As the workshop summarized in this volume demonstrated, the research base
about learning in early childhood is expanding and has great potential to contrib-
ute to a broader set of national policy goals focused on making sure that all
children enter kindergarten ready to learn. With this important research base in
mind, the National Research Council’s Center for Education (CFE) convened a
workshop to focus on early learning in mathematics and science.
Why would an entrenched authoritarian regime establish an independent
constitutional court with the power of judicial review? This is one of the
most intriguing questions for students of contemporary Egyptian politics.
In a country where the ruling regime exerts its influence on all facets
of political and associational life, it granted the Supreme Constitutional
Court (SCC) substantial autonomy from executive control.
The Western Riverside County Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan (MSHCP) is an ambitious effort to balance development and environmental concerns in an area of rapid urban growth. In return for setting up a 500,000-acre conservation reserve, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the California Department of Fish and Game granted the county and cities in western Riverside County a 75-year

Few services are more important in our country than providing high-quality potable water and
ensuring that wastewater is properly treated and returned to the environment. Most Americans take
for granted the tens of thousands of people who are employed daily in addressing America’s water
and wastewater needs. Utility managers are responsible for making sure that proper water and
wastewater services are provided to residents, businesses, industries, and other customers within a
community. Water and wastewater employees work in utility operations and administrative support

For the past 14 years, Professor Ann Harding has spearheaded the devel-
opment of highly sophisticated microsimulation models and databases
within Australia, so that policy makers can gain much better information
about the likely distributional impact of current and proposed policies. She
leads the University of Canberra’s National Centre for Social and Economic
Modelling, established in January 1993, and is a professor of Applied Eco-
nomics and Social Policy at the University.
Một trong những thành tựu vĩ đại nhất của thế kỷ 20 đã được khoa học khai thác nông nghiệp với chính sách can thiệp để thách thức đói, nghèo đói và mất an ninh lương thực trong khu vực phát triển của thế giới.

The aim of this Country Brief for Zimbabwe is to update the Board of Directors on recent developments in Zimbabwe as well as serve as a programming instrument for the Bank’s intervention in the country in 2011-13. The Bank has supported Zimbabwe’s recovery over the past two years in line with the recommendations made in the Country Brief 2009/10 (ADF/BD/WP/2010/Approval) that was approved by the Board of Directors in 2010.
Sector Approaches and Sector Programmes have been
labelled over time in different ways: SIPs (Sector
Investment Programmes), SDPs (Sector Development
Programmes), Sector Expenditure Programmes, and
more recently SWAp (Sector Wide Approach). In spite
of the varied terminology, there are key principles on
which there is agreement in the international donor
Firstly, it is accepted that they should be led by
partner governments. Secondly, they have the
common goal of improving the efficiency and
effectiveness with which internal and external
resources are utilised.

In response to growing support for sustainable international development strategies,
the U.S. Congress has recommended that the Agency for International Development
(AID) create a new Collaborative Research Support Program (CRSP) that focuses on the
research needs of sustainable agriculture and natural resource management. The Office
of Agriculture in AID's Bureau for Science and Technology subsequently asked that the
National Research Council's Board on Agriculture (BA) and Board on Science and
Technology for International Development (BOSTID) undertake planning for the new
Creativity takes many forms, protected by different intellectual property (IP) rights,
often working in synergy. Certainly the patent system is suitable for some of the
innovative activity in Europe, though not all of it.
The European Patent Ofﬁce has the authority to grant patents on behalf of over
30 member states in Europe – but only patents. If all the innovation and creativity in
Europe is to be harnessed and commercialized, then other IP rights should be used,
and other institutions must provide support....

This report attempts to assess the potential impacts on the economy of a number of
plausible scenarios for international higher education enrolments over the next five years. It
provides a brief background to the sector (Section 2) as well as an assessment of its current
economic impact (Section 3).
Indonesia has received GFATM grants since 2003 with 17 grants worth $500 million across the three diseases. Grants have been awarded to the MOH, National AIDS Commission and civil society partners. Grants to the MOH are used to procure all ARVs and many of the ACTs and MDR-TB treatment regimens in Indonesia.
For almost 35 years, the Alberta government has taken a
proactive approach to developing the oil sands.
Through strategic investment and appropriate policies,
the province has helped the oil sands generate tremendous
economic benefits for the people of Alberta and Canada.
Planning began in 1974, when the Alberta government
formed the Alberta Oil Sands Technology and Research
Authority to proactively develop oil sands technologies
that would allow bitumen to be recovered at relatively
