Here’s how climate change is impacting wine production

The study mentions that the cooler wine producing regions including Germany, New Zealand and the US Pacific Northwest would comparatively be unharmed in the 2 degree Celsius scenarios. The regions which are already hot like Italy, Spain, and Australia faced the largest losses, because they are already limited to planting the warmest varieties.

How Indonesian palm oil industry is transforming to upcycling circular economy

Palm oil trees are native to Africa but were brought to South-East Asia just over 100 years ago as an ornamental tree crop. Now, Indonesia and Malaysia make up over 85% of global supply.


DUBAI. UAE. The Principality of Monaco has been taking part in universal expositions since 1873 (Vienna World’s Fair). Monaco became a member of the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) in 1958, and has since taken part in the majority of universal and specialised expositions, regularly receiving awards for its pavilion.

The first universal exposition, the Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of all Nations, was held in London in 1851, marking the height of British power during the Victorian era. After a visit in 1849 to the final Great Exhibition of Products of French Industry, an event that had been held in Paris since 1798, the English archivist and writer Henry Cole came up with the idea of organising an international exposition that would bring together in one place the craft and industrial production of the entire world.

The theme for the Monaco Pavilion at EXPO 2020 DUBAI is “Monaco 360°, a world of opportunities”. Taking the shape of a polygon, its architecture evokes Monaco’s famous Rocher (Rock). It was designed by Olivier Deverini, founder of the architecture firm AODA, with assistance from OOS Studio and the facts and fiction agency, a renowned designer within the Expo world.

The aim of the Pavilion’s design is to showcase the different sides of the Principality, the things that make it unique, its professions, its plans and its advantages.

In the “Garden of Opportunities”, visitors will be able to discover the actions taken by the Principality of Monaco. In accordance with the country’s efforts to protect the environment at the behest of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II, the Monaco Pavilion has established a set of eco-friendly specifications:

  • Generation of clean electricity using photovoltaic panels which cover the Pavilion’s surface (these have been generating energy and feeding it into Dubai’s electricity grid since March 2021)
  • Grey water recycling plant
  • Compressed air service vehicle
  • Recycling of a significant proportion of the construction materials, etc. All of this data will be displayed at the entrance to the Pavilion in Dubai, as well as at the Mini Pavilion on Port Hercule in Monaco.
