We didn’t start it and we won’t see the end of it, but we are the first ones feeling the effects and the ones with the responsibility to act on it now for others not to get the scariest consequences. High concentration of greenhouse gases and a way of living that relays on them are the heritage we were given, because of it, new generations face the threat of rising oceans, less fresh water to drink, threats to food security, and others.

E-mail Print PDF

A research report, released by the United Nations University Institute for Natural Resources in Africa (UNU-INRA), is urging relevant stakeholders in the natural resources management sector in Africa to consider limiting the activities of sand dredgers to non-fishing communities. This, the report indicated, can be achieved, by ensuring that licenses are given to sand dredgers to operate only in communities that are not engaged in fishing. This aims to help reduce the negative effects of sand dredging on fishing.

About five years ago, the physicist Klaus Tschira (1940 – 2015) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation founded the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS). Today, around 120 scientists from 22 countries work at the non-profit research institute. Organized in 13 groups, they explore scientific subjects by means of advanced mathematical and computational methods and powerful supercomputers. Looking back on the past year, the newly published annual report illustrates the spectrum of HITS research and the development of the institution after the decease of Klaus Tschira at the end of March 2015. "We are continuing to pursue our goal of high-level interdisciplinary work on data-driven research in the pioneering spirit of our founder,” says HITS Scientific Director Prof. Rebecca Wade, who heads the HITS together with Managing Director Dr. Gesa Schönberger.
