Sustaining life : how human health depends on biodiversity by Eric Chivian( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,758 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: The Earth's biodiversity-the rich variety of life on our planet-is disappearing at an alarming rate. And while many books have focused on the expected ecological consequences, or on the aesthetic, ethical, sociological, or economic dimensions of this loss, Sustaining Life is the first book to examine the full range of potential threats that diminishing biodiversity poses to human health. Edited and written by Harvard Medical School physicians Eric Chivian and Aaron Bernstein, along with more than 100 leading scientists who contributed to writing and reviewing the book, Sustaining Life presents a comprehensive-and sobering-view of how human medicines, biomedical research, the emergence and spread of infectious diseases, and the production of food, both on land and in the oceans, depend on biodiversity. The book's ten chapters cover everything from what biodiversity is and how human activity threatens it to how we as individuals can help conserve the world's richly varied biota. Seven groups of organisms, some of the most endangered on Earth, provide detailed case studies to illustrate the contributions they have already made to human medicine, and those they are expected to make if we do not drive them to extinction. Drawing on the latest research, but written in language a general reader can easily follow, Sustaining Life argues that we can no longer see ourselves as separate from the natural world, nor assume that we will not be harmed by its alteration. Our health, as the authors so vividly show, depends on the health of other species and on the vitality of natural ecosystems. With a foreword by E.O. Wilson and a prologue by Kofi Annan, and more than 200 poignant color illustrations, Sustaining Life contributes essential perspective to the debate over how humans affect biodiversity and a compelling demonstration of the human health costs

Malaysia enterprise training, technology, and productivity by New Holland (Publishers) Ltd( file )
8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 561 libraries worldwide
This report presents the findings of a study of enterprise-based training in Malaysia ' s manufacturing sector which was jointly sponsored by the World Bank, the United Nations Development Programme, and the Economic Planning Unit, a Malaysian government agency. Using data from a survey of 2,200 companies, the study investigates the incidence and productivity outcomes of employer-sponsored training in in-house company programs and from external training providers, and the role of government policies and incentives in encouraging private sector training. The study also looks more broadly at technology in firms, their use of quality control systems, and the skill requirements associated with the use of new technology and organizational change. The report concludes that while some firms, especially the larger, more technologically progressive ones and the multinational companies do provide training, in general, most Malaysian firms underinvest in employee training. It documents the primacy of the private sector

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 316 libraries worldwide
The report ...calls for a "twin track approach that combines stringent mitigation to limit 21st Century warming to less than 2°C (3.6° F) with strengthened international cooperation on adaptation. On mitigation, the authors call on developed countries to ... cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% of 1990 levels by 2050. It advocates a mix of carbon taxation, more stringent cap-and-trade programmes, energy regulation, and international cooperation on financing for low-carbon technology transfer. Turning to adaptation, the report warns that inequalities in ability to cope with climate change are emerging as an increasingly powerful driver of wider inequalities between and within counties. It calls on rich countries to put climate change adaptation at the centre of international partnerships on poverty reduction
