Discusses prospects for US climate policy in the Biden Administration.
With the advent of high-spatial resolution (HSR) satellite imagery, urban land use/land cover (LULC) mapping has become one of the most popular applications in remote sensing. Due to the importance of context information (e.g., size/shape/texture) for classifying urban LULC features, Geographic Object-Based Image Analysis (GEOBIA) techniques are...
Presenting IGES-wide city work at WRI
A collection of recent and on-going activities at IGES were presented to WRI experts. The presentation focused on three themes, namely: (1) tools and data; (2) research and projects; and (3) Networks.
A new method was developed for mapping forest, agricultural, and urban land cover using remote sensing imagery. It is designed to better detect small land cover objects (e.g. small forest or agricultural patches) and monitor their change (e.g. fine-scale deforestation) using freely-available satellite imagery.
Food Waste Issues and Countermeasures in Other Countries: comparison with the situation in Malaysia
Household Hazardous Waste Management: Experiences in Japan and other countries/regions
For effective and practical implementation of border carbon adjustment, it is crucial to determine the carbon content of imports/exports. In this paper we discussed two criteria. One is direct carbon emissions, which accounts for direct emissions generated from production. The other is embodied emissions which accounts for the total emissions...
