ICT Evaluation in the Irish Higher Education Sector

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejise-volume1...
The Information and Communications Technology (ICT) evaluation literature now spans several decades. Nonetheless, evidence continues to suggest that there remains a lack of formal ICT evaluation practices within organisations. Several challenges exist, not least the social and political contexts within which evaluation takes place and limitations in existing evaluation techniques. However, while ICT evaluation exercises have spanned many fields of study, an in-depth review of the ICT evaluation literature revealed that there is a paucity of ICT evaluation studies within the Higher Education sector. The 14 Irish Institutes of Technology (IoTs) have recently undergone an extensive transformation of their ICT systems. A national project launched by the Department of Education and Science and the Council of Directors of the IoTs performed a nationwide implementation of a suite of integrated Information Systems for library, human resources, finance and student management functions in...

Natural Disasters: What is the Role for Social Safety Nets?

issuu.com/world.bank.social.protection/docs/1102...
This paper makes the case for why safety nets are an important tool for managing the risk of natural hazards. The use of safety nets is advocated both ex ante, to prevent and mitigate the impact of natural disaster and ex post, to cope with the impacts of natural shocks. Firstly, the paper explores the implications of contextual factors to be taken into account in the design of an effective safety net system to respond to the needs generated by natural disasters. Learning from the responses to a number of recent natural disasters, a typology of the different types of natural hazards which require different approaches to reduce their risk is introduced. Secondly, the paper considers some “guidelines” for improving the design and implementation of safety nets either to prevent and/or to recover from natural disasters. Finally, some conclusions and recommendations for more effective safety net and suggestions for addressing key issues are outlined.

Strong, Safe, and Resilient

issuu.com/world.bank.publications/docs/9780821398050...
Disaster risk management is essential in the fight against poverty. Disasters can, in an instant, wipe out decades of hard-fought poverty reduction and development gains and push countless households into poverty. Disasters disproportionally affect the poor: Vulnerable and marginalized groups, including women, children, the elderly, and people with disabilities, are at particular risk. East Asia and the Pacific is the most disaster-stricken region in the world, suffering from small recurrent as well as rare high-impact events. East Asia is rapidly urbanizing, and cities are becoming disaster hotspots. Unplanned or poorly planned urbanization, which puts more people and assets in harm’s way, is the single largest driver of disaster risk.

For Protection and Promotion: The Design and Implementation of Effective Safety Nets

issuu.com/world.bank.publications/docs/9780821375815...
Safety nets are noncontributory transfer programs targeted to the poor or vulnerable. They play important roles in social policy. Safety nets redistribute income, thereby immediately reducing poverty and inequality; they enable households to invest in the human capital of their children and in the livelihoods of their earners; they help households manage risk, both ex ante and ex post; and they allow governments to implement macroeconomic or sectoral reforms that support efficiency and growth.

Improving the Assessment of Disaster Risks to Strengthen Financial Resilience

issuu.com/world.bank.publications/docs/gfdrr_g20_high...
In 2011, the world witnessed record losses, estimated at up to US$380 billion, from disasters caused by natural hazards. Recent events have shown that no country―rich or poor―is immune to natural hazards. Addressing these rising losses is compelling leaders to develop more active approaches to disaster risk management. For this, countries need access to accurate risk information, to assess and integrate risk into decision-making and development planning. Information about risk is also useful to develop risk financing strategies that allow countries to increase their response capacity after disasters, while protecting their fiscal balance. Responding to a G20 request, this joint Publication by the Government of Mexico and the World Bank brings together the experiences of G20 and developing countries in strengthening financial resilience to protect their populations and assets.

Building Urban Resilience

issuu.com/world.bank.publications/docs/9780821388655...
Resilience is the ability of a system, community, or society exposed to hazards to resist, absorb, accommodate to, and recover from the effects of a hazard in a timely and efficient manner. Resilience in the context of cities translates into a new paradigm for urbanization, and forms base for a new understanding how to manage hazards and urban development. In the next decades, the major driver of the increasing damages and losses from disasters will be the growth of people and assets in harm’s way, especially in urban areas. Often lacking resources, infrastructure, services and the capacity to manage the increase in population, small cities could face heavy losses of life and property due to disasters, unless proactive measures are mainstreamed into governance and planning.
