The participatory approach for Davao city is evaluated through access to information on a local level, and meaningful opportunities for engagement. Management as a successful process requires criteria that are specific and unique to the grassroots framework, where participants and users are included in the collection, dissemination, and benefits of the knowledge and data, that is the co-generation of knowledge in a practiced, politically recognized, on-the ground reality. The holistic picture of water balances of the watershed constructed in this study is a useful interpretation on the basis of best efforts constructed from the existing statistics, to discuss secure use of water in a sustainable manner. To demonstrate the use of water balance, pollution from point and non-point sources within the watershed are discussed using Total Maximum Daily Load. The estimated inputs to model availability and contamination are outlined within this research to act as suggestions for open-source community based monitoring efforts. From the process-based research, the localized data does not have rigorous, representative data sets which account for appropriate management-level modeling.
Cost Management" was written in response to changes in the global business environment. Unbridled access to information and intense competition has meant that cost accounting has become an increasingly important tool for managers and accountants alike.

"Cost Management" better prepares students for professional success by bridging the gaps between Knowledge, Skills and Abilities. Many students fail to recognize the assumptions, limitations, behavioral implications and qualitative factors that influence managerial decision-making. The dynamic, new author team focuses on cost accounting methods, techniques and the quality of cost accounting information used for decision-making to deliver a thoroughly modern treatment of cost accounting topics.

Global warming and climate change, increasing human and wildlife population, urbanization, unplanned land use changes have led to diminishing water resources in the drylands resulting to resource based conflicts among water-users. Concerted efforts that include enacting and development of various policies, standards, and strategies by different actors are being pursued to avert an increase of such conflicts. The question of how those most affected could help in finding solutions to the problem remain at the heart of this matter. This book , written to policy makers, development workers and academicians, is a result of a study that assessed the impact of changing land use patterns on water resources in the drylands of Kenya and how indigenous knowledge could help in reducing resource based conflicts. The author identifies and proposes, from the drylands’ native communities, replicable indigenous water resource management knowledge and practices that have the potential of reducing resource based conflicts through improved community resource management practices.

This book seeks to explore and examine the application and use of indigenous knowledge systems (IKS) in the management of drought through a case study of Msinga village communities in the northern parts of KwaZulu-Natal Province, paying specific attention to droughts that have been recorded and that prevail in the area. Government’s policy aimed at mitigating and the effect of drought on communities and its effectiveness is examined as well. The question is whether government policy measures supplement rural communities’ drought management strategies. The findings demonstrated that droughts are endemic in the study area and that drought-management strategies are as intrinsic to local livelihood systems as are seasonal-adjustment strategies. The findings also indicated that communities in Msinga have knowledge of drought management. However, this knowledge contributes very little to the management of drought. The findings also demonstrated that there is poor capacity in government to deal with disasters and this has serious repercussions for poor rural communities in Msinga..
Libraries being memory and the cultural heritage institutions form an important component in the information infrastructure of a country. Any damage or destruction to them results in economic losses and affects the cultural identity and legacy for the future, disrupts the education processes and systems, and sets back knowledge creation. The present study focuses on disaster management issues in Indian libraries. There is very little knowledge about the damage caused by natural and man-made disasters to libraries, nor is it known how they coped with these situations. Have any lessons been learnt from these and are they prepared today to face disasters? Have any disaster management plans been prepared? The present research attempts to answer these questions. The book provides guidelines to libraries on the content and the preparation of a disaster management plan. The narratives of librarians who coped with disasters in past is an eye opener for others to know the difficulties faced by them and how they tried best to cope using standard practices and adopting local solutions. Many of the tips provided are useful for any library to adopt and be prepared for disasters.
