Massive investments in Water and Waste Water Industry (WWWI) are made every year in a large number of projects by the central and state government, Public Private Partnership (PPP), financial institutions and others. In order to get commensurate benefit with the cost, it is essential that the projects and programmes are judiciously selected and their plans of implementation are precisely prepared. This paper probes the use of Planning and Control Systems (PCS) in WWWI for improving investment decisions and project implementation with the help of different schedules, to facilitate support for implementation of PCS during Project Execution. The Schedule for Technical Hindrance and Risk has in depth study with its impact on Project Completion and Cost. The Schedules rationalized periodically, monitored systematically, evaluated concurrently for controlling costs and resources aids to take remedial actions before things become critical. The findings in this paper will offer valuable insights on Planning and Controlling the project with the help of Schedules, explicitly for Technical deviations and Project Risks to drive in for timely completion of projects within budgeted costs.
_This volume addresses the current situation in higher education and what creative action needs to be taken for the future development of the various systems of higher education. Higher education in the 21st centuries is under immense pressure from various sides. First, there is dramatic limitation of funding from public sources and limited and selective funding support from private sources that is re-constructing the landscape of higher education in most societies around the World. Secondly there is the continuous stream of administrative re-organization efforts of political origins (e.g. "the Bologna process") that guide the advancement of higher education in our present time. Increasing privatization of all forms of higher education-from bachelor to doctoral levels-and its corresponding focus on the advancement of the kind of knowledge that has immediate applicability in various spheres of societies leads to the question- what kind of creativity is expected from the new cohorts of students-future makers of knowledge-once the current social re-organization of higher education systems becomes fully established. To address these questions the international, interdisciplinary cast of authors in this volume provides a multitude of possible scenarios for future development of the systems of higher education.This book on "Sustainable Futures of Higher Education" captures the current trends and perspectives of the Knowledge Makers from various nations of the world on meeting and greeting the challenges of globalization and the pressures of the knowledge economy. It makes a strong case for universities of tomorrow sustaining their autonomous thinking and yet nurturing an environment of collaborative partnership with society, corporate and industry to fuel innovations in plenty and continuous supply of new science and technologies. Higher Education has been and shall remain a powerful vehicle of national and global transformation. I see a great value of the publication in impacting the minds of the leaders in higher education around the globe for revitalizing the universities.Professor P. B Sharma, President of Association of Indian Universities, AIUHow should the higher education system be in the globalization era? In this book Jaan Valsiner and his colleagues analyze, criticize the existing and propose a new higher education system. When we say "higher education", three different layers are supposed to be there-- the lower, the middle and the higher. The latter has the function of production of new knowledges. Without new knowledge, our societies are never improving. Authors warn commercialized systems such as the "Bologna system" overestimate the homogeneity of education. ""Universities without Borders" would guarantee both diversity and innovation in the higher education systems.Professor Tatsuya Sato, Dean of Research, Ritsumekan University
This book presents a new framework for understanding, analyzing and improving agro-ecosystems services and their governance. It incorporates interdisciplinary approach taking into account the role of specific institutional environment (formal and informal rules and rights), behavioral characteristics of agents (preferences, bounded rationality, opportunism, risk aversion, trust), transactions costs and their critical factors (uncertainty, frequency, asset specificity, appropriability), comparative efficiency of market, private, public and hybrid modes of governance, efficiency of feasible modes for public intervention (assistance, regulation, taxation, funding, provision, partnership), needs for multilateral, multilevel and multinational governance, technological and ecological factors. In depth analysis is made on the state and prospects of environmental governance in Bulgaria during post- communist transition and EU integration. Book is helpful for scholars, businessmen, farmers, civil servants, policy-makers, interest groups, non- governmental and international organizations, and individuals who want to understand and contribute to agro-ecosystem services.
