    Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectro-radiometer (MODIS) time-series Normalized Differential Vegetation Index (NDVI) products are regularly used for vegetation monitoring missions and climate change analysis. However, satellite observation is affected by the atmospheric condition, cloud state and shadows introducing noise in the data. MODIS state flag helps in understanding pixel quality but overestimates the noise and hence its usability requires further scrutiny. This study has analyzed MODIS MOD09A1 annual data set over Sri Lanka.

    Storage of surface water is widely regarded as a form of insurance against rainfall variability. However, creation of surface storage often endanger the functions of natural ecosystems, and, in turn, ecosystem services that bene t humans. The issues of optimal size, placement and the number of reservoirs in a river basin – which maximizes sustainable bene ts from storage – remain subjects for debate. This study examines the above issues through the analysis of a range of reservoir con gurations in the Malwatu Oya river basin in the dry zone of Sri Lanka.

    The climate-smart agriculture (CSA) concept reflects
    the ambition to improve the integration of agriculture
    development and climate responsiveness. CSA aims to
    achieve food security and broader development goals under a
    changing climate and increasing food demand. CSA initiatives
    sustainably increase agriculture productivity, enhance resilience
    of agro-systems, and reduce/remove greenhouse gases
    (GHGs) from agriculture production, and require planning to
    address tradeoffs and synergies between these three pillars:

    Canada has long been an active and generous resource partner, working closely with FAO in support of a wide range of shared food security and agricultural development goals. Mutual priority themes include child and maternal nutrition, land tenure and resilience building – with much of Canada’s recent cooperation with FAO having been in response to emergencies where host governments have prioritized FAO’s recovery projects. Canadian expertise and staffing resources are also an important asset for FAO.

    Esta guía está acompañada por otra guía que se centra en un aspecto distinto del registro de derechos de tenencia: la creación de un sistema nuevo para registrar los derechos de tenencia por primera vez (Mejorar la manera de registrar los derechos de tenencia). Como estas dos guías abarcan distintos aspectos del registro de derechos, pueden leerse como documentos independientes y, como tales, tienen texto en común. No obstante, algunos lectores pueden beneficiarse con la lectura de ambas.
