Drying Up: What to Do About Droughts in the People's Republic of China

issuu.com/christinadianparmionova/docs/drying_up_-_wh...
Climate change is one of a few major factors that ensure the country will continue to struggle to supply its cities and industries and fields with enough water, particularly in the North, as well as face more frequent and longer droughts. The country has shown a stunningly agile disaster response system, but its system for disaster prevention and management is far less developed. The road to greater drought management and sustainable water supplies is demand management. How to achieve this in a historically hydraulic-engineering society is explored through the case study of Guiyang Municipality in Guizhou Province.

Applying the controllability principle and measuring divisional performance in UK companies

issuu.com/cimaglobal/docs/applying_the_controllabilit...
The choice of appropriate measures of divisional managerial performance has been widely debated in management accounting literature. One area of debate is the extent to which the controllability principle should be applied. Should different performance measures be used to evaluate the performance of divisional managers and the economic performance of the divisions or should a single measure be used for both purposes? Another area of debate relates to the choice of appropriate performance measures. The debate was concerned with which traditional financial measures should be used, especially as over the past decade new measures have emerged and non-financial measures have also been given more prominence. This executive summary therefore provides useful insight into the distinction between managerial and economic divisional performance.

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.

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.

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.
