The preservation and rehabilitation of tropical marine ecosystems hold significant importance for society due to the adverse consequences associated with their degradation, which include the impairment of crucial services such as coastal protection and the provision of seafood resources. Nonetheless, a significant knowledge deficit persists about the comprehensive capabilities of blue carbon ecosystems in terms of mitigating climate change and delivering socio-economic advantages. Hence, the primary objective of this study is to critically examine the economic significance of ecosystem services rendered by blue carbon habitats, along with the associated obstacles, governance mechanisms, and conservation approaches employed to address climate change mitigation through these ecosystems. The integration of blue carbon ecosystems conservation, protection, and restoration should be prioritized within mitigation and carbon stock conservation plans across local, national, and global scales. This article reviews various forms of governance, such as market-based instruments, public investment, partnership initiatives, and community-based management, that have the potential for future implementation. In a broader context, safeguarding tropical marine habitats is an ecological necessity that warrants recognition as a potential avenue for generating more cash and alleviating national debts across various countries. This review paper presents a comprehensive overview of the existing knowledge regarding severely degraded tropical blue carbon ecosystems, with the aim of offering a structured framework that can be utilized by stakeholders to facilitate their efforts in restoring these ecosystems.</p> Asif Raihan Copyright (c) 2023 Sun, 01 Oct 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Enhancing Municipal Solid Waste Management in Rapidly Urbanizing Areas: A Case Study of Rudrapur City, India <p>Urban solid waste management is a crucial challenge, involving treatment, recycling, and energy conversion for environmental and public health protection. This research explores the management of municipal solid waste in the city of Rudrapur, located in the Himalayan foothills, in the midst of rapid urbanization and industrial development. Rudrapur is confronted with an increasing waste production as a consequence of its expanding population. The study examines waste distribution, evaluates current practices, and proposes effective waste management solutions for local governance. Using secondary data, interviews, and fieldwork, the study assesses waste generation, collection, transportation, processing, and disposal. The waste, comprising biodegradables, recyclables, and non-recyclables, presents challenges like inadequate equipment, unregulated dumping, and inefficiencies. Composite scores reveal disparities in waste management among city wards, uncovering infrastructure and practice gaps. Recommendations include source segregation, expanded composting, improved waste processing, and public awareness. Modern techniques like Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and remote sensing can enhance waste management strategies. The study underscores the urgency of addressing improper waste disposal's environmental and health impacts. By tackling deficiencies and embracing innovation, Rudrapur can transition to a sustainable solid waste management system, fostering a cleaner and healthier urban environment.</p> Sonu kaur, Prof. Anjali Punera Copyright (c) 2023 Sun, 01 Oct 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Mathematical Modeling of Dynamic Interactions in Green Energy Transition for Economic and Environmental Sustainability <p>In the pursuit of a harmonious coexistence between economic growth and environmental sustainability, this paper delves into the intricate realm of "Mathematical Modeling of Dynamic Interactions in Green Energy Transition for Economic and Environmental Sustainability." Building upon the foundational contributions of Polimeni, Mayumi, Giampietro, and Alcott (2008), we navigate a complex mathematical landscape where equations articulate the interplay of energy consumption (E), economic production (P), and carbon emissions (C). As the equations come to life, they illuminate pathways that offer theoretical insights into the intricate dynamics at play. These pathways, shaped by nuanced parameters, provide a theoretical foundation to decipher the complex interactions between renewable technologies, economic growth, and environmental balance. Guided by the perspectives of Edenhofer et al. (2014) and Grubler (1998), we transcend equations to explore the strategic realm where policies and strategies find their genesis. The theoretical insights unearthed through this exploration serve as guiding lights for policymakers and stakeholders. Armed with this theoretical compass, policymakers navigate the complexities of green energy transition, crafting interventions that resonate with the rhythm of sustainable progress. These insights enrich the spectrum of strategies aimed at fostering economic prosperity without compromising the delicate equilibrium of the environment. Within the symphony of design, theory metamorphoses into actionable strategies, intricately woven into the fabric of growth and sustainability. This paper underscores the pivotal role of theoretical frameworks in shaping effective policies and strategies, providing a roadmap for a future where equilibrium and progress dance in synchrony.</p> Abdulgaffar Muhammad, Edrin Jeroh, Yusuf Ibrahim Nuhu, Micah Ezekiel Elton Mike, Mohammed Bello Idris Copyright (c) 2023 Thu, 12 Oct 2023 00:00:00 +0000 To Study the Mutual Fund Investment Return Against the Rising Inflation in Malaysia <p>The primary objective in investment had been no doubt to overcome the inflation pressure within the economy over time to avoid losing out purchasing power as well as increasing the dollar value through investing and hence creating higher wealth for the individuals. The benchmark for the rising inflation rate in Malaysia had been concerning for the investors which triggered the motivation of the study to explore the study on mutual fund investment return in comparison against the inflation rate for the country. With this, the quantitative analysis had been introduced with the correlation analysis and regression analysis to test the significance of the relationship between the mutual fund investment return and the inflation rate in Malaysia. The results had shown existence of negative correlation between the two variables but remained not significant from inflation rate to influence the investment return of mutual fund. In addition, the comparative analysis conducted had been evidenced to show greater return on average for the past 11 years of study to surpass the inflation rate in Malaysia. With the higher return on investment for mutual as negative correlation against the inflation growth, it is recommended for the investors to invest in mutual fund especially in the time of recession in the country.</p> Wee Win Yeoh Copyright (c) 2023 Thu, 09 Nov 2023 00:00:00 +0000
