Handbook on constructing composite indicators : methodology and user guide by Michela Nardo( )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook is a guide for constructing and using composite indicators for policy makers, academics, the media and other interested parties. While there are several types of composite indicators, this handbook is concerned with those which compare and rank country performance in areas such as industrial competitiveness, sustainable development, globalization and innovation. The handbook aims to contribute to a better understanding of the complexity of composite indicators and to an improvement of the techniques currently used to build them. In particular, it contains a set of technical guidelines that can help constructors of composite indicators to improve the quality of their outputs.--Publisher's description

15 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an internationally comparable set of indicators on the educational provision for students with disabilities, learning difficulties and disadvantages (SENDDD). It covers the number of students concerned, their learning environment (special schools, special classes and regular classes) and level of education (pre-primary, compulsory and upper secondary education). It also discusses policy implications vis-á-vis special education needs and offers an analysis of the participation and performance of students with special education needs in the 2006 round of the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA).--Publisher's description
Towards an urban atlas : assessment of spatial data on 25 European cities and urban areas by European Environment Agency( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present report describes the work developed by the Murbandy/Moland project (Monitoring Urban Dynamics/Monitoring Land Use Changes). The aim of the report is to disseminate the first results of this research project dedicated to measure and assess urban dynamics through the creation of land use databases for 25 cities and urban areas within Europe. These databases combine environmental, economic and social data in order to better understand the characteristics and dynamics of urban growth and related land use changes, such as transport and energy infrastructures and changes in agricultural and natural areas. The project results show the spatial evolution of a selected set of urban areas with the aim of proposing a methodology for a strategic monitoring of the impact of urban development on the environment
Assessing the effects of ICT in education : indicators, criteria and benchmarks for international comparisons by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the fact that education systems have been heavily investing in technology since the early 1980s, international indicators on technology uptake and use in education are missing. This book aims to provide a basis for the design of frameworks, the identification of indicators and existing data sources, as well as gaps in areas needing further research. The contributions stem from an international expert meeting in April 2009 organised by the Centre for Research on Lifelong Learning, in co-operation with OECD (CERI), on benchmarking technology use and effects in education. The contributions clearly demonstrate the need to develop a consensus around approaches, indicators and methodologies. The book is organised around four blocks: contexts of ICT impact assessment in education, state-of-the-art ICT impact assessment, conceptual frameworks and case studies

PV status report 2008 : research, solar cell production and market implementation of photovoltaics by Arnulf Jäger-Waldau( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Photovoltaics is a solar power technology to generate Electricity using semiconductor devices, known as solar cells. A number of solar cells form a solar "Module" or "Panel", which can then be combined to solar systems, ranging from a few Watts of electricity output to multi Megawatt power stations. The unique format of the Photovoltaic Status Report is to combine international up-to-date information about Research Activities with Manufacturing and Market Implementation data of Photovoltaics. These data are collected on a regular basis from public and commercial studies and cross-checked with personal communications. Regular fact-finding missions with company visits, as well as meetings with officials from funding organisations and policy makers, complete the picture. Growth in the solar Photovoltaic sector has been robust. Yearly growth rates over the last five years were on average more than 40%, thus making Photovoltaics one of the fastest growing industries at present. Business analysts predict that the market volume will increase to € 40 billion in 2010 and expect rising profit margins and lower prices for consumers at the same time. The PV Status Report provides comprehensive and relevant information on this dynamic sector for the public interested, as well as decision- makers in policy and industry."--Editor
Environment and health by European Environment Agency( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public concerns, evidence from research and increasing scientific knowledge are all driving widespread discussions on environment and health problems. The issue of environment and health is characterised by multi-causality with different strengths of association. This means that the links between exposures and their health consequences depend on the environmental pollutants and diseases being considered, but are also influenced by factors such as genetic constitution, age, nutrition and lifestyle, and socioeconomic factors such as poverty and level of education

Global forest land-use change, 1990-2005 by Erik J Lindquist( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report presents the key findings on forest land use and land-use change between 1990 and 2005 from FAO's 2010 Global Forest Resources Assessment Remote Sensing Survey. It is the first report of its kind to present systematic estimates of global forest land use and change. The ambitious goal of the Remote Sensing Survey was to use remote sensing data to obtain globally consistent estimates of forest area and changes in tree cover and forest land use between 1990 and 2005. This report is the result of many years of planning and three years of detailed work by staff at FAO and the European Commission Joint Research Centre, with inputs from technical experts from more than 100 countries. Many of these contributors now constitute a valuable global network of forest remote sensing and land-use expertise."--Publisher's description
Remote sensing of the European seas by Vittorio Barale( )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The enclosed and marginal seas surrounding the European continent exhibit a wide spectrum of environmental traits, ranging from sub-polar to sub-tropical climates, from shallow continental shelves to deep oceanic basins, from pristine marine reserves to regions impacted by countless economic and recreational activities. Understanding the inner workings of these seas - aiming to reconcile the conflicting needs of protecting their ecological balance and exploiting their natural resources - requires adequate observation systems, integrating both in situ and remote sensing techniques. This volume reviews the current potential of Earth Observations, while devoting particular attention to applications dealing with the issues, peculiarities and special challenges posed by the European Seas. The assessment of surface parameters by means of passive techniques - which measure reflected visible and near-infrared sunlight, or surface emissions in the thermal infrared or microwave spectral regions - is addressed. Active techniques - which use transmitted impulses of visible or microwave radiation, for a subsequent evaluation of the signal returned by the water surface - are covered as well. An in-depth analysis of the specific merits and drawbacks of each spectral region, and of both passive and active techniques, provides clues to help compose the unique mosaic of dynamical and bio-geo-chemical features of the European Seas. Audience: Scientists and researchers working in the field of Earth and Marine Science. Lecturers and tutors, as well as (graduate) students, in the same field. Academic Libraries
