When will the oil run out? Various estimates put this anywhere from 20 years from
now to more than a century in the future. The shortfall in energy might eventually
be made up by developments in nuclear fusion, fuel cells, and solar technologies,
but what can substitute for gasoline and diesel in all the internal combustion enginepowered
vehicles that will continue to be built worldwide until then? And what will
stand in for petrochemicals as sources of building blocks for the extensive range of
“synthetics” that became indispensable during the twentieth century?...
Risk management is a topic on the agenda of an increasing number of organizations
around the world for the last 20 years or so. In fact, due to the large number of
corporate scandals, risk management has become central in the boardrooms of large
enterprises around the world as some stock exchanges in fact demand risk
management in the corporate governance work. Despite this, we have a financial crisis
that abundantly illustrated that risks were not properly understood – also in
corporations that supposedly were conducting risk management....

It has become a habit that following completion of a research programme, a review
or assessment is performed. Partly to justify the money and efforts that went into the
programme and partly to identify novel directions for new programmes. Following
this tradition, the sponsor of the International Cooperation research programme
(DLO-IC), the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality (LNV),
asked a small group of scientists to draw lessons from its recently completed North-
Welcome to the Authoritative and Leading Edge Content for Sustainable
Development. The practice of sustainable development is becoming widespread in all
industries around the globe today, and both small and large firms are realizing the
benefits provided by sustainability. The World Commission on Environment and
Development defines sustainable development as “development that meets the needs
of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their
The objective of this study is to assist public authorities to identify and address the future challenges of urban water supply, sanitation, and flood management in cities. In order to do that, this report uses the conceptual framework of Integrated Urban Water Management (IUWM) as a holistic set of planning and management tools incorporating all components of the urban water cycle to help develop efficient and flexible urban water systems in the future. The future of water in African cities: why waste water? argues that a new approach to urban water management is needed in Africa.
Unlike to fossil energy sources, renewable energy sources such as sunlight and wind are
existed in widespread geographical areas of the world and provide important opportunities
for energy efficiency. Higher growth rate in production of renewable energy and technologi‐
cal diversification of energy sources will contribute a significant energy security and sub‐
stantial economic benefits to many nations.
Major decisions were
made in the areas of integrating
poverty eradication and development,

By 2050, Chinese and global agriculture are expected to enter a new
era of development. Global population increase and economic development,
particularly in developing countries, will lead to greater human demand for food
and fiber. The demand for multifunctional agriculture will also increase as the
worsening global energy crisis induces the rise of the biomass energy industry.
Demand growth, diversification and market expansion provide unlimited
reverie for the future development of agriculture.
Colorectal cancer (CRC) represents a major public health problem worldwide. Fortunately most CRCs originate from a precursor lesion, the adenoma, which is accessible and removable. This is the rationale for CRC screening programs, which are aimed to diagnose CRC at an early stage or even better to detect and resect the advanced adenoma before CRC has developed. In this background colonoscopy emerges as the main tool to achieve these goals with recent evidence supporting its role in CRC prevention....
This morning I have reviewed the outlook, the Federal Reserve’s response, and its
policy options for the future should the recovery falter or inflation decline further.
In sum, the pace of recovery in output and employment has slowed somewhat in
recent months, in part because of slower-than-expected growth in consumer spending, as
well as continued weakness in residential and nonresidential construction. Despite this
recent slowing, however, it is reasonable to expect some pickup in growth in 2011 and in
