Comprehensive coverage of understanding, prevention, and risk management of extreme drought events, with examples of approaches followed in water-stressed regions This book describes the progress made in our understanding of severe drought and explains how we can deal with—and even avoid—complete devastation brought on by such punishing events. It brings forward advanced knowledge on drought hazard analysis and management, particularly from EU-funded research projects, to assist in the development of the corresponding drought management plans. In addition, this book addresses issues of social vulnerability to drought and science-policy interfaces, which are important elements of drought management. Divided into three sections, this book covers the diagnosis of physical processes, historic drought and the trends in historic drought, and perspectives of future drought. It takes an academic approach to risk evaluation, including characterization of drought episodes, development of indicators of risk in hydrological and agricultural systems, and analysis of the role of socio-economic instruments for risk mitigation. It also discusses the interactions that have resulted in the complex institutional framework, and highlights the importance of stakeholder involvement and awareness building for successful drought management. In addition, Drought: Science and Policy features a collection of case studies that include the description of effective measures taken in the past. Addresses the growing issue of drought preparedness planning, monitoring, and mitigation Teaches methodologies and lessons focused on specific, drought-prone regions so the applications have more significance Provides examples of approaches followed in water-stressed regions (river basin and national scale) with drought analyses at the pan-European scale Drought: Science and Policy will be an invaluable reference for researchers and practitioners in the field as well as Masters students taking relevant courses in drought management and natural disaster management.

Riccarda Dümke Corporate Reputation and its Importance for Business Success

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: Ignored for a long time, intangible assets are now gaining increased attention. In the last decade, especially in the United States, company managers recognized that intangible assets may provide companies with a more stable basis for competitive advantage than patents and technologies. Hence, companies started to invest in corporate Public Relations (PR) activities to communicate good corporate behaviour, gain good will and to improve the public perception of their corporate reputation. The main aim of this dissertation research project is to develop an understanding of the European perspective of corporate reputation and its management and importance for business success.

Linus Elangwe Water . Sanitation Knowledge Management in Rural Cameroon

Master's Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Development Politics, University of Sussex (Institute of Development Studies), language: English, abstract: The purpose of this study is to move beyond conventional thinking on rural water (and sanitation) infrastructure and resource management. The study acknowledges the existence of other water management and sanitation tools but it engages its argument from a knowledge management perspective. In most rural areas, water and sanitation projects have been implemented and community members only enjoy these facilities for a short time. Why? The reason is simple. Most donors and governments are often concerned with the specificity of their projects/programmes, long-term sustainability is rarely guaranteed and those who are left to manage these water systems lack the necessary capacities (skills & knowledge). Consequently, after few years of implementation most water supply are been closed down while sanitation structures are fast deteriorating due to poor management and lack of post-project government/donor support. This study on water and sanitation knowledge management (WKM) highlights some of these pitfalls in rural Cameroon; it acknowledges the fact that knowledge is always incomplete and that rural water supply systems are in themselves a complex and dynamic system involving risks and uncertainties. The study takes a look at the recent literatures on water resource managemen...

Maisum Raza Impact of Hofstede.s Cultural Dimensions on the Human Development Index of European Countries

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2018 in the subject Cultural Studies - Basics and Definitions, grade: 75%, Anglia Ruskin University, course: Bachelors (Hons) in International Management, language: English, abstract: Hofstede's cultural dimensions is a cultural dimension tool which was used as the independent variable and its impact was tested on the Human Development Index, a socio-economic cultural development index; only in Europe. Through research concluded that both these models were the best fit due to availability of data as well as time constraints. The literature gap revealed that no other research did this research fully with all cultural dimensions, HDI, and only in Europe. A longitudinal secondary quantitative study was done considering the latest 5 years of HDI scores from UNDP and a regression, descriptive analysis, and normality test was done to determine the impact. Data was collected through reputable primary sources online. The test revealed that only 3 of the cultural dimensions proved to have an impact on HDI. Power distance had a negative significant impact. Individualism and Indulgence had a significant positive impact. Three of the six null hypotheses were deemed true. This study can provide useful insights for businesses and academics that are looking towards the continent of Europe to further expand their cultural knowledge for various purposes.

