Water system science and policy interfacing( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the issue of integrating science into policy, with an emphasis on water system knowledge and related policies, Recent discussions among scientists and policy-makers have highlighted that knowledge generated by many research and demonstration projects is not reaching policymakers in an efficient way. Conversely, the consideration of research results by the policy making community is not straightforward, and difficulties arise in integrating the latest research developments in legislation. The difficulty is enhanced by the fact that the policy-making community is not defining its role as "client" sufficiently well and the dialogue and communication channels are far from ideal to ensure an efficient flow of information. An increasing number of experts consider that improvements could be achieved through the development of a "science-policy interface" so that R&D results are synthesised in a way to efficiently feed policy implementation and that short, medium and long term research needs may be identified. This book examines the issue of integrating science into policy, with an emphasis on water system knowledge and related policies. An important feature of the book is the discussion of science-policy interfacing needs, illustrated by examples from authors from different countries in relation to water system management. This publication is timely in that the science-policy interfacing is now identified as a key challenge worldwide with regard to integrated water resource management, and therefore the book will be of great interest to scientists, water managers and stakeholders. Readers will also benefit from a better understanding of the needs, benefits and drawbacks of an established transfer mechanism of scientific outputs to policies

Perhaps nowhere is this ore obvious than with the state-of-the-art Supermax prisons, which offer exceptional security at an extraordinary cost--at least $50,000 per year per cell. And inside the walls of these fortresses of punishment, a growing number of inmates spend 23 hours a day, seven days a week locked alone inside cells that measure a mere 80 square feet. Visit two such facilities, the Arizona State Prison and the Pelican Bay State Prison, where inmates, guards and wardens take an unflinching look at what life is like on the inside. Discover that ten percent of the U.S. prison population serves their time in isolation. Find out why, and whether there might be a better way
