Gender Perspectives in Implementation of Millennium Development Goals

This project focused on analysis of gender perspectives in the implementation of the millennium development goals (MDGs) in developing countries. The objective of the study are four fold: to establish extent to which feminization of poverty has been sustained by gender insensitive practices in Kenya; to assess the extent to which millennium development goals (3) principles have been integrated and mainstreamed in Kenya’s national development policies and programs; to examine public awareness about millennium development goal 3 and extent of their involvement in the advancement of its principles and;to explain the obtaining gaps, challenges and disharmony in the implementation of the millennium development goal 3 in Kenya. The study is guided by the feminism theory, which aims not only to understand the nature of the inequality but also seeks to promote women rights. The study exposes a number of initiatives by the Kenya government to enhance gender equality.The study confirms the hypotheses that the external origin of MGD 3 and the general lack of commitment among state and non state actors have affected the programmes implementation process in Kenya.

Evaluating Principals and Teachers implementation of Second Step

The aim of this study was to evaluate the implementation of Second Step, a social competence program for the promotion of social skills and the prevention of violence. Previous research suggests that the implementation has a significant bearing on program outcomes; and evaluation studies have identified huge variability in success when programs are implemented in different settings. This study investigated key organizational and individual factors in the implementation of the Second Step program in four Norwegian primary schools. Principals are crucial for the success of Second Step; formalization into school policy was important, but insufficient if not supported by principals’ leadership and management strategies. Teachers from schools with whole-school, mandatory implementation showed greater fidelity, than those in which using the program was optional. Using the program improved teachers’ social skills and made their teaching technique more students oriented. In summary there are too much focus on enabling factors (resource allocation, teacher training, and formalization into policy), and less on factors predisposing teachers to conduct the program successfully.

Key Performance Indicators for Private Finance Initiative in Malaysia

Prior to the implementation on Private Finance Initiative (PFI), Malaysia has implemented many different private sector participation models, prominently the privatisation model. PFI is observed as streamlining the previous privatisation by stipulating the standard regular evaluation of privatised entities'' performance through key performance indicators (KPIs). KPIs are expected to confront the privatised infrastructure project''s problems of shoddy workmanship, unfinished and delayed projects. Thus, with the aim of formulating the definition and variables of the KPIs for the assessment of public infrastructure PFI projects performance in Malaysia, this research establishes the KPIs of PFI for the development of public infrastructure in Malaysia. As KPIs are one of the key elements of PFI, this KPIs establishment urges the need for PFI guideline in standardising the execution of various schemes of Malaysia''s PFI, rising private concessionaire''s responsibility and accountability in providing public projects and finally encouraging the KPIs implementation in Malaysia''s construction industry.

Elementary Wildlife Biology

Several important factors contributed to the decision to produce this book. Foremost among these was the realization that basic of wildlife biology is largely ignored while complex part is dealt in detail at schools and college level in India. Although several universities and colleges in India are having wildlife biology either as a program or a course in recent years, no attempt has been comprehensively made to provide detailed knowledge about the wildlife India. Mostly, wildlife biology is dealt regional/species/group level rather than in the country level. Hence, this book deals much on the primary details about the wildlife resources of India and methods involved in studying the resources.

Insights into Social Ecology of ICT Implementation in Schools

Revision with unchanged content. Despite frequent attempts to address educational changes and the roles of ICT in effecting changes in student learning, few have conceptually examined ICT implementation within a wider context of managing change in schools. Methodologically, it has been argued that ignoring the multilevel nature of the data collected might incur significant discrepancies in the results. These research gaps direct us to develop models to explore how contextual factors contribute to effective ICT implementation, including the school-level factors. An organisational and sociocultural approach is adopted, and the analysis should help to answer the questions: 1.In a school context with ICT implementation, what are the factors affecting changes in student learning from a teacher-centred approach to a studentcentred approach? 2.How do the above factors interact with one another to bring about the changes? 3. How does ICT act as a lever to bring about the changes? 4. Among schools, what are the organisational features of schooling facilitating the changes? Apart from addressing to practitioners like teachers, senior teachers, and principals, this book is also directed towards policymakers and researchers for gaining insights in unleashing the power of ICT implementation in advancing changes in student learning.

WILDLIFE CONSERVATION IN NIGERIA''S NATIONAL PARKS

This book examined the performance of uniform wildlife laws in four selected National Parks in Nigeria between 1991 and 2004. The study became necessary because some authors have argued that the rapid loss of wildlife species in protected areas are largely attributable to the gross deficiencies inherent in the wildlife laws applied without considerations of the peculiar characteristics of the host communities and ecological differences in the respective protected areas. The study, therefore, appraised the occurrence of various wildlife offences in relation to convict sentences applicable to wildlife offenders. Wildlife legislation clauses which were detrimental to wildlife conservation in the national parks were identified and discussed. The study determined if equal application of wildlife laws in the national parks have similar and effective influence irrespective of the differences in geographical locations of the parks, ecological and socio- cultural characteristics of the host communities. Factors affecting the performance of uniform wildlife laws in the national parks were identified and discussed exhaustively.

CONSERVING WILDLIFE

This publication is based on a study carried out in Donyo Sabuk National Park in Kenya. The findings of the study have broad application in Kenyan scene where people/wildlife conflicts have reached peak levels. The issues hinge on historical mistakes committed by wildlife conservationists of yester years who ignored not only local people''s interests but failed to consider ecological needs of the wildlife when establishing national parks. The findings lead to the conclusion that a common ground can be found where both the government conservation policies and local people''s interests can accommodate each other. The problem is that the two groups have not been talking to one another. This publication discusses in details the various tools that could be applied to allay both groups'' fears and lay a foundation for cooperative participation in wildlife management in Kenya. The publication proposes a win-win approach focusing on commonly agreed goals for wildlife management, derived from the distinct needs and concerns of the various stakeholders whose interests are at stake.
