Earth Science and Economy :

Key insights into aspects of sustainable development, Demonstrates the rich potential for collaborations among economists, natural scientists, integrated economic and climate models to address important climate change policy questions, Economic models to highlight the importance of governance and institutions for sustainable use of common property resources.

Advanced Biofuels :

Biodiesel : Biodiesel is produced from vegetable oils, fats or greases. It is blended with diesel, generally at low levels (up to 7%)

HVO : HVO, or Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil, differs from biodiesel in the way it is produced and in the quality of the final product. HVO is produced through the hydroprocessing of oils and fats. It can typically be blended with diesel without a blending limit. HVO is also commonly referred to renewable diesel.

Cellulosic ethanol: produced by hydrolysis and fermentation of lignocellulosic agricultural wastes such as straw or corn stover or from energy grasses or other energy crops. The end product is the same as conventional bioethanol, which is typically blended with gasoline.

BioSynthetic Natural Gas (BioSNG) : Initial gasification step followed by gas conditioning, SNG synthesis and gas upgrading. BioSNG can be used in a similar way to biomethane (biogas) generated via anaerobic digestion (a biological process). Syngas may also be converted to liquid fuels.

FT-liquids / Biomass to Liquid (BtL) : Produced via gasification (heating in partial presence of oxygen to produce carbon monoxide and hydrogen). Feedstocks include woody residues or wastes or energy crops. Gasification is followed by conditioning and then fuel synthesis via Fischer-Tropsch or the "methanol-to-gasoline" process.

Oceanography:

Biological Oceanography, Marine Pollution, Marine Engineering and Technology, Coastal Oceanography, Ocean Biogeochemistry and Physical Oceanography.

Disaster Risk Management- disaster mitigation, disaster preparedness, disaster prevention, policies and strategies, preparedness and contingency planning, prospective disaster risk management.

Green Economy:

• Topics on developing appropriate tools, strategic environmental assessments, environmental and climate evaluations, social impact assessments, environmental, social and green procurement standards

• Policy support for the development of green economy and low carbon development strategies and implementation at regional or national level.

• Integration of long-term institutional knowledge and skills with the aim of strengthening organizational commitment and capacities to drive green economy policy development

Renewable Energy Impact on Climate Change:

• Bioenergy, Direct solar energy, Geothermal energy, Hydropower, Wind energy. Sustainable energy policies, green processing, advanced materials for energy storage.

• Impacts of climate change on renewables make up a growing area of research, demand for energy and associated services.

• To meet social and economic development and improve human welfare and health.

• Climate change impacts on the size and geographic distribution of the technical potential for renewable energy sources.

Global Environmental Health:

• Climate Change and Human Health - The major public health organizations of the world have said that climate change is a critical public health problem.

• Global Environmental Health - Research, education, training, and research translation directed at health problems that are related to environmental exposures, emerging environmental issues such as changes in global climate and environments.

• Overview of the methodologies and tools used to assess environmental exposure, epidemiology and health impact of air pollution, noise, water contamination, metals, pesticides, persistent and non-persistent chemicals and radiation.

Impact of Climate Change on Public Health:

• Strategies to mitigate and adapt to global climate change, community development and the built environment.

• International policies that set greenhouse gas and temperature targets – Paris Agreement, National clean energy targets, Technology for carbon capture.

• Association between fossil fuels and Global Climate Change (GCC) and the consequent environmental changes and the predicted public health effects.

• Complex and interrelated climate changes and subsequent health effects, modulated by socioeconomic determinants.

• Trend towards urbanisation and the effects of local climates (urban heat islands), extent of public health outcomes.

Weather Related Morbidity & Mortality:

• Mitigation and adaptation strategies on reducing greenhouse gas emissions through changes in land use, transport, and energy production

• Developing strategies for linking health databases with real-time monitoring and prospective assessment of weather, climate, geospatial, and exposure data in order to better characterize the health impacts of extreme weather events.

• Discussion on zoning and planning to avoid building in at-risk areas, early warning systems.

• Developing and validating techniques for downscaling global climate models to provide regional and local input into health early warning systems.

• Evaluating and improving the effectiveness of health alert warning systems and other health risk communication tools.

• Improving the predictive power of modelling of health effects of extreme events such as droughts, wildfires, and floods.

Green Nanotechnology:

Herbal Approach for Developing Nanoparticles- The activity of herbal medicines depends on the overall function of active components that provide synergistic action and improve the therapeutic value.

Phytoformulation research- Developing nanotechnology-based dosage forms, e.g., solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs), polymeric nanoparticles (nanospheres and nanocapsules), proliposomes, liposomes, nanoemulsions, etc., has a great number of advantages for herbal drugs.

Green Synthesis of Metal Nanoparticles- Plants have been considered a more environmentally friendly biological method for synthesis of metallic nanoparticles and also useful for detoxification applications.
