Draft Zambian Standard - Plastics - Film sheeting
Zambia Bureau of Standards

This draft Zambian standard has been prepared by the Plastic Carrier Bags and Flat Bags Technical Working Group constituted by the Environmental Council of Zambia, in collaboration with the Zambia Bureau of Standards. This draft Zambian standard describes a method for the determination of average thickness of a sample and average thickness and yield of a roll of a plastic film and sheeting by gravimetric techniques. It was adopted due to its relevance to the Carrier bags and Flat bags standard (DZS 719). It is technically equivalent to ISO 4591 PLASTICS FILM SHEETING Determination of average thickness of a sample and average thickness and yield of a roll by gravimetric techniques (gravimetric thickness), published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

In dead water
United Nations Environment Programme

The new rapid response report entitled In Dead Water has for the first time mapped the multiple and combined impacts of pollution||alien infestations||over-exploitation and climate change on the seas and oceans. The worst concentration of cumulative impacts of climate change with existing pressures of over-harvest, bottom trawling, invasive species, coastal development and pollution appear to be concentrated in 10-15 per cent of the oceans concurrent with today's most important fishing grounds says the report. The World's oceans play a crucial role for life on the planet. Healthy seas and the services they provide are key to the future development of mankind. Our seas are highly dynamic, structured and complex systems. The seafloor consists of vast shelves and plains with huge mountains, canyons and trenches which dwarf similar structures on land. Ocean currents transport water masses many times larger than all rivers on Earth combined.
