Innovation for Sustainability: Prized Worldwide- The Neem Tree Finds a Niche Around the World

Innovation for Sustainability: Prized Worldwide- The Neem Tree Finds a Niche Around the World


The International Development National Research Council has called neem a “tree for solving global problems.” Indeed, this dynamic tree, which grows well throughout the world, offers a variety of uses as a medicine, food, and ingredient in lotions, soaps, and cosmetics. For improved food security, it can be integrated into agro-ecological systems as a natural pesticide, fertilizer, and windbreak.


Denmark

Denmark (Danish: Danmark, pronounced [ˈtænmɑk] ( listen ) ), officially the Kingdom of Denmark, [N 11] is a Nordic country in Northern Europe. Denmark proper, [N 2] which is the southernmost of the Scandinavian countries, consists of a peninsula, Jutland, and an archipelago of 443 named islands, [15] with the largest being Zealand, Funen and the North Jutlandic Island. The islands are characterised by flat, arable land and sandy coasts, low elevation and a temperate climate. Denmark lies southwest of Sweden and south of Norway, [N 12] and is bordered to the south by Germany. The Kingdom of Denmark is constitutionally a unitary state comprising Denmark proper and the two autonomous territories [16] in the North Atlantic Ocean: the Faroe Islands and Greenland. Denmark has a total area of 42,943 km 2 (16,580 sq mi) as of 2020 [update] , [7] and the total area including Greenland and the Faroe Islands is 2,210,579 km 2 (853,509 sq mi). Denmark proper has a population of 5.84 million (as of 2021 [update] ). [17]

The unified kingdom of Denmark emerged in the 8th century as a proficient seafaring nation in the struggle for control of the Baltic Sea. [6] Denmark, Sweden, and Norway were ruled together under one sovereign ruler in the Kalmar Union, established in 1397 and ending with Swedish secession in 1523. The areas of Denmark and Norway remained under the same monarch until 1814, Denmark–Norway. Beginning in the 17th century, there were several devastating wars with the Swedish Empire, ending with large cessions of territory to Sweden. After the Napoleonic Wars, Norway was ceded to Sweden, while Denmark kept the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Iceland. In the 19th century there was a surge of nationalist movements, which were defeated in the First Schleswig War. After the Second Schleswig War in 1864, Denmark lost the Duchy of Schleswig to Prussia. Denmark remained neutral during World War I however, in 1920 the northern half of Schleswig became Danish again. In April 1940, a German invasion saw brief military skirmishes while the Danish resistance movement was active from 1943 until the German surrender in May 1945. An industrialised exporter of agricultural produce in the second half of the 19th century, Denmark introduced social and labour-market reforms in the early 20th century that created the basis for the present welfare state model with a highly developed mixed economy.

The Constitution of Denmark was signed on 5 June 1849, ending the absolute monarchy, which had begun in 1660. It establishes a constitutional monarchy organised as a parliamentary democracy. The government and national parliament are seated in Copenhagen, the nation's capital, largest city, and main commercial centre. Denmark exercises hegemonic influence in the Danish Realm, devolving powers to handle internal affairs. Home rule was established in the Faroe Islands in 1948 in Greenland home rule was established in 1979 and further autonomy in 2009. Denmark became a member of the European Economic Community (now the EU) in 1973, but negotiated certain opt-outs it retains its own currency, the krone.

A developed country, Danes enjoy a high standard of living and the country ranks highly in some metrics of national performance, including education, health care, protection of civil liberties, democratic governance and LGBT equality. [18] [19] [20] [21] It is among the founding members of NATO, the Nordic Council, the OECD, OSCE, and the United Nations it is also part of the Schengen Area. Denmark also has close ties to its Scandinavian neighbours linguistically, with the Danish language being partially mutually intelligible with both Norwegian and Swedish.

Denmark

Denmark (Danish: Danmark, pronounced [ˈtænmɑk] ( listen ) ), officially the Kingdom of Denmark, [N 11] is a Nordic country in Northern Europe. Denmark proper, [N 2] which is the southernmost of the Scandinavian countries, consists of a peninsula, Jutland, and an archipelago of 443 named islands, [15] with the largest being Zealand, Funen and the North Jutlandic Island. The islands are characterised by flat, arable land and sandy coasts, low elevation and a temperate climate. Denmark lies southwest of Sweden and south of Norway, [N 12] and is bordered to the south by Germany. The Kingdom of Denmark is constitutionally a unitary state comprising Denmark proper and the two autonomous territories [16] in the North Atlantic Ocean: the Faroe Islands and Greenland. Denmark has a total area of 42,943 km 2 (16,580 sq mi) as of 2020 [update] , [7] and the total area including Greenland and the Faroe Islands is 2,210,579 km 2 (853,509 sq mi).

The unified kingdom of Denmark emerged in the 8th century as a proficient seafaring nation in the struggle for control of the Baltic Sea. [6] Denmark, Sweden, and Norway were ruled together under one sovereign ruler in the Kalmar Union, established in 1397 and ending with Swedish secession in 1523. The areas of Denmark and Norway remained under the same monarch until 1814, Denmark–Norway. Beginning in the 17th century, there were several devastating wars with the Swedish Empire, ending with large cessions of territory to Sweden. After the Napoleonic Wars, Norway was ceded to Sweden, while Denmark kept the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Iceland. In the 19th century there was a surge of nationalist movements, which were defeated in the First Schleswig War. After the Second Schleswig War in 1864, Denmark lost the Duchy of Schleswig to Prussia. Denmark remained neutral during World War I however, in 1920 the northern half of Schleswig became Danish again. In April 1940, a German invasion saw brief military skirmishes while the Danish resistance movement was active from 1943 until the German surrender in May 1945.
