Whilst managing biodiversity different strategies must be used to ensure the appropriate outcome is made. Usually a balance must be made between economic sustenance and environmental cost. This is because people use biological resources. NGO’s, IGO’s and Governments such as WWF and the Wet Tropics Management Authority and other organisations are made to ensure the protection of wildlife, rehabilitate areas which have been severely degraded due to human activity such as climate change and promote sustainable business and environmental education. Biosphere reserves is a management strategy similar to the 1960’s approach of total protection in which whole areas of biological significance are fenced off from the public. However Biosphere reserves take a wider approach to what must be sustained whilst protecting the ecology. Economic development focussed on local people is integrated within biodiversity conservation by using strategies such as ecotourism, tolerant forest management and extractive research. The Wet Tropics Management Authority, Douglas Shire Council and the Rainforest Cooperative Research Council are all organisations taking steps to protect and restore the Daintree Tropical Rainforest biodiversity in north eastern Australia. The Douglas Shire Council are gradually trying to reduce thehuman population in Daintree by rejecting plans to build a bridge across to mainland Australia and also increase costs of Ferries across to the island. This has not been successful at decreasing the number of tourists which has meant that over 500,000 people visit the rainforest every year. Some of which partake in activities which are harmful to the environment such as fishing, 4-wheel drive tours and reef diving which leads to disturbance and destruction of habitats for many valuable endemic species. However the increased cost of accessing the wildlife reserve has meant that…...

The red blood cells are usually removed over an extended period of time. The withdrawn blood is then refrigerated for preservation and finally......

Advantages and Disadvantages of Java V.Net

...Advantages and Disadvantages of Java v. .NET University of Phoenix CSS/422 .NET and Java There is no shortage of definitions for software architecture but in a general sense it is the blueprint for a system, its properties and the relationships among all of the elements. It specifies all of the actions to be taken by the design and implementations teams. There are various differences between .NET and Java Technology so there are certainly advantages and disadvantages to using one or the other as software architecture. The choice, however, depends on the scope of the project and the skill of the design team. Both .NET and Java have platforms that offer a good solid foundation for project design. Java Technology is the choice of many developers because of its work-saving features and ease of use. “.NET and web services are tightly integrated and it is easier to create a basic web service in .NET” (Ranck, 2002). Advantages A major advantage of .NET is that it allows for the use of multiple languages and horizontal scalability. This feature makes it an ideal choice by developers for software architecture if they want to write programs in C++, Java or Virtual Basic because it provides a unified environment in which to work. It is easily developed and supported. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for Java which is limited to use with the Java programming language only. Another advantage of .NET is that the interface is......

As a result, managers and the employees will work more enthusiastically throughout the period of achieving that objective.

Education and the curriculum have an important role to play in realising these aims. in 1997 we introduced outcomes-based education to overcome the curricular divisions of the past, but the experience of implementation prompted a review in 2000.

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Studying Overseas

...TOPIC: THE ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF STUDYING OVERSEAS We mostly do wish to improve our knowledge for a better life by the way of studying abroad. And in most case, we choose to study in developed countries to get a progressive education. The reality is that there are more and more young people choose to study abroad rather than in local universities. In my opinion, studying overseas will bring to us both the advantages and disadvantages. First of all, when studying abroad we have a very good opportunity to improve our language. Since we live with local people surrounding, we practice with native speaker in every aspect of life. The environment there force us have to use English day by day. Therefore, naturally we have chance to practice and improve our language. Secondly, when we live in a new environment, it offers chance for us to broaden our mind. We experience the culture, custom, lifestyles and self-survive ability as well. People live in their own way and they face with problem in positive ways. We interact with different people come from different culture. Especially, you may make friends with many kinds of people from different countries.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Organisational Change

...Advantages and disadvantages of organisational change Change Might Not Equal Progress Many companies emphasize a culture of continuous improvement. While never being satisfied with the status quo can drive excellence in your organization, there is some wisdom in the old adage, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Mistaking change for progress is similar to the common problem of mistaking activity for productivity. Every organization can be improved, no matter how well it is performing, but a manager should always ask the question, "How is this proposed change going to improve my organization's ability to achieve our key goals?" Cost-to-Benefit Ratio Change is never free. Changing the oil in your car takes time and materials, which cost money. Changing the phone system in your building costs time, money and training. Every change also has opportunity cost; spending your equipment budget on new computers means you have to wait to upgrade the phones. And there are intangible costs such as morale and customer satisfaction during the adjustment period. Determine whether the cost of a change is outweighed by the benefit that change will create. Internal Resistance According to an article by organizational change expert Garrison Wynn, the top two reasons people resist change are lack of knowledge about coming changes and fear of the unknown. You can expect some level of resistance to any change, no matter how small or how much benefit it might promise. The key tools for......

