Disasters threaten all parts of the world and they appear to be increasing in frequency, scale and intensity. Despite huge improvements in the emergency response, permanent reconstruction is often uncoordinated, inefficiently managed and slow to begin. International agencies are geared to an efficient response in terms of humanitarian relief, but they are not well versed in the requirements of long-term reconstruction, which is often constrained by lack of planning and poorly coordinated management. The construction industry is typically engaged in a range of critical activities after a disaster, including provision of temporary shelter in the immediate aftermath and restoration of permanent shelter and public infrastructure once the immediate humanitarian needs have been attended to. Post-Disaster Reconstruction of the Built Environment identifies the challenges that face the industry and highlights best practice to enable the construction industry to address those problems which make an effective response to these unexpected events difficult. Written by an international team of experts, this book will help researchers and advanced students of construction understand the problems faced by communities and the construction industry when faced with a natural or man-made disaster, and identify the planning and management processes required by the industry to mount an effective response.

Local Planning for Terror and Disaster gives voice to experts in key fields involved with local preparedness, assessing the quality of preparedness in each field, and offering directions for improvement. Introductory chapters provide overviews of terror medicine, security and communications, which are indispensable to successful preparedness, while subsequent chapters concentrate on a particular field and how responders from that field communicate and interact with others during and after an event. Thus, a chapter by a physician discusses not only the doctor's role but how that role is, or should be, coordinated with emergency medical technicians and police. Similarly, chapters by law enforcement figures also review police responsibilities and interactions with nurses, EMTs, volunteers and other relevant responders. Developed from topics at recent Symposia on Terror Medicine and Security, Local Planning also encompasses aspects of emergency and disaster medicine, as well as techniques for diagnosis, rescue, coordination and security that are distinctive to a terrorist attack. Each chapter also includes a case study that demonstrates preparedness, or lack thereof, for a real or hypothetical event, including lessons learned, next steps, and areas for improvement in this global era which increasingly calls for preparedness at a local level.

Michael Decker Last Mile Logistics for Disaster Relief Supply Chain Management. Challenges and Opportunities for Humanitarian Aid and Emergency Relief

Due to the latest catastrophes caused by both man and nature, humanitarian logistics has received increasing interest from academics, practitioners and specialists. These interests are increased as well by an expanding market of disaster relief and by the fact that disaster relief supply chains are complex and dynamic, not to mention that they have a lot of uncertainties that make operations very complicated. Especially in disaster relief, the supply chains have to be fast, agile and flexible in order to rapidly provide the appropriate amount, and type of emergency supplies, to minimize human suffering or death. The last mile distribution is the final stage of the disaster relief supply chain, i.e. the delivery of relief supplies from local distribution centres to beneficiaries affected by disasters.The aim of this paper is to give an overview of supply chains in disaster relief, identify the main problems of the last mile distribution in disaster relief operations, describe optimization possibilities of the private sector, and examine the applicability for disaster situations.

Sharma Rahul, Sharma Satyakumari Keys of disaster management

The media forges a direct link between the public and emergency organizations and plays a very important role in disseminating vital information to the public before, during and after disasters. The media assists in the management of disasters by educating the public about disasters; warning of hazards; gathering and transmitting information about affected areas; alerting government officials, relief organizations and the public to specific needs; and facilitating discussions about disaster preparedness and response for continuous improvement. To help the media fulfill these roles, direct working relationships between the media and disaster management organizations should be established and maintained. Experience shows that regular interactions with the media before a disaster strikes, aids the effective flow of information and lays the groundwork for effective working relationships in the aftermath of a disaster.

Lejla Dizdarevic, Habib Alipour Tourism Planning in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Tourism planning in Bosnia and Herzegovina is an original and innovative book which resulted from 11 months long research. It examines the theoretical dimension of tourism planning approaches emphasizing the importance of two important dimensions, sustainability and community involvement. The author sets out to investigate institutions responsible for tourism development and to test possibility of application of "Third Way" model of tourism planning in the country. The findings show that the concept of tourism planning is well understood but remained a theoretical percept rather than an implementable practice. Furthermore, the present situation can be attributed to the political complexity of the economies in transitions and reluctance of the officials to commit themselves to a planning process which require responsibilities and sacrifices. The book gives chance to readers to draw clear picture of tourism potentials and problems in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The book is aimed to all those interested in tourism planning worldwide and especially tourism planning authorities in B&H with hope to be of great help in their future tourism planning practices and approaches

The only book to combine emergency management principLEs with proven military concepts Good disaster plans do not guarantee a good response. Any disaster plan rarely survives the first rain bands of a hurricane or the first tremors of an earthquake. While developing plans is essential, there must be systems in place to adapt these plans to the ever-changing operational environment of a disaster. Currently there is no set of standard disaster response principles to guide a community. The National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the Incident Command System (ICS) provide the framework to implement operational decisions, but they were never designed as operational concepts. The military has developed just such concepts and many of them can be adapted for civilian use. Disaster Operations and Decision Making adapts those military concepts and combines them with disaster lessons learned to create a new opera-tional paradigm. Emphasizing team building, Emergency Operations Center operational systems, and situational awareness, the book details easily adopted methods. All of these methods are designed to be incorporated into the NIMS and ICS framework to enhance a community's response to any type of disaster. Disaster Operations and Decision Making is an essential resource for emergency managers, fire chiefs, law enforcement officers, homeland security professionals, public health officials, and anyone else involved or interested in crisis management.

