Planning domain The study area falls within the central part of the Cape Floristic Region hotspot, and much of the area was identified as a priority for the conservation of both biodiversity pattern, e.g., species occurrences, and process, e.g., migration corridors, in an earlier, broad-scale conservation plan for this hotspot (Cowling et al Cited by: (REA). Least-cost power investments have been pursued to provide adequate and reliable service. The Ugandan government has also collaborated with the East African Community on regional power interconnection. This regional approach is expected to benefit all countries involved by diversifying supply sources and reducing investment Size: 1MB. It is the most comprehensive literature I have come across in terms of the role of corridors, corridor design and implementation. As a current graduate student working on a corridor project, this book has been incredibly helpful in planning my field work in ground truthing Least-Cost path corridors/5. More from this journal.

Clustered development tends to have lower public service costs, but these savings are not generally reflected in development and utility fees.   Selected by The New York Times Book Review as a Notable Book of the Year In this gripping account of the quest for the energy that our world needs, Daniel Yergin continues the riveting story begun in his Pulitzer Prize-winning book, The Prize.A master storyteller as well as a leading energy expert, Yergin shows us how energy is an engine of global political and economic/5. Introduction. A.

When conservation or demand-management strategies enter the mix of options, as least-cost planning dictates, the concept of avoided cost gains substantial relevance. Demand-m anag ement strategies range from efficiency-oriented pricing, to customer education programs, to rebates and ret rofits.

In energy planning, the principal emphasis is on the comprehensive and disaggregate analysis of the energy sector, with regard to the main interactions with the rest of the economy.

In a strictly technical sense, the energy planner's role may be confined to seeking the least-cost method of meeting future energy requirements. Soil as a Sponge To Reduce the Impacts of Drought: A Least Cost Water Conservation Opportunity California is in its third year of a historically acute drought – was the driest year on record.

In compensating for the reduced surface water supplies, Californians are relying heavily on groundwater to get us through the crisis. This book tries to answer many questions, in order to reach to the required conclusions and recommendations.

The questions are as follows: What is the urban conservation. How do cities with historic depth deal with modern planning policies.

Cost-effective conservation (CEC) refers to the selection of projects that incorporates both benefits and costs, measured commensurately in money, to maximize conservation relative to a budget constraint.

Reduced roadway design approaches accept a lower level of service on a facility by reducing number of lanes, lane width, design year/life, or design speed.

Multidisciplinary goal setting, planning, teamwork, and synergistic application of scientific and engineering knowledge have shown that specific habitat protection, enhancement, restoration, and creation objectives can be achieved more reliably by improving collaboration among practitioners in the.

Introduction. Investments in biodiversity conservation must be strategically allocated, because resources are severely limited [].As a result, approaches for designing conservation plans that systematically represent a region's biodiversity have proliferated and become ever more sophisticated [2,3].Although the biological aspects of these approaches have advanced rapidly, relatively little Cited by: Connectivity Conservation - edited by Kevin R.

Crooks November For the first time in Earth's long history, one species – Homo sapiens – completely dominates the globe. Over 6 billion people now inhabit the planet, and that number is growing at an alarming rate. Systematic, science-based conservation planning is a hallmark of the Conservancy.

For biodiversity to thrive, habitats need to be protected, enhanced, or restored not just in the still wild places on the planet but also where people live and make their livelihoods.

Multi-disciplinary planning can help elucidate where the highest priority places are and what needs to happen there – and. @article{osti_, title = {A statewide, least-cost plan for Rhode Island: Final report on the initial work of the Rhode Island least-cost planning committee}, author = {}, abstractNote = {This report presents the initial, statewide Least-Cost Plan for Rhode Island developed by the Rhode Island Least-Cost Planning Committee (RILCPC).).

Science and technology have played so dominant a role in conservation policies and programs that the scientific method has been used not only as an analytical technique for solving resource problems but as an objective of public policy as well.

The authority of science has been used regularly to justify conservation programs. Location theory has also been used outside of economics, for example in conservation biology, where it can help to find areas that would be good to study, taking into account previous studies.