Evans P. Aryabaha The Role of the Beijing Olympics in China.s Public Diplomacy

The 2008 Beijing Olympics were ardently sought, lavishly staged and hugely successful. China successfully used the Olympics as a tool of public diplomacy with a positive impact on its politics, economics and environment. But how did Beijing beat the odds to stage the most spectacular Olympic event in history; and with what impact? China's Public Diplomacy is reinforced and undercut by authoritarianism... Yet, global status demands more transparency and greater accountability. As PD becomes increasingly indispensable in the management of external affairs, China's Olympic experience offers wider lessons. This book examines a topical issue of growing currency and wide relevancy to PD; puts the Olympics in a national and international context; highlights the paradox of China's Public Diplomacy; underscores China's successful national brand image as an emerging global power; offers valuable insights into deeper understanding of the rising China and its importance as a workshop of the world. The book is, therefore, a pleasant, interesting and invaluable reading for students and practitioners of diplomacy as well as those interested in modern China and contemporary international relations.

Carsten Richter How the number of foreign players influences the performance of national clubs and the national team

Master's Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Sport - Sport Economics, Sport Management, grade: 1.3, Birkbeck, University of London (Management), course: MSc Sport Management and Marketing, language: English, abstract: This paper is about whether the number of foreign players might have an influence on the performance of clubs and national teams. Before analysing the mentioned correlation, this research explains in detail all the different potential factors which might also influence performance.This paper highlights different regulations that have a considerable influence on clubs, such as the UEFA home-grown player regulation and different domestic rules. Other sources of impact are the different youth academy systems. The German youth development system has been an important factor in the success of the German national team since its establishment in 2004, which might be due to the increasing number of competitions in which young German players are determined to get a place. The English Premier League is starting to follow in the footsteps of Germany by implementing different regulations to support English players. Italy, however, is showing dramatic differences with regard to its countrywide youth systems because it seems to merely focus on the academies of the different clubs. Similar systems can be found in Spain, which has, nonetheless, two very successful academies 'La Masia' and 'La Fábrica'.Other related factors to consider are language and f...

Amy Chin, Bakhtier Pulatov Project Planning and Organizational Project Planning Support

Increasing globalization has brought academics and practitioners to study national cultures in management. Likewise,the trend towards running business through projects has brought broader perspectives such as national cultures into project management. Recent academic literature demonstrated that national culture has a major impact on management practices. However,the element of national culture is elusively described in the project management field. No extensive tests were found on the comparison of the project planning among countries,which could help to establish relationship between national cultures and project planning capabilities. Therefore, using GLOBE study to capture national cultures and Project Management Planning Quality(PMPQ) model to capture project planning approach and organizational planning support,this book compares national culture, project planning and organizational project planning support across four different countries: Malaysia,Japan,Sweden and Israel. It answers questions about the relevance of national culture to project planning and concludes with implications to project managers.

Marco Hölzel Crisis Management, CSR, and Crisis Communication in the Volkswagen Emissions Scandal

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,3, University of Cumbria, language: English, abstract: The purpose of this research is to examine the crisis management and crisis communication of the German car company Volkswagen (VW) in its recent emissions scandal. This study aims to analyse the applied crisis management and communication strategies of Volkswagen by evaluating the crisis´ impact on each stakeholder group. To accomplish this, the research adopts a single case study design, and it considers a significant amount of qualitative, secondary data.The research first notes that Volkswagen failed in its crisis management prevention tactics, as it was unable to detect the crisis at an early stage. Moreover, the study reveals that VW implemented several immediate crisis management measures for a quick turnaround management. Instead of concentrating on a specific crisis response theory, it is evident that VW made use of different crisis response strategies. VW took full responsibility for the crisis, promising transparency, but it also shifted the blame onto a small group of employees, suggesting that the company was also the victim of human error. Finally, the study reveals the significant impact of the crisis on each stakeholder group, which reveals that VW struggled to regain stakeholder trust and did not keep its promise of transparency. Thus, the study concludes by presenting future recommen...