Advantages and Disadvantages of Corruption

...Table of Contents Definition of Corruption 1 Advantages and disadvantages of corruption 2 Poverty 2 The worst access to education and health services 2 An additional burden for investors 2 At the same time, there are positive consequences of corruption. 3 Reference 4 Definition of Corruption Corruption is difficult to determine. The most common definition of corruption is the abuse of official position with an ax to grind. Also on the basis of anti-corruption law in Estonia corrupt practices is the use of official position for personal gain, by making unreasonable or unlawful decision or action, or not making legitimate decisions or actions. “Corruption has many faces. It may be in the form of money or of providing services in order to gain advantages such as favourable treatment, special protection, extra services, or reduced delays”. (NHO) Problem with this definition is that it is not appropriate for all cultures and societies, for example, those where there is no difference between private and public sector. Also, what is considered as corruption in one society may not be so in another society. Nevertheless, in every society it can be actions that are condemned for cultural reasons, and expectations that are imposed on perpetrators of public functions. Ambiguity is the fact that the phenomenon of corruption has been seen mainly in public sector. Such an understanding of corruption is limited for two reasons. First, the "offer" of corruption, as......

Using Named Examples Assess the Advantages and Disadvantages of Contrasting Ways of Measuring Development

...changed or made better in an attempt to improve the overall environment. GDP is an indicator of development used by many people. The advantages of using GDP are that it gives one single clear figure, which is easily presentable. The fact it is a single figure also makes is very easily comparable when measuring countries against each other. Disadvantages of using GDP as a measure of development include, the fact that GDP does not take disparity in incomes between the rich and poor into account, therefore you could have the richest 1% of a population earning 99% of the wealth and GDP would not show this. GDP does not measure the sustainability of growth, for example, a country may achieve a temporarily high GDP by over-exploiting natural resources or by misallocating investment. HDI is another indicator of development. There is widespread use of HDI to compare development levels and it does reveal clear global patterns. Advantages are things such as, it does not solely concentrate on economic development, and takes into consideration that there are other, more social, ways to measure human development. It shows that an increase in education and health shows can see improvement in a countries infrastructure. The success of government policy can also be seen because if education and health levels are high the policies are likely to be working.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Franchising

...understandable issue. However we can identify and summarize the possible responses putting in evidence all economic advantages for the franchisor. In this instance, he can extend and increase his units thanks to the investment risk assumed by other parties in the host country. One of the main financial benefits includes the fact that the franchisor gains from additional incomes such as franchisees fees and on-going royalties. This increase of capital improves profits and return on investments. McDonalds, for instance, sell their name for $1,800,000 a piece. This is huge for the franchisor because for every new McDonalds they open they make a profit from the name and products they sell to the franchisee and also have a stake in the profits that the franchisees make (AssociatedContent, 2010). Another financial benefit is the reduced operating, distribution and 1 advertising costs. This, in turn, will mean more funds will be allocated for research and development. The key operational benefit is the ability for the franchisor to have a far smaller centralized headquarter, compared to having to owning many business locations and developing then into franchisees. Moreover, the management can ensure conformity across the company, through the use of standardized procedures achieving consistent outcomes, greater productivity levels and better quality results. Another advantage is the ability to instigate effective quality control. Particularly where the franchise agreement is......

The company should also consider the advantages and disadvantages of outsourcing. The advantages are the following: reduction in critical resources, provides ability to focus on core business, yields cost savings, provides flexibility, reduction overhead costs, etc. The disadvantages are as follows: loss of managerial control, hidden costs, threat to security and confidentiality, quality problems, tied to financial well-being of another company and bad publicity and ill-will. When you think of outsourcing do you think of a call center in India or jobs be taken away from Americans and sent overseas? Well, since the Industrial Revolution, companies have wrestled with how they can take advantage of their competitive advantage to increase their profits. The standard for majority of the 20th century was a large integrated company that can “own, manage, and directly......
