Environmental considerations were largely ignored for almost 200 years
in the development of the United States. Only in the last third of the
twentieth century did environmental factors begin to play a significant
role in the speed and direction of our national progress. These factors
have developed in us a new concern and recognition of the dependence
that we, as human beings, have on the long-term viability of the envi-
ronment for sustaining life.

eliminating disparities in health care; and
providing evidence to inform women in their
health care decisions.

The study of environmental harm is relatively new for most
criminologists. For myself, in writing this book I have had to draw
upon my own work over the last decade plus that of a relatively small
handful of criminologists who are fellow travellers in this area.
On the other hand, there is a wealth of material from other fields
and disciplines that is entirely relevant and useful to a study such as
This short book is about conserving insects, the most diverse and abundant
animals that share our world. In particular, it is about the common
focus of conserving individual species of insects. This so-called ‘fine filter’
(or ‘fine grain’) level of conservation parallels much conservation effort
for better-understood groups of animals such as mammals and birds,
for which species-focused conservation exercises are commonplace.
Report on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in
Zimbabwe pointed out that notwithstanding the poor performance of the economy,
Zimbabwe has made relative progress in a number of key areas such as universal
primary education. Enrolment in primary schools has consistently been relatively high (with
a net enrollment ratio of 91% in 2009 down from 98.5% in 2002). The rate of HIV infection
has also seen an improvement with a decline from 16.1 percent in 2007 to 13.7 percent by
2009 partly on account of public awareness programs and education.
As Carlo (2001) comments in a recent review, “research on cross-language
transfer has made some progress with regard to the issue of identifying particular skills
that appear susceptible to transfer from first- to second-language reading. However,
questions remain concerning the specification of the cognitive mechanisms responsible
for transfer as well as the developmental parameters that constrain transfer effects.
An environmental assessment initial quality and identify potential impacts to cultural goal of help desk staff and planners to assess the impact of projects related to environmental impact. The assessment will provide a survey of environmental impacts likely to ensure that if an aquaculture project is successfully implemented. Initial evaluation is also key to see what a positive impact and / or negative after project implementation. Typically, an assessment will be based on easily accessible information, previous studies, the local population, etc....

Calls for standards in education have been echoing across the nation for several years, especially since political leaders
of both parties decided to adopt bipartisan national goals for education. Standards without appropriate means of
measuring progress, however, amount to little more than empty rhetoric. To stay the course and achieve the national
goals for education, we must measure the things that really count.
Building on concrete examples of how mutual accountability enablers and structures, such as partnership policies and
sectoral or thematic working groups, can effectively promote gender-related development results, this dialogue will
address what targets mutual accountability frameworks should have in place to assess commitments on gender equality
and measure related development results, such as, for example, the number of girls with access to schooling.