Jan Hutterer The legal framework and its implementation in the Chinese water market

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2008 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Environmental Policy, grade: keine, , 24 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Worldwide the hidden costs of Chinas rapid transformation have caused deep concerns. In recent years the cases of water shortages, pollution and flood/drought damages steadily increased in numbers. This development is caused by both a large population and a rapidly developing economy. Although China significantly improved its water and wastewater infrastructure, its water shortage problem is worsening year by year. The Chinese government tries to counter this misbalance and insistently pursues an environmentally sustainable development policy. Its countermeasures include management model reforms, Private-Sector-Participation (PSP) projects and the support of new technology development and application. According to the 11th Five-Year-Plan, more than 140 billion Euros will be spent on environmental projects and campaigns before 2010. These reforms have unleashed a wave of optimism in China‟s water market and created great market opportunities for investors. Significant amounts of new water infrastructures are to be built, and the operation and maintenance of all existing and newly built municipal water and wastewater treatment plants have been or will be transferred to authorized enterprises. However, these opportunities are not without risk. Investors are particularly skeptical abo...

Iliyana Stareva Social Media and the Rebirth of PR. The Emergence of Social Media as a Change Driver for PR

Our world has faced some remarkable changes over the past few decades due to the rapid development of new technology and the Internet. However, a few years back, a new era began, an era where ordinary people have a 'say' on every possible matter, anytime, anywhere - the emergence of social media has altered our lives enormously by giving everyone the opportunity to be a publisher and a communicator. This, in turn, has had a huge impact on the Public Relations practice, which has always been concerned with communicating and building relationships with various publics on behalf of organisations. This book describes how exactly social media altered the PR industry and the way practitioners are doing PR using social media in their professional and private lives. It is therefore especially useful to both students and professionals in the fields of PR, Social Media, Communications and Marketing, or anyone else who is interested in learning more about social media's impact on PR.

Master's Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,8, University of applied sciences Frankfurt a. M., language: English, abstract: Initial situationThe initial point of this research paper is the fact that continuous globalisation of world economy is leading to an increase of competitive pressure. To persist in this competitive environment permanent innovation and increase of quality of products and services are necessary as well as an ongoing improvement of processes. Quality here is the key to success of companies and to insure wealth of a society. In this context it gets more and more evident that existing structures within enterprises often are not sufficient anymore to meet the demands of an increase of speed of change and complexness of the enterprises environment. Organisations are fragmented and structured hierarchical and for that reason too stolid. In that situation projects hardly are completed by using established processes. Therefore new forms of organization are necessary emphasizing on efficiency in internal management and communications. To solve these challenges in daily business within a company the use of several concepts has proofed to be helpful, organizational processing by using project management in particular.

Particular emphasis is placed on discussing how the unique characteristics of the tumor microenvironment not only impact disease progression and response to conventional anticancer therapies, but have also led to the identification of potential new therapeutic targets and treatment possibilities for cancer patients. Tumor Microenvironment also reviews the fundamental basis of target development, preclinical assessment, and the current clinical status of these therapies.

Stephan Küster Cultural Impact on Earnings Management

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Accounting and Taxes, grade: 1,0, Catholic University Eichstätt-Ingolstadt (WFI), language: English, abstract: This paper analyses the effect of Hofstede's cultural dimensions on earnings management on 433 firms in 18 european countries, all reporting under IFRS. The results of multivariate regression reveal that only one cultural variable, namely Power Distance, has a significant effect on earnings management measured by discretionary accruals. In contrast, the scores for Individualism and Masculinity have no significant influence. These findings suggest that culture still has an influence on earnings management as suggested by previous studies, but is diminishing due to international accounting har-monization.

