Tickets for the Copa del Rey final: prices, how to buy, distribution …

first_imgBoth Athletic and Real Sociedad will have around 22,000 tickets available each Meanwhile, about 11,000 will be left by the Federation. In the aforementioned meeting the official price of the banknotes (Last year at Benito Villamarín they ranged between 55 euros the cheapest and 180, the most expensive) and it will be raffled which team occupies each area of ​​the stadium.Where is the final stadium?The stadium of La Cartuja It is located in the so-called Cartuja Island. One of the main venues of the 1992 Universal Expo. It opened in May 1999 and is the second largest stadium in Andalusia and the fifth in Spain. La Cartuja was built to host the 1999 World Athletics Championships (it has an athletic tartan) and was the cornerstone of the Olympic nominations in Seville in 2004 and 2008. It is located on the outskirts of the Andalusian city, close to the municipal terms of Santiponce Y Beds. Specifically, it is six kilometers away from the central and well-known Plaza de España. Another option is to move to the capital of Spain and decide to travel to Andalusian lands by AVE. Even for the bravest, there is the option of the car or coach with movements that revolve around the 9 hours of travel either from Bilbao or from La Concha beach itself.Accommodation and hotel bedsIt is important to have a large and varied hotel offer in order to receive both fans. According to the national statistical study (INE), lThe city of Seville has about 25,000 places in different establishments and categories.As usual prices have already skyrocketed. And at the moment a hotel night on the day of the final can vary from 200 euros per person in a shared room. Up to 1,000 euros for a double suite in a five-star downtown hotel.Date, time and TV of the finalThe match will be played on Saturday, April 18. Athletic Bilbao will have a hard commitment the previous weekend (day 31) with the visit to Camp Nou to measure yourself to Barcelona. While the Real Sociedad receives in Anoeta al Celta.There is no confirmed schedule but presumably the match is disputed at 9:00 p.m. and be televised by Four, like the previous semifinal matches. On March 12th both Real society how Athletic are summoned at the headquarters of the RFEF in Las Rozas (Madrid) to finish giving the last strokes to the organization of the final of the Copa del Rey. This final will be played Saturday, April 18 in the stadium of La Cartuja (Seville). The Federation itself has granted the Sevilla stadium the headquarters of the Copa final during this and the next three seasons (until 2023).How many tickets will each team have in the final?In this meeting, the distribution of tickets that each set will have in the final will be dictated, as well as the security measures for each hobby and the ‘fan zone’ that each Basque hobby will occupy. The stadium of La Cartuja can host about 57,000 spectators but for security reasons you will see your capacity reduced to about 55,000 people of regular capacity. In the absence of officiality, generally 40% of the total allowed will be allocated to the fans of each classified team. While, the remaining 20% ​​will be kept by the Federation to distribute it among your sponsors or, if you consider it appropriate, you will reserve a small percentage for direct sale at the box office for the general public of the city of Seville.center_img The stadium is very well connected And it can be reached by public transport. In front of the field, the C1 and C2 bus lines stop to which you have to add the C-2 Cercanías train line.Displacements of hobbies in SevilleAthletic Bilbao fans will have a priori more facilities to attend the Cup final the same day of the gameor. Although the stadium of La Cartuja is at 835 kilometers from the city of Bilbao, while, from San Sebastián there is a little more distance: 900 kilometers. Athletic fans also They have direct flights to Seville from the city of Guggenheim. An airline operates flights that in barely an hour and a half land in Seville for about 350 euros round trip. Meanwhile, txuri-urdin fans are not so lucky, since that there are no direct connections from San Sebastián and stops must be made in Madrid or even Barcelona.last_img read more

Government action needed on climate resiliency and food security in West Africa

first_imgIncreased extreme weather due to climate change and rising population could imperil West Africa’s food sources.Short-term planning and actions by non-state actors would do the least to combat hunger and climate impacts in the region.Burkina Faso and Ghana are already employing the study’s findings in their policies. While some leaders in Washington are barely getting their toes wet to address global climate change, researchers at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) have dived in head-first. A new study published in Global Environmental Change modeled potential future scenarios for climate change and food security in West Africa to determine how policymakers in the region can move toward a more sustainable and productive future.Ramatou Diouf is part of a women’s farming group that grows high-value crops for additional income.

