Global Challenges in Water Governance: Environments, Economies, Societies

Global Challenges in Water Governance: Environments, Economies, Societies By Prof. Jeremy J. Schmidt, Dr. Nathanial Matthews
English | PDF | 2017 | 130 Pages | ISBN : 3319615025 | 1.24 MB

This book presents a historically situated explanation of the rise of global water governance and the contemporary challenges that global water governance seeks to address. It is particularly concerned with connecting what are often technical issues in water management with the social and political structures that affect how technical and scientific advice affects decisions. Schmidt and Matthews are careful to avoid the pitfalls of setting up opposing binaries, such as ‘nature versus culture’ or ‘private versus public’, thereby allowing readers to understand how contests over water governance have been shaped over time and why they will continue to be so.

Enterprise Resource Planning, Corporate Governance and Internal Auditing: An Institutional Perspective By Hany Elbardan, Ahmed O. Kholeif
English | PDF | 2017 | 446 Pages | ISBN : 3319549898 | 3.9 MB

This book investigates how corporate governance is directing the internal audit function (IAF) adaptation as a response to enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. To date, there is insufficient knowledge about the adaptations of the IAF, which are required if it is to maintain its essential role as a governance mechanism. This book extends the reader’s knowledge by exploring and theorising the adaptation of the IAF after ERP introduction and points towards future trends.
