Reducing nitrogen and phosphoric pollution from animal production
Reducing organic contamination from animal farming
Animal production has intensified in concert with demand. This has led to unacceptable increases in organic pollution. New measures are being sought to reduce such organic pollution.
Technical developments and progress in the knowledge of nutritional requirements and management of animals have introduced solutions to reduce animal production pollution. New feed technologies such as feed systems (extended use of amino acids and related compounds, use of enzymes and continued use of growth promoting substances) and feed systems (formulation closer to requirements, phase feeding and increased use of highly digestible material) and feed supplements can be utilized. Feed related measures can be implemented quickly as they do not require major structural changes, heavy investment or any time consuming processes, whilst their impact is significant. Animals can be bred for better feed conversion and dietary protein utilization. Ammonia volatilization from slurry and litter can be reduced by improving animal housing design and biological/chemical treatment of slurry and litter. Clean environmental conditions should be maintained. Distribution, utilization processing and handling of slurry/manure on farming land can be improved.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
