APqc

Em meados dos 70, pesquisadores científicos dos institutos de pesquisa ligados ás secretarias de Estado da Agricultura, Méio Ambiente e Saúde reuniram-se no auditório do Instituto Biológico, em São Paulo, com o objetivo de fundar a sua Associação de classe. Após inúmeros encontros, em 2 de Agosto de 1977 foi criada a Associação de Pesquisadores Científicos do Estado de São Paulo (APqc), tendo como objetivos a divulgação, o fortalecimento e a defesa dos institutos públicos de pesquisa paulistas, das atividades de pesquisa e de pesquisadores científicos ativos e inativos.

The climate crisis is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century – the geopolitical consequences are substantial. As things stand, we are on course for a much warmer world. The repercussions for our foreign policy agenda are significant and therefore a stronger role for foreign policy in international climate policy is called for – namely through climate diplomacy.

MISSION STATEMENT

Economics of Land Degradation Initiative logo

The Economics of Land Degradation (ELD) Initiative is an initiative on the economic benefits of land and land based ecosystems. The initiative highlights the value of sustainable land management and provides a global approach for analysis of the economics of land degradation. It aims to make economics of land degradation an integral part of policy strategies and decision making by increasing the political and public awareness of the costs and benefits of land and land-based ecosystems.


Our Vision


Spread across diverse ecological and social geographies, FES works towards conservation of nature and natural resources through collective action of local communities. The crux of FES efforts lie in locating forests and other natural resources within the prevailing economic, social and ecological dynamics in rural landscapes.

El INC tiene como misión promover una racional subdivisión de la tierra y su adecuada explotación, procurando el aumento y mejora de la producción agropecuaria y la radicación y bienestar del
trabajador rural.

Un tiers des sols de la planète - y compris les terres agricoles, les forêts, les pâturages et les terrains urbains - sont déjà dégradés et on estime que ce chiffre pourrait atteindre près de 90 % d'ici 2050. D'une manière générale, l'érosion des sols est considérée comme l'enlèvement accéléré de la couche arable de la surface terrestre par 'eau, le vent ou les cultures, ce qui entraîne une dégradation des sols. En outre, la dégradation des sols comprend également la détérioration des propriétés biophysiques et chimiques du sol, de l'eau et de la biodiversité. La dégradation des sols se produit naturellement, mais les recherches montrent qu'elle est de plus en plus causée directement ou indirectement par des activités humaines non durables, notamment la déforestation, le surpâturage, l'exploitation minière ou l'agriculture intensive. Cela a entraîné la perte de biodiversité, la désertification et une augmentation significative des émissions de gaz à effet de serre.
