  Insular area - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An insular area is United States territory that is neither a part of one of the fifty states nor a part of the District of Columbia, the nation's federal district.
Insular area is the current generic term used by the U.S. State Department to refer to any commonwealth, freely associated state, possession or territory.
Residents of insular areas are often U.S. citizens, although they do not pay American federal taxes and cannot participate in U.S. presidential elections nor elect voting members of the U.S. Congress.

 List of dependent territories - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dependent areas are territories that for some reason do not possess full political independence or sovereignty as states.
The areas separately referred to as non-independent are territories that are disputed, are occupied, have a government in exile or have a non-negligible independence movement.
French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique and Réunion are departments (first-order administrative units) of France, and are therefore not dependencies or areas of special sovereignty, similar to how the island state of Hawaii is a first-order political unit of the United States.

 Executive Summary
Nonetheless, beneficiaries in southern and southeastern pastoral areas (Somali Region, Bale and Borena) is reduced from a high of 2.0 million in 2000 to 1.6 million in 2001 and approximately 1 million in 2002.
Beneficiary numbers in crop-dependent areas have decreased however not to the extent expected given good harvests; from a peak of 8.2 million in 2000, 4.6 million in 2001 and approximately 4 million in 2002.
In areas experiencing similar rainfall patterns and resulting decreases in crop production, livestock prices are also in decline as farmers sell animals anticipating reductions in available pasture and water and hence livestock conditions.

 Political divisions of the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Basically, counties exist to provide general local support of state government activities, such as collection of property tax revenues (counties almost never have their own power to tax), but without providing most of the services one associates with muncipalities, because counties are usually too big for that purpose.
Federal law overrides state law in the areas in which the federal government is empowered to act, but the powers of the federal government are subject to limits in the Constitution of the United States.
Unlike states, the authority to rule dependent areas comes not from the people of those areas but from the Federal government, however in most cases Congress has granted a large amount of self-rule.

 05.07 Groundwater Dependent Ecosystems (Edition 2004)
The recording of groundwater dependent land ecosystems is based on existing data of the Berlin Environmental Atlas (Map 05.02 Vegetation, Edition 2000 and Map 05.03 Valuable Areas for Flora and Fauna, Edition 1995).
The effect of the groundwater on the vegetation depends on the root penetration depth of particular plants, and, depending on the type of soil, on the capillary rise capacity of the groundwater.
For other biotope and vegetation types, such as fallow areas, or gravel and sand quarries, which may be groundwater-dependent depending on their specificity, an individual area assessment was carried out with the technical consultation of the state authority for conservation and landscape care.

Ongoing World Food Programme (WFP) food aid distributions are partially addressing household food deficits in these areas, but the food security situation is still considered precarious in these areas.
In addition to poor pasture and water conditions, over the last four months, the cost of essential food and non-food items has increased singificnatly and is having a negative impact on the food security of both rural and urban poor households.
Due to poor pasture conditions, a massive early migration to the coastal garzing areas, which are expecting the Heys rains (October - February), is likely to occur immediately after the onset of the rains.
