain what makes cities both potentially more sustainable than smaller towns but also prone to creating high per-capita environmental impacts.
