Microbes, including fungi, are always adapting to different environmental conditions and phytopathologists are continually faced with the management of new diseases and the resurgence of old ones. Amidst growing concerns about the environment and food security, the development of management strategies that minimize crop losses and promote sustainable agriculture is increasingly important.

This volume explores intergenerational practices and their impact on social sustainability. It links sustainability concepts from various contexts with intergenerational related dimensions and applies them to programmatic efforts to address different social problems such as underperforming educational and work-related systems, failing support systems for dependent or vulnerable populations and community renewal and regeneration efforts. To this end the core argument is to present issues related to age, aging, and generations not only as challenges or even problems but as sources for the development of innovative responses to some tenacious societal issues and for paving pathways to facilitate improved quality of live for all generations.
For societies to be sustainable all generations must coexist at any given time and across time (non-contemporary generations). Hence, the ultimate vision presented here is one of a sustainable intergenerational way of life as both a conceptual tool and as a call for action. Intergenerational pathways are introduced as compelling and effective strategies for improving health and well-being across the lifespan, strengthening families, improving under-performing educational and work-related systems, and helping to build more cohesive, caring communities.
Reviewing some of the historical factors and developments influencing intergenerational studies, as well as presenting regional case studies and comparative research of various models, approaches and applications, this book intends to present successful international intergenerational models that may be applied to everyday multigenerational practices in institutions such as learning, education, family life, housing, healthcare, employment and community development.
The intergenerational programs and practices highlighted in this accessible resource for students, academics and practitioners set a positive tone and an empowering direction for how modern societies can navigate and find opportunity amidst challenging demographic and social changes.
Trade, Environment and Sustainable Development explores the linkages between the objectives of liberalised international trade, protection of the environment and sustainable development. It is an anthology of essays by leading experts, key government officials and political leaders from the South Asian region, supported by officials of the OECD, UNCTAD and non-governmental organisations. Trade, Environment and Sustainable Development outlines the concerns of the developing nations of the South Asian region about the impacts on their trade and development from the environmental policies of the North. A range of country case and sector studies are presented, along with analysis of key regional issues.
The book illustrates how the treatment of complexity in analytical frameworks shapes economic studies. It explores the ways economists make sense of our economic environment and where their differences in interpretations of economic issues and policy proposals are rooted. Schwardt examines developments in economies and the role of the public sector over the last few centuries. Taking a theoretical approach and addressing different analytical frameworks, a basic distinction is introduced between top-down approaches, where assumptions about the economic environment are formulated at the outset; and bottom-up approaches, where an economic environment emerges from the interactions of the individual agents.Â
