It will be used as a base for the assessment of vulnerable coastline environments for further migration to offshore fish farming.
It will be used as a base for the assessment of vulnerable coastline environments for further migration to offshore fish farming. It will map the current susceptibility of mangrove and other wetland areas to mangrove ponds and the risks of them being converted to them by 2050.
The scholarship is a continuation of an early Moore Foundation scholarship that mapping maricultural activities in Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam. The scholarship extends the current trial to Myanmar. Dates from this former survey are available for free and include landmaps derived from Landsat 8 dates between 2013 and 2015.
Included in the figures are the susceptibility map of the coast zone to the switch to fish farming and the 2050 hazard map of this switch. You can view the results of the preceding survey via an online map database. Results of this latest survey will be published on the map web site as soon as they become available.
Gordon and Betty Moore Stiftung is committed to brave thinking that has a lasting effect on the sciences, the environment and people. Gordon, co-founder of Intel, and his wife Betty set up the San Francisco Bay Area Trust to bring about changes worldwide and at home.
Research is looking for ways to transfigure - or even build - whole areas by investment in early-stage research, up-and-coming areas and top researchers.
MAP diagnostics in Myanmar
While Myanmar is modernizing its finance industry to better serve its economies and communities, a burgeoning chance has opened up to expand the provision of finance to most of its population. MAGP found that 30% of the 39 million grown-ups use controlled but only 6% more than one of them.
Less than 5% of grown-ups have banks. Most people depend on irregular suppliers or relatives and acquaintances to cover their needs for social work. Costs for non-restricted service suppliers are generally much higher than those of non-restricted service suppliers. MAGP also found that the situation in the countryside is slightly better than in the city.
It is the outcome of selective lending to the countryside by public finance institutes in conjunction with an emerging business banker. Since 2011, MFIs have made some progress and currently have 700,000 customers. Under MAGPs, a major budgetary survey of consumer demands for finance is underway.
On the basis of this survey and quantitative research, MAP could divide the mature populations into five different audiences, each with different pattern of monetary use and needs. Farmers is the biggest market group (12 million). It is the biggest beneficiary of regular credits thanks to the disbursement of country credits by the Myanmar Agricultural Development Bank and microfinance institutions.
The highest level of medium incomes of all groups was found in official companies (2.5 million adults). But they have the least use of regular loans, which offers a great chance to enhance job opportunities and grow if regular loans can be expanded to this group. Grown-ups who draw their incomes from nonformal businesses (4.7 million) use more loans, both regular and nonregulated, than their countrymen with them.
