This comprehensive, trans-boundary #atlas contains over 100 maps of Arctic marine mammals, seabirds, sea ice, subsistence, and more. The Atlas is organized into six sections that build, layer by layer, the ecological foundation of the Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort seas.

How indigenous nomadic pastoralists in Iran are using GIS maps to defend and conserve their territories

These days, GIS digital maps are proving a really useful tool for Indigenous Peoples to delineate their own customary territories, which are often different from official maps. Many local communities are learning how to use the technology and working with experts in participatory mapping activities. Participatory GIS has turned into a sort of “counter mapping” enabling local communities to make their own maps and models, and using these for their own research, analysis, assertion of rights and resolution of conflicts over land. Such mapping exercises also motivate community members to keep on defending and conserving nature and their territories as they have done for thousands of years, in spite of the difficulties they encounter.

The Centre for Sustainable Development (CENESTA), a Civil Society Organization working in Iran and a founding member of IUCN, has been advocating for ICCAs for decades. This photo-essay captures CENESTA’s experience supporting Iranian Indigenous communities in mapping out their territories.

Tufts University—a summer school at which mathematicians, along with data analysts, legal scholars, schoolteachers, and political scientists, will learn to use their expertise to combat gerrymandering.
The school, which began on Monday, is the brainchild of a young Tufts professor named Moon Duchin, who specializes in geometry.

Fighting slavery from space

The University launched its ‘Slavery from Space’ project last month (May), which has been looking for volunteers to help researchers trawl through hundreds of satellite images to identify, and mark brick kilns. This work is focussing on India where the Global Slavery Index estimates there are over 18 million slaves.

Business wise, so far open source did not work great for us as a company

(…) how can I help? That’s rather obvious, isn’t it. Boils down to one word. Contribute.

Which, incidentally, is what I am going to keep doing.

D'ici à 2100, deux Européens sur trois seront affectés par des catastrophes climatiques

D’ici à 2100, deux Européens sur trois seront affectés par des catastrophes climatiques
http://www.lemonde.fr/planete/article/2017/08/05/d-ici-a-2100-deux-europeens-sur-trois-seront-affectes-par-des-evenements-cli

Dans cette étude, les chercheurs se sont basés sur une augmentation de température moyenne d’environ 3 °C d’ici à 2100, soit le scénario le plus probable selon une majorité de scientifiques. Dans ces conditions, le nombre de morts liées aux #catastrophes associées au dérèglement #climatique en Europe serait multiplié par 50, passant de 3 000 décès annuels entre 1981 et 2010 à 152 000 à la fin du siècle.

[...] Selon l’étude, les vagues de chaleur seront les événements climatiques les plus meurtriers. Elles causeraient ainsi 99 % du total des morts attendues. « L’exemple le plus marquant est celui de la canicule de 2003, rappelle Giovanni Forzieri. C’est un des plus grands désastres liés au climat, au niveau européen. »

En effet, cette vague de chaleur a fait plus de 70 000 morts en Europe dont 19 000 dans l’Hexagone. Depuis, chaque année, les records de température continuent de tomber. Comme lundi 31 juillet où, avec 30,5 °C relevés en Corse, le record de #chaleur nocturne en France a été battu.
