Food environment benchmarking of policies to prevent nutrition-related non-communicable diseases in KenyaGershim ASIKI, Milkah WANJOHI, Amy BARNES, Kristin BASH, Stefanie VANDEVIJERE, Elizabeth KIMANI & Michelle HOLDSWORTH
This study assessed government action, implementation gaps, and priorities to improve the healthiness of food environments (FE) in Kenya. Using the Healthy Food-Environment Policy Index (Food-EPI), a panel (n=16) of government and independent experts rated the extent of government action to improve the healthiness of FE in Kenya against international best practices and according to steps within a policy cycle. The Food-EPI tool used was based on that developed by the International Network for Food...
Replication data for : The little known Awu volcano is among the highest CO2 degassing source on earthBANI Philipson, Le Glas Etienne, , AIUPPA Alessandro &
Awu is one of the remote and little known active volcanoes of Indonesia. It is the northernmost active volcano of Sangihe arc with 18 eruptions in less than 4 centuries, causing a cumulative death toll of 11048. Two of these eruptions were classified as VEI 4. Since 2004, a lava dome occupies the center of Awu crater, channeling the fumarolic gas output along the crater wall. A combined DOAS and MultiGAS measurements highlight a relatively...

Microplastic concentrations in riverine and beach environments of Ba Ria Vung Tau province, Southern Vietnam, under COMPOSE (2019-2021) and CounterMEASUREII (2021-2022) projectsThi Ha Dang, Vu Binh Nguyen, Thi Thanh Dung Do & Emilie Strady
Microplastic (300-5000µm) concentrations were measured in the Dinh River, the Thi Vai River and in the shoreline of the Back and Mudberry beaches of Ba Ria Vung Tau province, Southern Vietnam, under the COMPOSE project (2019-2021) and the CounterMEASUREII project (2021-2022). Microplastic were sampled using a 80µm mesh size net from a local boat. The samples were extracted in the laboratory using enzymatic digestion, NaCl density separation and were filtrated on GF-A filter. Then microplastic...
Pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum (L) R. Br.) is a key cereal for food security in arid and semi-arid regions but its yield is increasingly threatened by water stress. Physiological mechanisms consisting in saving water or increasing water use efficiency can alleviate that stress. Aquaporins (AQP) are water channels contributing to plant hydraulic balance that are supposedly involved in these mechanisms by mediating root water transport. However, AQP remain largely uncharacterized in pearl millet. We developed...

The aim of this study was to identify social and physical factors that influence dietary behaviours in adolescents and adults living in urban Ghana and Kenya. In 2017-2018, a qualitative study was conducted amongst adolescents and adults aged ≥13 years living in socio-economically deprived urban neighbourhoods in Accra, Ghana (n=30) and Nairobi, Kenya (n=48). Participants used photography to identify characteristics in their social and physical environment that drive their dietary behaviours. Specifically, participants were asked...

To face the difficulties involved in supplying freshwater to Abidjan (Côte d’Ivoire), the Aghien Lagoon is a potential resource for production of drinking water. A hydro-meteorological network was installed with the objective of assessing the sustainability of the lagoon in terms of both quantity and quality. The automatic measurement of the water level is converted into a flow rate by means of a flow height rating curve established by gauging.

Perez-Quintero, Aurore Comte, Emilie Thomas, Adam Bogdanove, Ralf Koebnik, Boris Szurek, Anne Dievart, Christophe Brugidou, Severine Lacombe & Sebastien Cunnac
This dataset contains additional supporting information and source code related to the discovery of Xanthomonas-induced small RNAs (xisRNAs) as described in the Related Publication. Deep small RNA (sRNA) sequencing analysis discovered a class of sRNA in rice (Oryza sativa) specifically associated with foliar diseases caused by Xanthomonas oryzae pathovars. A set of 163 xisRNAs loci were distinctively upregulated in response to various bacterial strains at an early stage of infection. Most xisRNA loci overlap with...
As part of projects aimed at studying 1) the role of invasive black rat populations in the emergence of zoonotic diseases in Southeastern Senegal, and 2), the evolutionary consequences of parasites in R. rattus and M. musculus invasions in Senegal, we conducted a series of field campaigns throughout the southern part of the country, between May 2012 and September 2015. The objective was to catch commensal (= indoor) small mammals using standard trapping procedures, identify...
