Predictions are that sustainability becomes the next big topic for Human Resource Management after internationalization and globalization. This book gives new answers to these questions: - How can HRM contribute to attracting, developing and retaining highly qualified human resources over time? - How can a paradox perspective contribute to understanding and coping with paradoxical tensions? - How can sustainability be used as a 'deliberate strategy' for HRM?
The conceptual part of the book looks at the notion of sustainability, opens it up for Strategic HRM and identifies blind spots in Strategic HRM theory. Paradox theory is introduced as an analytical framework for Sustainable HRM. Initial suggestions are made for sustainability strategies and for coping with paradoxes and tensions. The exploratory part examines how 50 European Multinationals communicate their understanding of sustainability and HRM and which HR issues and practices they are linking to the topic.
The broad national coverage and array of topics in Natural Resources Law is of interest to readers across the country. Most cases are introduced with a photo or map of the place, along with a context-setting paragraph. The text conveys the drama behind resource disputes and policy and the love-of-place. Each group of cases--both foundational cases as well as new decisions--begins with a factually rich discussion problem tailored to the cases that follow. Many problems mirror traditional essay exam questions; others raise contemporary policy issues. This highly teachable book groups readings into discrete, assignment-sized chunks of 25-40 pages, allowing coverage of 2-4 cases or one problem during each class section. The main emphasis is on primary sources, and each chapter opens with relevant statutory and regulatory sections.
The Third Edition sees an expanded emphasis on energy, exploring the Deepwater Horizon disaster, fracking, renewable energy development on federal lands, and the Keystone XL Pipeline. Climate change is addressed in every chapter. More great problems appear alongside photographs and slides. New cases and notes examine Connecticut v. American Electric Powe r (climate change and nuisance law); Summers v. Earth Island Institute and Monstanto v. Geerston Seed Farms (standing); Carcieri v. Salazar (Indian Reorganization Act); Stop the Beach Renourishment v. Florida DEP and PPL Montana, LLC v. Montana (public trust); Arizona Cattle Growers' Ass'n v. Salazar and Center for Biological Diversity v. Kempthorne (Endangered Species Act); Edwards Aquifer Authority v. Day (water law); National Mining Ass'n v. Jackson (mountaintop removal/valley fill); and Casitas Municipal Water Dist. v. United States (regulatory takings and water rights.)
Thoroughly updated, the revised Third Edition presents:
Since the mid-1980s, most developing countries launched decentralization reforms. At least sixty claim to be devolving some natural resource management functions. These reforms are lauded for their potential to increase efficiency, equity, democracy and resource sustainability in the local arena. But what is taking place in the name of decentralization? Is the discourse on decentralization being codified in law? Are the laws being translated into practice? What are the effects of the reforms that are taking place? Natural resource decentralizations provide powerful insights into these questions-for natural resource decentralizations and for decentralizations writ large.
"Open the Mind Exercise the Soul "is the first book from internationally known psychic medium John Cappello. It links psychic ability with personal experiences and intellectual thought as it answers many questions about the relationship between religion, philosophy, and science with this controversial subject. This is an intelligent discussion offering a fresh, new look at psychic abilities.
Have you ever wondered ...
Why do psychic abilities exist?
What is the proof?
What is our soul's role in using them?
How do I access my gifts?
Can we connect with crossed-over loved ones?
What is really going on?
"Open the Mind Exercise the Soul "will answer these questions and more. Explored with real-world examples and new techniques, it boldly challenges you to examine your own abilities and receive clarity. While guiding you through the development of your own psychic gifts, you will learn to embrace experiences you may have questioned and relate to the author as he discusses his own path in metaphysics. For practicing psychics or beginners, the book combines historical information with spiritual exercises to assist you in gaining insight."
Water scarcity due to climate change, population growth, and economic development is a critical issue in many semi-arid and arid regions around the world. Water scarcity is especially critical in regions where water is shared by several riparian states and used for competing purposes (irrigation, domestic, industry, environment, and hydropower). There is evidence that water scarcity may give rise to conflicts among the riparian states that share water basins. At the same time, there is evidence that proper arrangements among riparian states create a basis for cooperation, which is a necessary condition for economic development, food production, environmental sustainability, and poverty reduction. This book presents a collection of work presented by a group of academics and policy experts dealing with the impact of water scarcity and variability on the ability to jointly manage shared water and the derived welfare of international states and nations sharing international river basins, consisting of economics, technology, law and institutions, geography, and international relations.The book covers theoretical aspects of management of transboundary water as well as case studies from hotspots around the world. The unique aspect of this book is the multidisciplinary nature of the chapters, reflecting a new field of research that will gain popularity as water scarcity will increase over time and across regions.The chapters from the book were presented at the "Management of Transboundary Water Resources under Scarcity: Perspectives on Agriculture and Food Security" workshop held at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, from June 22 to 23, 2015.
