Abstract Here I tackle three major issues, climate change, financial crisis and
national security, to disclose the weak points of current remedies and propose sustainable
solutions. Global warming and the unexpected 2008 financial crisis will
undoubtedly impact all nations. Treating those two critical issues solely by painkiller
solutions will fail because only adverse consequences are healed, not their
causes. Therefore, all sources of issues must be treated at the same time by enhancing
collaboration between politicians and scientists....

This book contains the papers presented at the International Conference on the
Management of Natural Resources, Sustainable Development and Ecological
Hazards, which was held in Patagonia, Argentina. The Conference name was
shortened to ‘The Ravage of the Planet’ to emphasize the urgency of the problems
The state of our planet continues to deteriorate at an alarming rate. We have
arrived at a situation where we need to determine urgent solutions before we reach
a point of irreversible damage....
The world's reliance on existing sources of energy and their associated detrimental impacts on the environment- whether related to poor air or water quality or scarcity, impacts on sensitive ecosystems and forests and land use - have been well documented and articulated over the last three decades. What is needed by the world is a set of credible energy solutions that would lead us to a balance between economic growth and a sustainable environment.

Energy and climate change are issues of critical importance for shaping a sustainable future, both in South Africa and globally. For South Africa, finding a policy approach which balances the increasing demand for energy with the need for sustainability, equity and climate change mitigation is a particular challenge. This book provides an innovative and strategic approach to climate policy, with local development objectives as its starting point.
The paper presents an overview of TDM measures which have been applied worldwide, and to identify its possibility for applying in each specific local situation. Then, the paper discuss on the traffic situation in Hanoi, evaluate the current implementation of TDM measures in order to identify appropriate measures. The findings may help city agencies in better applying the right TDM solution at the right situations and thus result in reducing the traffic congestion towards a sustainable transportation in Hanoi as well in other similar cities in Vietnam and Asian countries.

ETP2010 will build on the success of earlier editions, by providing decision makers with more detailed practical information and tools that can help kick-start the transition to a more secure, sustainable and affordable energy future.
Ecological issues and environmental problems have become exceedingly complex. Today,
it is hubris to suppose that any single discipline can provide all the solutions for protecting
and restoring ecological integrity. We have entered an age where professional humility is
the only operational means for approaching environmental understanding and prediction.
2 Sustainable concepts. There are many suggested solutions to the sustainable farming problem. These range from ‘landcare’ and ‘conservation farming’ to ‘permaculture’, ‘biodynamics’ and ‘financial restructuring’. Most of these solutions are very
Worldwide attention to environmental issues combined with the energy crisis force us
to reduce greenhouse emissions and increase the usage of renewable energy sources as
a solution to providing an efficient environment. This book addresses the current
issues of sustainable growth and applications in renewable energy sources. The fifteen
chapters of the book have been divided into two sections to organize the information
accessible to readers.
In modern technological society small businesses are expected to have an innovative role in the emerging knowledge economy, especially at an international level (EC, 2005; BERR, 2008). In fact the effective use of technological innovation is considered to be a prerequisite for small business survival (Packham, 2002; Packham et al, 2005). It has long been recognised that the small business sector is important for economic growth and it has been noted that there is a need for an international focus on small businesses having access to international markets (OECD, 2005).
For a timely answer to the question of sustainability, or how to provide for future generations, there
needs to be shared accounting of our social and physical resources. Supply chain transparency makes it
possible to map resource flows and ensure dependable production while avoiding social and environmental
problems. Open channels of communications can support a collective effort to account for the
impacts of supply chains and engage more people in the invention of long-term solutions, or sustainable