Meadu (CCAFS)“Policymakers in the region have already used our scenarios to test their proposed climate adaptation strategies,” said Amanda Palazzo, a researcher with the IIASA. “When policy makers can visualize how their policies would work in the future, they can identify changes or actions to take that will yield more desirable results in all possible futures.”West Africans are extremely vulnerable to climate change because a large portion of their income is derived from rain-fed agriculture, according to the research. Three-quarters of the population also lives on less than two dollars per day.Potential future challenges include political instability and a rapidly growing population. Palazzo noted that the population could double or triple by 2050. Based on estimates from the United Nations, the population of West Africa could climb from its current number at approximately 371 million to almost 800 million in 2050. In order to slow the current rates of growth, fertility rates must decline – the current average is 5.47 children per woman. Empowering women through education and equal economic opportunities can lower fertility rates, thus slowing population growth, according to a large body of research.Increasing urbanization also adds pressure for more infrastructure to supply water and energy. Incomes may increase, potentially improving food security, but that may also lead to an increase in food imports if demand outstrips local production.Climate change has already begun to exacerbate food insecurities in West Africa, according to the authors of the study. The West African Monsoon (WAM) is critical to agricultural productivity, though records show that there have been large declines in precipitation during the monsoon season. During the 1970s through the 1990s, calamitous droughts were considered significant on a global scale, said Palazzo.According to the paper, projections show that rising levels of atmospheric carbon will lead to future declines in agricultural yields in West Africa.Mariama Keita (center) of Sikilo Village is a farmer who has actively been using climate forecasts to stay productive and thrive under climate change. Photos taken 29-30 September in Kaffrine and Niakhar, Senegal. Photo credit: V. Meadu (CCAFS).The IIASA study sought to be proactive on this issue, rather than reactive. Led by the CGIAR Program on Climate Change, Agriculture, and Food Security (CCAFS), regional scenarios were created to show potential futures for West Africa up to 2050. These scenarios were linked with Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSPs), which are global scenarios developed to predict the future of our changing climate. In this way, global projections could be compared to the CCAFS’s regional scenarios and adapted for West Africa specifically.“For any intervention or change of practice to be successful in improving livelihoods or helping farmers to adapt to climate change, the local challenges have to be well understood,” Palazzo explained. “Applying a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach in adapting to climate change may not succeed because the challenges facing agricultural systems depend on the local conditions.”Two important variables for the CCAFS scenarios were whether long-term or short-term goals were prioritized for policy-making and whether state or non-state actors were more prevalent in the process of development. The results of the study show that taking measures to adapt to climate change and to invest in agriculture now will lessen the impacts of climate change in the future.When state-actors dominated and focused on long-term goals, food security improved the most and food prices fell. The opposite scenario, which is categorized by non-state actors and short-term needs, had the highest potential for increased food insecurity. Under this scenario, scientists also expected food prices to rise.A woman in Daga Biram picks groundnuts (peanuts), an important staple crop in Senegal. Photo credit: V. Meadu (CCAFS).Deforestation rates also varied between scenarios. Approximately 6.2 million hectares of land were saved from being converted to cropland under the state-actor, long-term scenario, compared to only 2.6 million hectares preserved when short-term goals were prioritized by non-state actors.The work done by the IIASA is already being applied by leaders in Burkina Faso, where in 2015 the scenarios were used to revise their National Plan for the Rural Sector (PNSR), leading to multiple policy recommendations. In 2016, leaders in Ghana also used the results of the study to inform policy at a local and national level, including a review of their National Livestock Policy. These examples show that research is already creating tangible change, pushing West Africa toward improved climate resiliency and food security.According to the study, the benefits of strong government action now will ultimately outweigh the costs in West Africa. If we want to prepare for the future challenges of climate change, we simply cannot wait. Government investment in agriculture, providing farmers with knowledge and resources such as climate-adapted seeds, and improving coordination between countries and NGOs will better prepare West Africa for the future challenges of a changing climate.Citations:Palazzo A, Vervoort JM, Mason-D’Croz D, Rutting L, Havlik P, Islam S, Bayala J, Valin H, et al.

Good effort trying to be objective in this article. I would like to give a constructive feedback which could help in clearing things up.1. It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsoredlast_img read more
