Climate-smart agriculture (CSA) is an approach for transforming and reorienting agricultural systems to support food security under the new realities of climate change. Widespread changes in rainfall and temperature patterns threaten agricultural production and increase the vulnerability of people dependent on agriculture for their livelihoods, which includes most of the world's poor. Climate change disrupts food markets, posing population-wide risks to food supply. Threats can be reduced by increasing the adaptive capacity of farmers as well as increasing resilience and resource use efficiency in agricultural production systems. CSA promotes coordinated actions by farmers, researchers, private sector, civil society and policymakers towards climate-resilient pathways through four main action areas: (1) building evidence; (2) increasing local institutional effectiveness; (3) fostering coherence between climate and agricultural policies; and (4) linking climate and agricultural financing. CSA differs from 'business-as-usual' approaches by emphasizing the capacity to implement flexible, context-specific solutions, supported by innovative policy and financing actions. © 2014 Macmillan Publishers Limited.

The European pharmaceutical regulatory system has not yet been challenged by issues related to highly personalized medicines such as those to be found with active substances that affect RNA biochemistry. We review the current status of RNA-based pharmacology and present three possible case histories. The implications for the European pharmaceutical regulatory system are discussed. © 2013 The British Pharmacological Society.

An air purification apparatus and air purification method is disclosed. Air to be purified is drawn into an air purification unit for purification by a negative pressure, wherein the negative pressure region is created by a fan blower, and the air to be purified does not pass through the fan blower to prevent the fan blower being contaminated by the pollutants which presented in the air to be purified. With the present invention, the lifespan of the fan blower can be extended, and the fire alarm risk caused by accumulated pollutants can be decreased. The fan blowers with lower power consumption can be used to achieve the beneficial effects of energy saving and noise reduction.
