This Guide is a companion to the HAP Humanitarian Accountability
and Quality Management Standard (2007), the full text of which is
attached as Annex 1. The Guide follows the structure and format of
the HAP Standard for ease of reference. It is aimed at the leaders,
managers, and staff of humanitarian agencies that wish to improve
the performance of their organisation, at those interested in assessing
the case for seeking humanitarian quality assurance certification by
HAP, and at those with responsibility for achieving compliance with
the requirements of the HAP Standard.

One of the keys to understanding Cisco is the OSI model. The OSI model permits
people to understand how internetwork works and it serves as a guideline or framework
for creating and implementing network standards, devices, and internetworking schemes.
Some of the advantages of the OSI model include:
• It allows for the breaking down of complex operation into simple elements;
• Enables engineers to specialize the design and development of modular elements;
• It provides standards for plug and play and multivendor integration....
The Climate Bonds Initiative (“CBI” or “the Initiative”) is an investor-focused not-for-profit organisation, promoting
large-scale investments that will deliver a global low-carbon economy.
We seek to develop mechanisms to better align the interests of investors, industry and government so as to catalyse
investments at a speed and scale sufficient to avoid dangerous climate change.
A key project is the Climate Bond International Standards and Certification Scheme (“Certification Scheme”).
Our results indicate that the assumed structural identication scheme is
compatible with the data. Based on the conrmed identication of funda-
mental and nonfundamental shocks, the historical stock prices are decom-
posed into fundamental components and nonfundamental components. In
contrast to Binswanger (2004), the decomposition shows that the linkage be-
tween Japanese stock prices and real activity shocks became strengthened
since the bubble collapsed in the beginning of 1990s.
In the past twenty years, a wide array of social, environmental and quality standards, codes of
practices and certification programmes have appeared in agriculture and the food sector.1
Governments and their research and extension branches have traditionally developed
production guidelines for specific commodities or systems. In recent years, especially in
developed countries, governments have also established regulations on food safety and quality,
voluntary standards on organic agriculture, and sustainability assessments schemes.
Several filers reported suspected Ponzi schemes where subjects gathered client
funds for investment in commercial real estate or real estate securities without
actually purchasing the underlying assets. A hedge fund claimed to invest millions
in CMBS and credit derivatives, but the filer found no evidence of CMBS ownership.
The hedge fund primarily bought long-term certificates of deposit earning minimal
interest, which were inconsistent with the fund’s investment strategy. In addition,
the filer noted many small client deposits, consistent with a Ponzi scheme.