The complexity of public-private partnership project procurement requires an effective process for pricing, managing and appropriate allocation of risks. The level at which risk is priced and the magnitude of risks transferred to the private sector will have a significant impact on the cost of the PPP deals as well as on the value for money analysis and on the section of the optimum investment options. The construction industry tends to concentrate on the effectiveness of risk management strategies and to some extent ignores the price of risk and its impact on whole life cost of building assets. There is a pressing need for a universal framework for the determination of fair value of risks throughout the PPP procurement processes. Risk Pricing Strategies for Public-Private Partnership Projects addresses the issues of risk pricing and demonstrates the use of a coherent strategy to arrive at a fair risk price. The focus of the book is on providing risk pricing strategies to maximise return on risk retention and allocation in the procurement of PPP projects. With its up-to-date coverage of the latest developments in risk pricing and comprehensive treatment of the methodologies involved in designing and building risk pricing strategies, the book offers a simple model for pricing risks. The book follows a thematic structure: PPP processes map; Risk, uncertainty and bias; Risk pricing management strategies; Risk pricing measurement and modelling; Risk pricing at each of the project life cycle stages – and deals with all the important risk pricing issues, using relevant real-world situations through case study examples. It explains how the theory and strategies of risk pricing can be successfully applied to real PPP projects and reflects the broad understanding required by today’s project risk analysts, in their new and important role in PPP contract management.

Kbal Tuba Ah N. Physical Design for Classroom Management

The importance of the physical environment for classroom management in early childhood classrooms has not yet been fully recognized. The information collected in this study about teachers' perceptions can be used to improve the physical environment of early childhood classrooms. Moreover, in the literature there is a lack of studies on early childhood teachers' perceptions related to the physical environment for classroom management. Thus, this study aims to examine the perceptions of a group of early childhood teachers in relation to the influence of the physical environment of the classroom on classroom management. Lastly, since the recognition of the significance and impact of early childhood classrooms increase, the physical environment of these classrooms and its influence on classroom management should be determined to improve early education centers and programs.

THE WRITING ON THE WALL The trilogy "Jante Universitet" offers a comprehensive critique of the Danish university system, showing the wide-ranging consequences of New Public Management to a country's educational standards and its economy. HANDBOOK AND NOVEL-LIKE STORY The trilogy offers the unique combination of a handbook and an authentic story. The novel-like story line is based on the experiences of a German professor, documented over a 3-year period at a Danish university.As a systematic handbook, "Jante Universitet" can be read within two hours using the clearly marked "short cuts". The individual episodes depict the absurdities of everyday life at a university, from departmental structures and petty intrigues through a scandalous teaching strategy to the questionable management methods of administrators who have total power over the academic staff.The handbook is a tool for those who are interested in and have responsibility for university education - not only in Denmark, but in all countries where New Public Management has begun to negatively impact higher education. VOLUME 3: TOTALITARIAN STRUCTURESA totalitarian regime does not tolerate criticism.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Business economics - Industrial Management, grade: 1,3, LMU Munich (Information, Organisation und Management / und CDTM), language: English, abstract: "The most significant factor in America, leading to high production at low cost, is efficient management." This quotation is not from a longitudinal, empirical study, but it is stated by the British Productivity Council in the context of the Marshal Plan - the Anglo - American productivity mission in 1951. Hence, one question might be: Is there indeed a strong link between management practices and firm performance? A further question might be: How American management practices rank compared with European or Asian management practices? And what role plays organizational structure on firm performance? Are there interacted effects between management practices and organizational structure? Insights into the impact of management practices and organizational structure on firm performance are mainly based on theories.Consequently, there is a strong need to measure management practices and organizational structure across countries and cultures to verify theoretical hypotheses with empirical data. This paper sheds some empirical light on these topics as well as on the distribution of management practices and organizational structures across countries and industries.This book is based on a unique data set with more than 3500 management interviews to document and analyze the influen...

