Main Objectives: Discuss the financing issue for transport infrastructure development and management in Vietnam; discuss mobilization of financing sources for transport development in Japan, in order to draw Useful Lessons for Vietnam.
Liferay in Action is a comprehensive and authoritative guide to building portals on the Liferay 6 platform. Fully supported and authorized by Liferay, this book guides you smoothly from your first exposure to Liferay through the crucial day-to-day tasks of building and maintaining an enterprise portal that works well within your existing IT infrastructure.
In a decentralized-decisions economy under uncertainty, the financial system can be seen as
the complex of institutions, infrastructure, and instruments that the society adopts to minimize the
costs of transacting promises under agents’ incomplete trust and limited information. Building on a
microeconomic, general equilibrium model that portrays such fundamental function of finance, this
study analytically shows that, in line with recent empirical evidence, the development of financial
infrastructure stimulates larger and more efficient capital industrial accumulation.
Access to safe drinking water and sanitation is a basic necessity. However, such access is highly
variable around the world and in particular in Africa, Asia and South America. Much progress still
remains to be made in infrastructure improvements and poverty reduction. A recent World Bank
report, for example, noted that more than 100 million people in the Latin American region alone
lack access to potable water and adequate sanitation systems.
Compounding the issue of water availability is contamination of water supplies and the lack of
wastewater treatment facilities.
IMS – the IP Multimedia Subsystem of the 3GPP family of telecommunication standards –
may very well be at the same time the worst and the best kept secret of the telecom world.
“Secret” because it is essentially designed to be invisible – the modern version of the infrastructure
that delivers communication to the world. “Worst kept” because it has dominated
the strategies for communication evolution in the past years, and has thus been very visible,
at least to those in the industry.
For most rural people in Cambodia, rice fi elds and associated habitats are important sources
of fi sh and other aquatic animals (OAAs), which provide both nutrition and income. A lack of
quantitative information contributes to a general neglect of rice fi eld fi sheries in development
planning, which usually favours intensifi cation of rice production that may negatively impact
the fi shery.
A modern hatchery for clams (M. lyrata) spat production has been established at the Aquaculture Research Institute of the North Central Division (ARSINC) with all necessary infrastructure. A lot of the success of oyster spats have been produced using these facilities. Hatcheries can be used for commercial production of both controversy and research and development.
Reporting Services is a powerful tool for SQL Server 2005 database administrators, developers, and other IT professionals, enabling them to make sense of the immense amount of data generated by enterprises of all sizesShows readers how to create, manage, and distribute information as well as how to design, produce, and distribute reports that meet the needs of the stakeholder
Anomalous climatic outcomes such as higher temperatures, intense rainfall and flood, frequent and severe droughts are now at the new level. Without appropriate adaptation measures, climate change is bound to exacerbate vulnerability of society, place food security and human health at risk, threaten the lives of growing urban population and impede the goal of attaining sustainable development. The human and social dimensions of climate change, including climate policy, are essential parts of our response to the many challenges emanating from climate change....
Completing the Oracle SOA Infrastructure Implementation Certification develops your conceptual and real-world understanding of the primary components of the Oracle SOA Suite, including BPEL process engine and Oracle Service Bus and will allow you to become familiar with Service Oriented Architecture concepts This definitive certification guide provides a disciplined approach to be adopted for successfully clearing the 1Z0-451 Oracle SOA Foundation Practitioner exam to attain the Oracle SOA Infrastructure Implementation Certification.
Following site characterization, working hypotheses
about important mechanisms that control the
behavior of injected CO2 are developed and tested.
This approach has been studied extensively over
the last decade from a risk assessment perspective
(Savage et al., 2004; Lewicki et al., 2006). The
mechanisms that have controlled past behavior,
and will control future behavior, need to be
understood through fluid flow simulation based
on an understanding of the fluid and chemical
processes active at the pore level and guided by
available injection/production and monitoring
Although processes for the production of LVOC are extremely diverse and complex, they are
typically composed of a combination of simpler activities and equipment that are based on
similar scientific and engineering principles. Chapter 2 describes how unit processes, unit
operations, site infrastructure, energy control and management systems are combined and
modified to create a production sequence for the desired LVOC product.
BackGround Balanced, equitable and sustainable development of the fisheries sector must take all social groups into account. However, the role of women in the sector has, for a long time, gone unrecognised and their voice is heard rarely among managers, policy makers and legislators.1 The lack of recognition and representation is not only unfair, but it also leads to an incomplete understanding of how the sector as a whole operates and functions.
efficiency and quality. NGOs should be involved as management partners of the
government for the shrimp cultivating areas. This will help reduce social tensions
among various groups in the cultivating areas and ensure participation of the poor
communities in all activities including decision making process.

suffer from lack of capital to perform fishing activities. They have to rely on
informal sources such as middlemen and traders for credit at a very high cost.

Argues that, in order to address the growing economic, social, and political pressures of the 21st Century, China will have to build solid foundations for a knowledge-based economy by updating the economic and institutional regime, upgrading education and learning, and building information infrastructure.
Oracle Database seems complex on the surface. However, its extensive feature set is really built upon upon a core infrastructure resulting from sound architectural decisions made very early on that have stood the test of time. This core infrastructure manages transactions and the ability to commit and roll back changes, protects the integrity of the database, enables backup and recovery, and allows for scalability to thousands of users all accessing the same data.
This book addresses the contribution of transport and energy infrastructure to poverty reduction. This is a core issue for ADB and for the other three donors that collaborated in producing this book (DFID, JBIC, and World Bank). The country studies examined this contribution in the People's Republic of China (PRC), India, and Thailand, which (particularly in the case of the PRC and India) are of strategic importance for overall ADB lending, and account for a substantial portion of total ADB lending for transport and energy....
