  • A forest of opportunities in Panama

    This video enters into the forests of Panama to learn more about the challenges, opportunities and realities of forest ecosystems and the people who inhabit them. 300 million people live in the world's forests. 1.6 billion people directly depend on them for their livelihoods, and 7 billion people -- that is, all of humanity -- need them to live. Forests carry out vital functions that decisively contribute to life on Earth and are essential for combating climate change. Recognizing the benefits that forests provide us, sustainably managing them and conserving them will help to overcome poverty and achieve sustainability. This video was produced in the framework of the United Nations Programme for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (UN-REDD).

    Panama is one of Latin America's most diverse landscapes, with riches and luxury living alongside drastic poverty. The Panama Canal, however, is a point of pride for many - a feat that is unparalleled in the world of waterway engineering. Designed by the French and finished by the Americans a century ago, it is one of the largest public construction projects in US history. The canal was built to ease the movement of water vessels, such as marine and cargo ships, between two of the world's largest bodies of water - the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Every day, more than 40 ships pass through the canal. But despite increasing cargo tonnage, Panama needed to expand the canal to accommodate a new generation of container ships, the so-called neo-Panamax, which are too big for the old canal lock...

http://www.fdcea.com/ Panama is the first country to understand that climate change is impacting traditional agriculture in Latin America and due to these permanent changes is preparing to completely embrace new technologies such as controlled environment agriculture (which includes vertical farming, greenhouse vegetable production and indoor agriculture.) Their preparation includes designing, developing and constructing the Research Center for Controlled Environment Agricultural Production, or CIPAC for short. CIPAC is a groundbreaking and innovative initiative spearheaded by the Ministry of Agricultural Development (MIDA) and the Foundation for Development in Controlled Environment Agriculture (FDCEA). The FDCEA thought leader and a non-profit that works with experts to define strategies and goals in the world of ag tech and research. Together they believe controlled environment agriculture is one solution for farmers looking to answer to a global problem of a growing population and environmental challenges. The Research Center will be a place where new growers and students can join commercial growers and together learn how to better balance climate, air flow, light, nutrition to grow lettuce, herbs, tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries, melons and much more. This is great news for Panama and all of Latin America.

The canal was built to ease the movement of water vessels, such as marine and cargo ships, between two of the world's largest bodies of water - the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Every day, more than 40 ships pass through the canal. But despite increasing cargo tonnage, Panama needed to expand the canal to accommodate a new generation of container ships, the so-called neo-Panamax, which are too big for the old canal locks. To cater to this larger transit tonnage and global shipping demands, Panama decided to take its two-lane canal and add a new third lane. The new canal designs are set to improve upon the current functionality, such as with the new gates that slide across the channel chambers as opposed to the traditional 'open and shut' gates. Reinvented basins are also a new feature, helping move ships across the canal chambers using water-saving methods. The Panama Canal expansion project is projected to double the capacity of the canal and hence considered a major boon for ports and the Panamanian government. However, the economic promise of the canal runs alongside environmental concerns. How will the canal's expansion affect Panama's ecosystem? TechKnow travelled to Panama to look at the engineering behind the massive expansion project and to hear from biologists and community leaders about Panama's changing ecosystem. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/