Highlights and examines the growing convergence between the food and agricultural industries—the technological, environmental, and consumer-related drivers of this change, and the potential outcomes This is the first book of its kind to connect food and the food industry with agriculture, water resources, and water management in a detailed and thorough way. It brings together a small community of expert authors to address the future of the food industry, agriculture (both for plants and animals), and water—and its role in a world of increasing demands on resources. The book begins by highlighting the role of agriculture in today's food industry from a historical perspective—showing how it has grown over the years. It goes on to examine water management; new ways of plant breeding not only based on genetic modification pathways; and the attention between major crops (soy, corn, wheat) and so-called «orphan crops» (coffee, cocoa, tropical fruits). The book then turns towards the future of the food industry and analyzes major food trends, the new food, and «enough» food; discusses possible new business models for the future food industry; and analyzes the impact that the «internet of everything» will have on agriculture and the food industry. Finally, Megatrends in Food and Agriculture: Technology, Water Use and Nutrition offers scenarios about how agriculture, food, and the food industry might undergo some radical transformations. Assesses the evolution of food production and how we arrived at today's landscape Focuses on key areas of change, driven by both innovation and challenges such as new technologies, the demand for better nutrition, and the management of dwindling resources Highlights the role of better-informed consumers who demand transparency and accountability from producers Is written by industry insiders and academic experts Megatrends in Food and Agriculture: Technology, Water Use and Nutrition is an important resource for food and agriculture industry professionals, including scientists and technicians as well as decision makers, in management, marketing, sales, and regulatory areas, as well as related NGOs.

Mayolo Alberto López Castellanos Agent Based Simulation Approach to Assess Supply Chain Complexity and its Impact on Performance

In today's global business environment, the intense competition, the changing and uncertain conditions, and the increasing customer's requirements are challenges for the companies' operational efficiency and profitability. In this context, companies highlight the importance of supply chain design and its holistic understanding in order to achieve and sustain competitive strengths. This book analyses supply chains as complex systems, whose performance is characterized by their structural configuration and emergent behaviour. The author analyses the supply chain structure and behaviour within the scope of complexity science. He focuses on supply chain complexity by means of a literature review and an empirical research, which give insights into the impact of complexity on supply chain performance. Moreover, within this book the supply chain is modelled as a complex system by considering the non-linear relationships of its geo-positioned elements. Finally, an agent based model is developed for the generic supply chain simulation, which allows assessing the impact of complexity on supply chain performance and characterizing the behaviour of supply chain designs. The materials presented in this book contribute to the understanding and management of supply chain complexity. This work complements existing complexity frameworks with a holistic analysis of complexity's impact on the performance of supply chain participants and their network. The findings of this work a...

In many public sector organisations, there has been little or no adoption of a proactive asset management strategy. Where an extensive property portfolio exists, this can result in poor overall utilisation of the portfolio, exemplified by excessive vacant property or properties not being put to best use. In such situations there is a risk that the building stock deteriorates more rapidly than expected, leading to expensive maintenance and repair charges. Lack of a proactive asset management strategy will impact on the services delivered by such organisations. Public Sector Property Asset Management covers all aspects of asset management in the public sector, including the overall concept, the development of asset management strategies and the implementation of asset management practices. It evaluates asset management strategies, processes and practices to show how effective management of property assets support business activities or service delivery functions. The reader will understand the importance of improving decision-making through the recognition of all costs of owning and operating those assets throughout their lifecycle, leading to improved business process activities or service delivery functions which greatly assist in meeting the social and economic objectives of such organisations. Written for all practitioners currently involved in asset management, the book will also be useful in the university environment, to those teaching, researching or learning about asset management in the public sector.

Mutale Sani Boniface Management of Village Water Supply Hand Pumps in Zimbabwe

Management of village water supply hand pumps in rural Zimbabwe is a matter that still requires much attention from the authorities, to run smoothly and sustainably. There are obviously still a lot of loopholes in the management of village hand pumps and water supplies are often interrupted due to inefficiencies that are inherent in the management systems of these hand pumps. It is also clear that numerous deficiencies existed at all levels of the management structures of the water supply systems in rural areas. DDF and BRDC had virtually no capacity to effect efficient operation and maintenance of village water supply systems for rural communities. In particular DDF was failing to procure spare parts for maintenance purposes .Critical technical staff as well as logistics in the water division was virtually non-existent. Without exception the RDC also had serious challenges of its own, in ensuring that efficient management structures at all levels were in place and functioning for effective management of hand pumps. Given this scenario, the communities were found not ready to be left on their own to manage their water supply systems in a sustainable manner.

