    Over the past decade, sustainable development has become a pivotal element of innovation in various areas. Industrial biotechnology - through its potential to reform our energy resources - is of specific interest given its controversial reception. With the ongoing shift from a fossil-fuel-based to a bio-based economy, the demand for biomass production for biofuels and biomaterials has increased dramatically. Although countries such as the USA may have enough land-surface available, it is not likely that the necessary biomass to 'fuel' Europe can be grown domestically.

    Wild herbivorous mammals may damage treeline vegetation an cause soil erosion at a local scale. In many high
    mountain areas of Europe and North America, large numbers of red deer have become a threat to the maintenance
    of high-elevation forests and attempts to restore the climatic treeline. In northern Fennoscandia, overgrazing by
    reindeer in combination with mass outbreaks of the autumnal moth are influencing treeline dynamics. Moose are
    also increasingly involved damaging treeline forest. In the Alps, the re-introduction of ibex is causing local damage

    Besides India, there are a few other countries like Mexico, Spain, Pakistan, Bangladesh and China which also make intensive use of groundwater. This highlight reviews groundwater institutions and policies in these countries, with a special focus on the interlinkages between energy and groundwater. It finds that while there are useful lessons from international experience, none of the other countries offer unmetered electricity to farmers as India does. It is this lack of energy accounting and resistance to metering that is at the heart of the invidious energy-irrigation nexus in India.

All too often, these stories remain hidden – silenced through threats and intimidation, or drowned out by louder, more powerful voices. But with the right help, people can and do speak out. From rural villages to global cities, we are working around the world to help people break the silence and stand up against corruption.
