Changes in the use of land reflect a variety of environmental and social factors, necessitating an equally varied suite of data to be used for effective analysis. While remote sensing, both from satellites and air photos, provides a central resource for study, socio-economic surveys, censuses, and map sources also supply a wealth of valid information. Land Use Change: Science, Policy and Management presents spacial theories and methodologies that support an integrated approach to the analysis of land use change.
The Asian Development Review is the professional journal of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) that aims to disseminate the results of economic and development research carried out by ADB staff and external scholars.

ESSAYS ON ENROLLMENT POLICIES IN HIGHER EDUCATION None of the estimates presented in this section supports the hypothesis that effective
schools are more likely to attract the best peer groups in markets with fragmented school
governance than in those where Tiebout choice is more difficult to exercise.
Three Essays on Public Policy and Labor Economics I interpret the chapters results as cautious
support for the first of these, though the second would equally well explain the results and in
any case their implications for the productivity benefits of Tiebout choice are the same.
Clearly, interest rate policy implemented by the Fed’s
current operating procedures could not survive in this case. If
the Fed persisted in implementing interest rate policy with its
current procedures, the Fed would continually sell securities to
withdraw reserves and currency. Reserves, for example, would
be withdrawn to keep their marginal narrow liquidity services
yield from falling below the interest opportunity cost
represented by the federal funds rate target.
Since the 1945 publication of Vannevar Bush’s Science—The Endless
Frontier, the federal government has played the predominant role
in supporting research and development (R&D) and in establishing
public policies that affect science and technology (S&T) in the United
States. That role remains vitally important today. Almost every major
policy issue is influenced by scientific and technological information and
expertise. There remains a clear and ongoing mandate for a cohesive set
of federal policy and programs that both sustain R&D and promote the
application of new knowledge....
If a picture is worth a thousand words, a good story is worth many columns of
statistics. Stories present ideas, conflicts, and, sometimes, resolution. They
have depth and dimension, drama and emotion, making them more memorable
than data alone.
This belief in the power of the story encouraged us—with support from the
Kellogg Foundation—to start the Narrative Matters section of Health Affairs in
Policy governs many aspects of the professional lives of educators. It is also central to their and the sector’s response to crises such as the HIV/AIDS epidemic. As such policy can contribute directly to curtailing the attrition of educators, by encouraging and providing protection against threats such as HIV/AIDS, and by creating a positive and supportive working environment. This study examines workplace and HIV/AIDS policies from the Department of Education (DoE) and the HIV/AIDS policies of two trade unions, as part of a broader study looking at the attrition of educators.
This analysis addresses logistics structure alternatives for meeting demands for Low Altitude Navigation and Targeting Infrared for Night (LANTIRN) across a spectrum of operational requirements. The study amends earlier research with new data collected during the air war over Serbia by comparing the current decentralized policy with consolidated options in which maintenance capabilities do not deploy.
This paper concerns the relationship between the military transformation now under way and the manpower and personnel policies that are needed to support a transforming force. It was prepared for the Conference on the All-Volunteer Force After 30 Years, held in Washington, D.C., on September 16–17, 2003, and should be of interest to the defense manpower policy community. The paper and the research that underlies it are part of a larger RAND Corporation project on the flexibility of military compensation,...
The defense acquisition workforce includes more than 130,000 military and civilian personnel responsible for providing a wide range of acquisition, technology, and logistics support to the nation’s warfighters. This report summarizes workforce analyses that RAND has undertaken in support of the Defense Acquisition University,
he republics of Central Asia, which received comparatively little attention from the United States in their first ten years of independence, suddenly increased in value when the United States deployed forces and set up bases of operation in the region in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. In that context, the U.S. government
After completing this unit, you should be able to: Conclude that economists generally are not in favor of price supports in agriculture; conclude that price variation is the leading economic justification for farm price supports, while also concluding that this is insufficient justification for most economists; apply supply and demand and consumer and producer surplus analysis to demonstrate economists’ reasoning in opposing farm price supports; describe and illustrate the mechanisms that are typically used to enforce price supports, and you will know some of their history.
After reading this chapter, you should be able to: Explain why agricultural prices and farm income are unstable, discuss why there has been a huge employment exodus from agriculture to other U.S. industries over the past several decades, relate the rationale for farm subsidies and the economics and politics of price supports (price floors), describe major criticisms of the price-support system in agriculture, list the main elements of existing Federal farm policy.

This document should be useful for security program managers, technical and functional managers,
network and system administrators, and other information technology (IT) staff members. It provides
them with a structured approach to network security testing. Management personnel who are responsible
for systems can apply the testing procedures and tools discussed in this document to become informed
about the status of the assets under their stewardship. This document can also assist in evaluating
compliance with their organization’s security standards and requirements.
