A PESTEL analysis examines a target market’s political, economic, social, technological, environmental, and legal dimensions in terms of both its current state and possible trends. An understanding of the dimensions of PESTEL helps you better grasp the dimensions on which a target market or industry may be more global or local.

Land is the integrating component of all livelihoods depending on farm, forest, rangeland, or water (rivers, lakes, coastal marine) habitats. Due to varying political, social, and economic factors, the heavy use of natural resources to supply a rapidly Cited by: Dryland farming and dry farming encompass specific agricultural techniques for the non-irrigated cultivation of d farming is associated with drylands, areas characterized by a cool wet season (which charges the soil, with virtually all the moisture that the crops will receive prior to harvest) followed by a warm dry season.

They are also associated with arid conditions, areas prone. Several technological advances are helping to improve and transform drylands research and management. Inexpensive, open-source, and/or repurposed hardware and software Given increasing budget constraints, the need for diversified data streams with high sampling frequencies in dry-lands requires creative thinking and innovative approaches.

Modern technological energy solutions and the deployment of renewable energies coupled with sustainable land-use management practices, such as agroforestry, can significantly mitigate land degradation and decrease vulnerability of energy systems while supporting universal access to clean, affordable, and secure energy.

Introduction • We live in a Natural as well as social world • Development cannot be of only the rich nor it means only high living standards.

• Also not just ECONOMIC development • It has to be a holistic approach. • Social aspects, development and environment have a strong relation. Boundaries Redefined Technological changes have significant consequences for industries: • Technological change is a potent force in the reconfiguring of industry boundaries, it may broaden or narrow generally excepted industry boundaries • As a consequence of its impact on whole industries, technological change can have a significant.

We have deep reserves of powerful technologies—for food production, water management in dry lands, disease control, and infrastructure—that can be deployed rapidly and at modest cost to break.
