The Australian company Kimberley Environmental Solutions Pty Ltd was formed in June 2006 for the purpose of harvesting the abundant water weed found in the northern waterways of Western Australia, and then turning it into cattle feed There was a serious shortage of cattle feed in the whole of Australia at this time, mainly due to the drought conditions that had existed for several years in the eastern states, and this shortage of feed also affected the north of Western Australia. This book covers all that was learnt during the six years that the company was operational in Kununurra (it being wound up in 2013), and the Case Histories Section looks in detail at the projects that the company was invited to bid for in China and Nigeria. Most of the major waterways in the world appear to have a weed or algae problem that will have to be dealt with if the world is to continue to enjoy clean fresh water. The author of this book and his fellow directors have all come to the conclusion that water weeds and algae are a valuable natural resource that we should find ways of utilizing for the benefit of mankind.

Holding managers to account for the resources they have been allocated is key to improving financial management at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. This need has been recognised by the Department and reflected in a programme to improve its financial management, but the Department's Management Board recognises that establishing a culture of tighter control over its expenditure will take time. This initiative must remain a top priority and managers throughout the organisation will need to produce more reliable estimates of costs to justify their bids for resources and track the cost effectiveness of work done. The budgets agreed by the Management Board at the outset of 2006-07 and 2007-08 exceeded the funds available. In early 2006-07, increased spending to remedy difficulties with the Single Payment Scheme led to a risk of overspending in that year and the Department instigated a review which identified savings of £170 million against its original budget of £3,854 million. During the early part of 2007-08 further commitments above the agreed budget allocations meant the Department was at risk of exceeding its spending limit by £140 million. In July 2007, the Management Board identified savings which partially balanced the budget and continues to work towards a balanced budget for the year end. Effective monitoring by the Management Board and greater integration between the systems for monitoring performance delivery and financial expenditure would help better management of budgets. The NAO recommends that the Management Board set budgets from 2008-09 onwards that balance with the 2007 Comprehensive Spending Review and develops benchmarks to test the rigour of proposed budgets and to provide confirmation that these resource bids accord with the Department's strategic objectives.

Inland Waterway Transportation explores how tools of economic analysis can improve the efficiency of both public and private investment in inland waterway transportation. Originally published in 1969, this study investigates how waterway transportation has been affected by public operating policy, costs and charges for the use of waterways in the United States as well as the impact of relationships central to waterway policy and individual firms such as the effect of the waterway environment on a firm’s efficiency. This title will be of interest to students of Environmental Studies and professionals.

Times have changed for regional economic development. Back in the not-too-far-off good old days, announcements of a new factory setting up in town or the approval granted for a new large apartment block would have been widely accepted and even applauded by communities. Now mostly they are are not. NIMBY has become the standrad cry. Not in my backyard now extends to so many areas beyond nuclear power plants, mines and waste dumps, including to some that at first sight seem just plain puzzling. But this is the 21st Century reality and regional economic development policy and practice must respond with more sophisticated analysis and tools. Setting up a camp to rival the NIMBYs and waging war to win the media battle is a short sighted, unsustainable approach. This book analyses what makes NIMBY tick, surveys current best practice regional economic development and posits a coherent, sustainable approach to the creation of wealth and well-being in communities.

Materials management has become an important activity in both manu facturing and service organizations. Rapid changes in the industrial envi ronment, such as the introduction of automation and Just-In-Time, and demands for increased productivity and quality have increased the need for alI personnel to be concerned with total control of materials. Clearly this trend will continue, and materials management wilI play an increasingly vital role in organizational success, especialIy for operations that are be coming automated. Materials management will be more critical in many service organizations where the materials group has received little attention in the past. This book covers the basic materials management function and provides valuable insights into various other major functions related to it. We believe that each of these-manufacturing, marketing, finance, quaIity assurance, and engineering-is vitalIy involved in materiaIs management, and any coverage of the subject that excludes these functions offers too narrow a perspective. With increasing demand for materials managers, human resource re quirements will be satisfied by individuals trained within the discipline and by personnel who have worked in other fields. The dimensions of materials management have grown so rapidly that many practicing managers are not aware that they are fulfilling material management functions. It is impor tant that alI individuals have the basic knowledge required to perforrn their roles in these organizations.