The study conceptualized Public-Private Partnership (PPP) in education and reviewed current research in this area to identify and analyse PPP programmes in global perspective. The review of literature provided experiences and lessons learnt from different programmes. Objectives of the study were to clarify the concept and current status of PPP in education and analyse the existing initiatives of Public-Private Partnerships in education to explore new dimensions and models of PPP that could be integrated into the mainstream education system of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. The study found a wide range of PPP in education provision the world over, each with different characteristics, design features and country context. It was discovered that there is a dire need for introducing PPP in education. The study made three dimensional recommendations: firstly, recommendations for improving and reforming the PPP initiatives, secondly, recommendations regarding new dimensions in PPP, and thirdly, suggestions for integrating them in the mainstream education system of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan.
This study assesses the feasibility of public-private partnership within the Coastal Alerce National Park (CANP) to be established in the region of Los Rios, Chile. The study concludes the new park can be managed under public-private partnership arrangement because of the socio-economic benefits attached to it, particularly tourism. More important, key stakeholders have reached a formal agreement for collaboration and financing the establishment of the park. However, the study reveals a missing supportive legal framework for public-private arrangements. Also, the financial sustainability for the park is not feasible. These issues need to be addressed for the public-private partnership to function properly. An important lesson drawn from the study is that there is no fixed model for stakeholders participation in co-management arrangements. Instead, various options are possible depending on specific contexts. It appears then that the best way to practice co-management is learning by doing and improving along the way. The suggested approach is to start the process steps by steps and improving co-management as socio-economic and legal situations allow.
The author focuses on how development-oriented non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and microfinance institutions (MFIs) are suited to the dual development process of improving the wellbeing and empowerment of the poor and other marginalized peoples (especially women) in Africa and other developing countries, focusing on Uganda. NGOs and MFIs are seen as a third approach (i.e. an alternative to state or market strategies) to achieving sustainable development and poverty reduction. The author discusses the following central issues: rethinking development strategies in Africa as a result of the failure of the state or market to deliver economic growth and poverty reduction, and the rise of the NGO sector to fill the vacuum, clarification of the on-going confusion between MFI performance and impact assessment, the inadequacy of economic reforms in Uganda to benefit the rural agricultural producers, NGOs and MFIs in Uganda as part of the development strategy and their potential to spur development, the commercialization of MFIs and its implications, lessons from successful MFIs in Uganda and globally, and an analysis of how NGOs and MFIs working together with the public and private sectors (in a triple partnership) can achieve sustainable development and poverty reduction in Uganda and other African countries.
The strongest and most scholarly rationale for this study is to make a contribution in the field of Public Administration by documenting that there is a need for increased understanding and dialogue about the idea that PPP could improve local economic development of the metropolitan municipalities in South Africa, in particular if an appropriate PPP model is constructed. Creswell (1998:94) writes that the rationale for a study is not "the discovery of new elements, as in natural scientific study, but rather the heightening of awareness for experience which has been forgotten and overlooked. By heightening awareness and creating dialogue, it is hoped that this research project could lead to better understanding of the manner in which PPP and LED appear in municipal policy documents and South African academic literature and are understood by councillors and some officials. It is through the insights that lead to improvements in municipal public administration". The need for this study is to provide a new line of thinking, that is, to see PPPs as forming part of the political economy of Public Administration.
Even though the emergence and expansion of textile manufacturing in Ethiopia was initiated around the year 1925, the majority of textile factories were not well established until and after the 1950s. Much of the factories are still publicly controlled. The industry focuses largely on the domestic market. The main problems are related with globalization and competition in the local and international market. The sector can only play its role properly and become competitive when it improves its product quality, productivity, pricing strategy, machinery conditions and the general marketing activities. Improving the quality of cotton is the essential factor to improve the quality of fabrics and yarns in the factory. In marketing, the brand name is the major selling tool and one of the most important components of product personality. Public - private partnership may be the recommended solution for problems prevail in the textile sector. This book gives conceptual framework of marketing mix elements and should be especially useful to organizations engaged in textile investment to be competent in the international market, or anyone else who is professional in textile marketing.
