In Global Ecology and Conservation
Owing to the huge number of species observations that can be collected by non-professional scientists, “citizen science” has great potential to contribute to scientific knowledge on invasive alien species (IAS). Citizen science has existed for centuries, but the recent adoption of information and communications technology (ICT) in this field (e.g...

Operational monitoring of vegetation and its response to climate change involves the use of vegetation indices (VIs) in relation to relevant climatic data. This study analyses the temporal variations of vegetation indices in response to climatic data (temperature and precipitation) to better understand the phenological changes in the Wa-West and...

In this study, we measured and characterized the relative dielectric constant of mineral soils over the 0.3–3.0 frequency range, and compared our measurements with values of three dielectric constant simulation models (the Wang, Dobson, and Mironov models). The interrelationship between land cover and soil texture with respect to the dielectric...

This chapter considers food waste from the perspective of cities in Asia, presenting case studies from Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Japan, and the Philippines. Interdisciplinary perspectives are brought together, drawing from sociology, industrial ecology, urban planning and public affairs, towards highlighting current efforts to manage waste in...

In Technological Forecasting and Social Change
Technology foresight is crucial in shaping the futures of social good that brings intrinsic and instrumental values to engage different stakeholders in the process. Within this context, the impact of technological innovation on the society from a multi-dimensional perspective is understudied. This paper addresses and investigates this gap by...
Policy Report
Accumulation of plastic wastes in the marine eco-system is growing rapidly with the increase of plastic production and consumption patterns, particularly single-use plastics as well as unsustainable plastic waste management practices. Land-based sources are recognised as the main cause (up to 80% of total marine debris) of marine plastic pollution...

Tonle Sap Lake (TSL), the largest lake in South East Asia, is under increasing pressure from pollution, land-use change, climate change, and development activities in the lake, its basin and the Mekong Basin. Recent changes in the lake hydrological system and its floodplains are becoming a great concern for hundreds of communities relying on the...

In Resilient Policies in Asian Cities: Adaptation to Climate Change and Natural Disasters
Enhancing capacity for building resilient cities is a growing concern among policy makers and international communities to minimize the impacts of climate change and natural disasters. The UN Conference on Sustainable Development 2012 and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (2015–2030) called for urgent need in building resilient...

Green fractional vegetation cover (fc) is an important phenotypic factor in the fields of agriculture, forestry, and ecology. Spatially explicit monitoring of fc via relative vegetation abundance (RA) algorithms, especially those based on scaled maximum/minimum vegetation index (VI) values, has been widely investigated in remote sensing research...
Data or Tool
IGES's GHG emissions database aims to compile the latest information on GHG and CO2 emissions, as reported annually by UNFCCC Annex I countries. The data covers the period from from 1990 up to two years before the submission date of the reports. This database also provides information on target compliance, in order to compare historical emission...