Nir Lipovetzky Structure and Inference in Classical Planning Nir Lipovetzky Structure and Inference in Classical Planning Новинка

Nir Lipovetzky Structure and Inference in Classical Planning

Classical planning is the problem of finding a sequence of actions for achieving a goal from an initial state assuming that actions have deterministic effects. The most effective approach for finding such plans is based on heuristic search guided by heuristics extracted automatically from the problem representation. In this thesis, we introduce alternative approaches for performing inference over the structure of planning problems that do not appeal to heuristic functions, nor to reductions to other formalisms such as SAT or CSP. We show that many of the standard benchmark domains can be solved with almost no search or a polynomially bounded amount of search, once the structure of planning problems is taken into account. In certain cases we can characterize this structure in terms of a novel width parameter for classical planning.

Nissar Barua Manpower Planning

This book seeks to explore the ambit of manpower planning. It surveys the existing literature on manpower planning and analyses the strength and limitations of the process. A thorough analysis is carried out on the various methods of manpower planning and a rigorous examination is undertaken on the operational techniques of forecasting manpower demand and supply. The inter-industry model is adopted to project the total demand for manpower in Assam and in the process the imbalance between the demand and the corresponding manpower supply is estimated. The objective behind the exercise is to indicate the imbalance between demand for and supply of manpower for different educational categories. This throws light on the surpluses or shortages which exist for different categories of manpower in an economy. The book presents an excellent exposition of the techniques used in the process of manpower planning.

Rob Reider Developing Successful Business Strategies. Gaining the Competitive Advantage

Developing Successful Business Strategies presents effective planning of business strategies and related budgeting concepts, and those activities necessary for the successful growth of the organization. The planning process is shown to be an integral function of developing management strategies for future growth and the gaining of competitive advantage in these fast moving times.

Inside, you'll learn of the relationship between effective planning methods (long-term and short-term) and the budgeting and control processes. We will also explore the interaction and interdependence of strategic planning (long and short term), detail planning, budgeting, and monitoring processes, and will demonstrate how planning is an essential first step in the preparation of an effective budget for the organization.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 1,7, University of Mannheim, language: English, abstract: New ventures are an important driving source of wealth in societies. Small and especially young ventures have a fundamental impact on the whole economy. Activities of new ventures provide various positive effects, such as the creation of employment, contribution to technol-ogical advance, innovation and the overall competitiveness of a society's economy (e.g. Brinckmann 2008, pp. 1).It is a big challenge for founders to assure that their new ventures survive and prosper. Many aspects have to be considered and high uncertainty is faced. One question which entrepreneurial research frequently tries to answer is whether planning in new ventures is positively related with performance. Plenty of research has been done on this question with rather incomplete and inconsistent results.Rather than trying to answer the question whether planning is beneficial in a strict yes or no manner, this thesis focuses on a contingent view on the stated problem. Several external factors, so called moderators that might have an impact on the success of planning, shall be examined in more detail. The first part of the thesis provides conclusions for planning in new ventures in context of the corporate life cycle concept. Specific planning requirements and topics will be discussed in the conte...

Increasing globalization has brought academics and practitioners to study national cultures in management. Likewise,the trend towards running business through projects has brought broader perspectives such as national cultures into project management.

However,the element of national culture is elusively described in the project management field. No extensive tests were found on the comparison of the project planning among countries,which could help to establish relationship between national cultures and project planning capabilities. Therefore, using GLOBE study to capture national cultures and Project Management Planning Quality(PMPQ) model to capture project planning approach and organizational planning support,this book compares national culture, project planning and organizational project planning support across four different countries: Malaysia,Japan,Sweden and Israel. It answers questions about the relevance of national culture to project planning and concludes with implications to project managers.

Winner of the Royal Town Planning Institute award for research excellence This critical examination of the development and implementation of planning gain is timely given recent changes to the economic and policy environment. The book looks both at the British context as well as experience in other developed economies and takes stock of how the policy has evolved. It examines the rationale for planning gain, how it has delivered substantial funds for infrastructure and affordable housing and, in the light of this, how it might continue to play a role in the funding of these. It also draws on overseas experience, for example on impact fees and public sector land assembly. It looks at lessons from the past for future policy, both for Britain and for countries overseas. Mechanisms to tap development value are also a global phenomenon in developed market economies – whether through formal taxation or negotiated contributions. As fiscal austerity becomes an increasingly challenging issue, ‘planning gain’ has grown in importance as a potential source of funding for infrastructure and new affordable housing, with many countries keen to examine, learn from, and adapt the experience of others. a critical commentary of planning gain as a policy timely post credit crunch analysis addresses recent planning policy changes
