Industrial Air Quality Management in Vietnam: A Strategic Reference, 2007
INTRODUCTION & METHODOLOGYWhat Does This Report Cover?The primary audience for this report is managers involved with the highest levels of the strategic planning process and consultants who help their clients with this task. The user will not only benefit from the hundreds of hours that went into the methodology and its application, but also from its alternative perspective on strategic planning relating to industrial air quality management in Vietnam. As the editor of this report, I am drawing on a methodology developed at INSEAD, an international business school (www. For any given industry or sector, including industrial air quality management, the methodology decomposes a country's strategic potential along four key dimensions: (1) latent demand, (2) micro-accessibility, (3) proxy operating pro-forma financials, and (4) macro-accessibility. A country may have very high latent demand, yet have low accessibility, making it a less attractive market than many smaller potential countries having higher levels of accessibility. With this perspective, this report provides both a micro and a macro strategic profile of industrial air quality management in Vietnam. It does so by compiling published information that directly relates to latent demand and accessibility, either at the micro or macro level. The reader new to Vietnam can quickly understand where Vietnam fits into a firm's strategic perspective. In Chapter 2, the report investigates latent demand and micro-accessibility for industrial air quality management in Vietnam. In Chapters 3 and 4, the report covers proxy operating pro-forma financials and macro-accessibility in Vietnam. Macro-accessibility is a general evaluation of investment and business conditions in Vietnam.

Soils and Environmental Quality
Aperpetual bestseller, this third edition remains the obvious choice for those instructors who strive to make their teaching applicable to contemporary issues. The three authors, all teaching professors distinguished in soil science, have updated this student favorite to include a greater number of even more relevant topics. Responding to requests, they have also placed an increased emphasis on management issues. As with previous editions, the third edition offers students in soil or environmental science an overview of soil science, hydrology, atmospheric chemistry, and pollutant classification. The text moves from the theoretical to the practical with an abundance of contemporary examples, such as an exploration of allowable pesticide concentrations in drinking water and an inquiry into soil contamination from the trace elements in organic by-products. Also considered are the use of soil carbon sequestration as a remedy for global climate change, and the effects of acid precipitation on forestation. NEW TO THE THIRD EDITION: New chapters on nutrient management planning, and the environmental testing of soil, plants, water, and air Additional and revised case studies that continue to relate academic content to real-life situations, while inspiring students with real -life challenges to solve Eight-page color inset Direct encouragement and links to fully access the Internet as a resource for the most up-to-date findings Always Relevant, Always Interesting The text also covers environmentally-related current events, fostering discussion of the political, economic, and regulatory aspects of environmental issues, the human side of environmental problems, the use and misuse of the scientific method, and potential bias in the presentation of facts. Students in soil science, environmental science, chemistry, biology, geology, and other disciplines will gain valuable insight from this multifaceted text.

Mathematical Models for Planning and Controlling Air Quality: Proceedings of an October 1979 IIASA Workshop
Mathematical Models for Planning and Controlling Air Quality documents the proceedings of an IIASA Workshop on Mathematical Models for Planning and Controlling Air Quality, October 1979. The Workshop had two goals. The first was to contribute to bridging the gap between air-quality modeling and management. The second was to consider an unusual air-quality control strategy: namely, real-time emission control. The book is organized into two parts, corresponding roughly to the two goals outlined above. Part One examines the role of mathematical models in air-quality planning and includes: a presentation of a decision maker's viewpoint; illustrations of various types of models (descriptive and/or decision models) available to decision makers; assessments of the role of models in actual decision making; and two papers on the more traditional question of the significance and range of application of descriptive models, i.e, of models that represent the physics of the air-pollution phenomenon. Part Two is devoted primarily to real-time control. It includes a presentation of the IIASA case study of the Venetian lagoon; and papers on various aspects of this research; on alternative concentration predictors; and descriptions of implementations of real-time forecast and control schemes in Japan and Italy.

Safety and Quality in Medical Transport Systems
The Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) has been accrediting air and ground transport services since 1991. One of the most significant needs the Commission has recognized is to assist transport services in creating a culture that supports safety and quality for both crews and patients. Most of the helicopter EMS (emergency medical service) accidents and many ground ambulance accidents can be attributed to human factors and systems designs that lead to poor decision-making. Management commitment is vital to create and maintain a culture that supports risk assessment, accountability, professionalism and organizational dynamics. This reference book has been created by CAMTS to address this need directly and comprehensively. It offers a groundbreaking collection of expert insights and practical solutions that can be used by EMS, Fire and Rescue, public and private services, and professional emergency and transport professionals worldwide. Quoting from the foreword written by the late Robert L. Helmreich, Professor Emeritus of Psychology at The University of Texas Human Factors Research Project, 'This is an important book which should be required reading for everyone involved in patient transport, from managers and dispatchers to those at the sharp end… The experienced and able authors and editors of this work use culture as the overarching concept needed to maximize safety while delivering patients expeditiously.'

The Quality of Life in Latin American Cities: Markets and Perception
This book explores a new method of monitoring the quality of urban life, combining objective and subjective information to assess quality of life by using the market price of housing and individuals' life satisfaction in six Latin American cities: Bogota, Buenos Aires, Lima, Medellin, Montevideo and San Jose. Housing prices show how the market values characteristics of not only a house itself, but also its surroundings. Life satisfaction, though less measurable, can be approximated using a simple survey question. Those measurements can be used to answer questions such as the following: What problems have the greatest impact on people's opinion of city management, and which have the most widespread effects? Is the city perceived as improving or growing worse in certain aspects, and do perceptions match objective indicators? Do gaps between perception and reality differ among parts of the city, especially high and low-income areas? Where can homebuilders most feasibly seek solutions to problems such as inadequate road infrastructure, a lack of recreation areas or poor safety conditions? Which problems should be addressed first by government authorities in light of their impact on the well-being of various groups of individuals and in light of private actors' ability to respond? Which homeowners derive the greatest economic benefit from public infrastructure or services? When can or should property taxes be used to finance the provision of certain services-or the solution of certain problems? This book suggests that it is possible to put into practice a monitoring system that is easy to operate and entails reasonable costs, but also has a solid conceptual basis. Long the ideal of many scholars and other observers, such a system may now be close to becoming a reality, and one with significant potential for contributing to public decision-making processes.
