CANALS AND CHANNELS
LAND CONSERVATION OPTIONS
By: Candace Nguyen
It is refers to practices and technologies that aim to integrate the management of land, water, and biodiversity
It is also refers to other environmental resources to meet human needs while ensuring the long-term sustainability of ecosystem services and livelilhoods
It is a process in a charged environment between environmental protection and the guarantee claim of ecosystem services on the hand
Economics of Land Degration (ELD)
seeks to establish a cost benefit analysis on the practice of sustainable land management highlighting its economic benefits
For example, Australia and New Zealand have both agreed on sustainable land management with respect to climate change as part of their government programmes
SUSTAINABLE LAND-USE STRATEGIES
Roadless area conservation is a conservation policy limiting road construction and a resulting environmental impact on the designated area of public land
U.S. Forest Service areas known as inventoried roadless areas known as inventoried roadless areas.
Forest Service 2001 Roadless Area Conservation Rule
establishes prohibitions on road construction and timber harvesting on 58.5 million acres of inventoried roadless areas on National Forest System lands
The 2001 Roadless Rule
to provide lasting protection for inventoried roadless areas within the National Forest System in the context of multiple-use management
In the United States, roadless areas make up 58.5 million acres, or about 30% National Forests lands in 38 states and Puerto Rico.
There are two types of canals: waterways and aquaducts.
Waterways - canals used for carrying vessels transporting goods and people.
Aquaducts - water supply canals that are used for transportation and delivery of water used for human consumption
Canals were important to commerce and developtment of a civilization
Nowadays, canals are mainly used for just bulk cargo and large ship transportation indurstries.
A channel is a landform consisting of an outline of a path of a shallow and narrow body of water.
Channels are naturally formed by flowing water or other fluids, like flowing lava.
Transportation activities support increasing mobility demands for passengers and freight
On the other hand, transport activites are associaed with growing levels of environmental externalities
Ozone affects sensitive plant species by interfering with the availability for the plants to make food and store food; the ozone also affects the appearance of the plants
Transportation infrastructure affects the structure of ecosystems, the dynamics of their functions, and directly affects its components, including their species.
In addtion to removing natural habitats, while building transportation infrastructure, there is also an increased risk of pollution due to the increased amount of work vehicles and machines.
The Environment is in Danger
Effect of the Air Pollution Occuring
STATE highways vary between each state
highway is a mixture of primary and secondary roads
each state has its own system for numbering
each state has its own marker
FEDERAL highways are run by the government
"Interstate Highway System" another name
Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956 signed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower
a system of highways across the US that link the states together
These are ways to help keep the Earth sustainable for future generations.
lessen the amount of roads being built
less oil/energy consumption
rely on other forms of transportation
