    This study explores the conditions under which a trade sanction can be an effective enforcement mechanism used by the US against China in global greenhouse (GHG) mitigation in agriculture and forestry. The problem has the structure of prisoner’s dilemma and hence both the US and China have incentive to free-ride in GHG emissions abatement. It is found that if the US joined the rest of the world (ROW) in emissions abatement in agriculture and forestry, the US could also convince China to comply with abatement using trade sanctions.

    The relationships between water yields of tributaries and coverage of different vegetation types in the corresponding sub-watersheds were investigated during the wet season in the Heishui River Valley, located in the upper portion of the Yangtze River in western China. Stable isotope analysis was used to calculate the relative contributions of the tributaries to water yield in the main stem of the Heishui River, while relative coverages of the different vegetation types were calculated from classified Landsat 7 TM satellite images of the study area.

    Las mujeres aportan contribuciones significativas a la economía rural en todas las regiones de los países en desarrollo. Sus roles difieren según las regiones, aunque siempre tienen un menor acceso que los hombres a los recursos y oportunidades que necesitan para ser más productivas. Si se incrementara el acceso de las mujeres a la tierra, la ganadería, la educación, los servicios financieros, la extensión, la tecnología y el empleo rural, aumentaría su productividad así como la producción agrícola, la seguridad alimentaria, el crecimiento económico y el bienestar social.

    The aim of this paper is to discuss how the entire food sector, from the farmer’s fi eld to the consumer’s plate, can become more ‘energy-smart’. Becoming energy-smart will require a transformation along the food chain that involves: - relying more on low-carbon energy systems and using energy more effi ciently; - strengthening the role of renewable energy within food systems; - providing greater access to modern energy services for development, and at the same time supporting the achievement of national food security and sustainable development goals.
