About the GHS Chemicals, through the different steps from their production to their handling, transport and use, are a real danger for human health and the environment. People of any ages, from children to elderly, using many different languages and alphabets, belonging to various social conditions, including illiterates, are daily confronted to dangerous products (chemicals, pesticides, etc.) To face this danger, and given the reality of the extensive global trade in chemicals and the need to develop national programs to ensure their safe use, transport and disposal, it was recognized that an internationally-harmonized approach to classification and labelling would provide the foundation for such programs.
mcanet.mcga.gov When you are at sea, if you get into difficulty and for what ever reason you are unable to raise assistance, is there anyone ashore who knows what to do if you fail to return at your estimated time? Would a friend or relative know who to contact? Would they know sufficient detail about your vessel and your likely whereabouts to be able to assist the Coastguard to locate you? In a man overboard, fire or abandoning situation where the skipper needs to attend to the situation in hand but also needs to advise the Coastguard, as long as you are able to pass the name of your vessels, your position, nature of the problem, assistance required and number of persons on board, then the Coastguard can obtain the remainder of the information needed from the CG66 - Voluntary Safety Identification Scheme.
UNITAR - UNOSAT 10-12 May 2011, Bergen, Norway. During the 2011 GDACS Stakeholders Meeting, a crowd-sourcing application for geo-tagged photos was released to the disaster management and early responders community. Developed under the EC funded GEO-PICTURES project by AnsuR, in collaboration with UNOSAT, this Android app automatically geo-locates (tags) photos, size them according to bandwidth and send them off to a web-server - all with the touch of one button. In the web-server, photo location is indicated on a map, and the photo can be further assessed, shared with individuals or groups and even uploaded in high resolution if needed. So far, the tool has successfully been used in Haiti, Pakistan and Nigeria, as well as in several exercises.
Subregion A subregion is a part of a larger region or continent and is usually based on location. Cardinal directions, such as south or southern, are commonly used to define a subregion.

It is open 5 days a week and its team of volunteers works on a range of projects both for the Library’s benefit and for members of the public requesting information.
