In the agricultural sector there is an especially urgent need to develop and disseminate adaptation prioritization tools given the prominence of the sector in INDCs to the Paris Climate Agreement.

The trace element selenium is essential for human health and is required in a narrow dietary concentration range. Insufficient selenium intake has been estimated to affect up to 1 billion people worldwide. Dietary selenium availability is controlled by soil–plant interactions, but the mechanisms governing its broad-scale soil distributions are largely unknown. Using data-mining techniques, we modeled recent (1980–1999) distributions and identified climate–soil interactions as main controlling factors.

Solar power is surging in Australia and around the world, on the back of scaled-up production and continually falling costs. The new report finds that the solar rollout will continue to go gangbusters this year, with more than 20 industrial-scale installations set to go ahead across the country, and another 3700 megawatts in the pipeline.

An Act to provide for geographically restriction-free trade transaction of agricultural produce across the State/Union Territory (UT) and country; to give freedom to the agriculturist to see their produce across time and space; to enhance transparency in trade operations and price settlement mechanism through adoption of electronic and other inn

The CIAT-led project ‘Climate-smart soil protection and rehabilitation in Benin, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, India and Kenya’, supports the BMZ-GIZ Soil program, and intends to widen the scope of soil protection and rehabilitation for food security by aligning with the goals of CSA.

The global stock of electric vehicles (EVs) reached 1 million in 2015 and exceeded 2 million by the end of 2016. Yet faster growth is needed for EVs to fulfil their role in the global energy transition, both through lowering vehicle emissions and boosting renewable energy use.

The air Indians breathe is turning more toxic by the day and an average of two deaths take place daily due to air pollution, says a new study.

Rising focus on the increasing awareness of existing solar systems, ambitious plans announced on the amount of solar power generation over the next few years, cancellation of subsidies over a considerable period and their reintroduction, and of course, the “solar scam” are some of the issues at the forefront of green energy in India.

The new ‘Indian Food Composition Tables, 2017’, provides nutritional information on 151 discrete food components for 528 key foods. All data presented in this book originate from regional composite samples averaged for six geographical regions of the country.
