Page 474 - Climate change' means a change of climate which is attributed directly or indirectly to human activity that alters the composition of the global atmosphere and which is in addition to natural climate variability observed over comparable time periods.
Page 521 - It is based on the spectral sensitivity of the photosensors in the human eye under high (daytime) light levels. Photometrically, it is the luminous flux emitted with a solid angle (1 steradian) by a point source having a uniform luminous intensity of 1 candela.
Page 522 - Natural gas liquids are those portions of reservoir gas which are liquefied at the surface in lease separators, field facilities, or gas processing plants.
Page 18 - Plan period. All children in school by 2003; all children to complete five years of schooling by 2007. Reduction in gender gaps in literacy and wage rates by at least 50% by 2007. Reduction in the decadal rate of population growth between 2001 and 2011 to 16.2%.
Page 516 - A statistically significant variation in either the mean state of the climate or in its variability, persisting for an extended period (typically decades or longer). Climate change may be due to natural internal processes or external forcings, or to persistent anthropogenic changes in the composition of the atmosphere or in land use.
Page 18 - Reduction of maternal mortality ratio (MMR) to 2 per 1,000 live births by 2007 and to 1 by 2012. • Increase in forest and tree cover to 25 per cent by 2007 and 33 per cent by 2012. • All villages to have sustained access to potable drinking water within the Plan period.
Page 523 - proved" reserves, which are "... the estimated quantities of crude oil which geological and engineering data demonstrate with reasonable certainty to be recoverable from known reservoirs under existing economic and operating conditions.
Page 521 - Liquefied Petroleum Gases (LPG). A group of hydrocarbon-based gases derived from crude oil refining or natural gas fractionation. They include: ethane, ethylene, propane, propylene, normal butane, butylène, isobutane, and isobutylene. For convenience of transportation, these gases are liquefied through pressurization. Liquefied Refinery Gases (LRG). Liquefied petroleum gases fractionated from refinery or still gases. Through compression and/or refrigeration, they are retained in the liquid...
Page 470 - Because the trade in wild animals and plants crosses borders between countries, the effort to regulate it requires international cooperation to safeguard certain species from over-exploitation. CITES was conceived in the spirit of such cooperation. Today, it accords varying degrees of protection to more than 30,000 species of animals and plants, whether they are traded as live specimens, fur coats or dried herbs.
