Governing Water (2004 – 2007) is a project funded by the European Commission. The aim is to raise awareness and promote dialogue on good governance, using water as a discussion issue, within and between communities in Fiji. More than 40 rural and urban communities on Viti Levu and Vanua Levu have participated in the Governing Water project. Through Governing Water, over 300 community facilitators and schoolteachers have been trained.
The purpose of this book is to share with science and health professions educators
the exciting discoveries that are being made by the application of team-based learning
(TBL) to the special challenges of modern medical education.
Professors in these disciplines everywhere face three daunting challenges. First, an
enormous amount of information must be learned, and it keeps growing. Second,
students must learn how to use and apply that information in contexts that vary
enormously between clinical cases and populations of cases.
At the same time the edu-
cation sector has usually attempted to develop an approach to health grounded
in educational parameters e.g. enhancing students’ knowledge and understand-
ing, developing their analytical and evaluative competencies about individual
and community health issues and providing opportunities for them to create
ideas and strategies to address such issues.

Since its inception in 1999, The World Life Sciences Forum BioVision has
played a vital role in promoting the sustainable development of Life Sciences
on an international level, ensuring that they remain beneficial to humankind
and the environment, and committed to ethics.
BioVision has established itself as a platform for dialogue and debate by
engaging top stakeholders and policy makers from Science, Society and Industry
in discussions of what science can do, what society is willing to accept, and
what industry can produce, all within a sound ethical framework.
Building on concrete examples of how mutual accountability enablers and structures, such as partnership policies and
sectoral or thematic working groups, can effectively promote gender-related development results, this dialogue will
address what targets mutual accountability frameworks should have in place to assess commitments on gender equality
and measure related development results, such as, for example, the number of girls with access to schooling.
The Center for Audit Quality (CAQ) was founded in order to promote a robust dialogue about
issues of importance to the U.S. capital markets for the benefit of investors, the public company
auditing profession and the markets as a whole. As part of that mission, the CAQ recently
commissioned a survey to examine an essential participant in the preparation of audited
financial statements: audit committees.