Droughts are a major hazard to both natural and human-dominated environments and those, especially of long duration and high intensity, can be highly damaging and leave long-lasting effects. This book describes the climatic conditions that give rise to droughts, and their various forms and chief attributes. Past droughts are described including those that had severe impacts on human societies. As a disturbance, droughts can be thought of as “ramps” in that they usually build slowly and take time to become evident. As precipitation is reduced, flows from catchments into aquatic systems decline. As water declines in water bodies, ecological processes are changed and the biota can be drastically reduced, though species and populations may survive by using refuges. Recovery from drought varies in both rates and in degrees of completeness and may be a function of both refuge availability and connectivity. For the first time, this book reviews the available rather scattered literature on the impacts of drought on the flora, fauna and ecological processes of aquatic ecosystems ranging from small ponds to lakes and from streams to estuaries. The effects of drought on the biota of standing waters and flowing waters and of temporary waters and perennial systems are described and compared. In addition, the ways in which human activity can exacerbate droughts are outlined. In many parts of the world especially in the mid latitudes, global warming may result in increases in the duration and intensity of droughts. Drought and Aquatic Ecosystems is essential reading for freshwater ecologists, water resource managers and advanced students.

In Britain more than 16 million national newspapers are sold every day (disregarding regional as well as international papers). Thus the press reaches at least 40 million people and plays an important role in forming public and political opinion. Because of its considerable influence in public affairs it is considered to be an instrument for controlling the government. That is why the press is often called the "4th Estate". In Britain the press can be divided into different groups: Dailies and Sundays, Regionals and Nationals, Qualities and Populars. The difference between the quality and popular newspapers is basically obvious in style and conte nts. I will focus on the national, daily Populars in the following.

Qazi Shahed Iqbal, Khondaker Mohammod Shariful Huda Integrated Water Resources Planning and Management

Southwest Area Integrated Water Resources Management Project (SWAIWRMP) aims to rehabilitate and upgrade the existing flood control and. drainage/irrigation (FCD/I) schemes located in the Southwest region of Bangladesh, thereby achieving their maximum development potentials in terms of agriculture production, fishery production and incomes of the beneficiaries in a sustainable manner. Traditional environmental impact assessment (EIA) usually focuses on single-project development undertaken by single proponents in a narrowly defined physical area and defined time frame. The EIA carried out by SWAIWRMP eventually didn't address the cumulative environmental impact. That is why cumulative impact assessment especially for water sector project is very important and essential. There are a number of existing and proposed infrastructures in the Sub-Project area, which might have cumulative impact. This study has assessed cumulative impact for the compartment one of SWAIWRMP.

Faheem Iqbal Remote Sensing and GIS Application for Drought Severity Assessment

Drought is the major climatic threat that affects agriculture of arid areas. Detection and evaluating the impact of drought with traditional methods has been laborious and time consuming. Recently methods for drought monitoring are improved. This research assessed the drought conditions at temporal basis using the meteorological and agricultural parameters integrated with geo spatial technologies. Satellite based anomalies were calculated for NDVI, rainfall and crop yield, reference evapotranspiration (ETo) evaluate comparatively the per cent change in different years. The Standardized precipitation Index was also used as an indicator. The Spatial Auto correlation regression analysis was preformed between SPI, NDVI, rainfall anomalies, total seasonal rainfall, crop yield and ET o to observe the temporal pattern of drought. NDVI anomalies and crop yield anomalies have correlated to assess the agricultural drought, NDVI and rainfall anomalies were correlated to determine the meteorological drought. Relationship between crop yields, NDVI, SPI, rainfall anomalies was used to determine the drought condition related with rainfall deficiency.
