Competition and Entrepreneurship - Israel M. Kirzner
=========================
 Competition and Entrepreneurship defines Israel M. Kirzner's unique contribution to the economics profession. This volume - part of Liberty Fund's Collected Works of Israel M. Kirzner series - provides a thorough critique of contemporary price theory, an essay on the theory of entrepreneurship, and an essay on the theory of competition, offering a new appraisal of quality competition, of selling effort, and of the fundamental weaknesses of contemporary welfare economics.
Pointing out the shortcomings of the traditional microeconomic model, Kirzner offers an alternative and complementary view, which illuminates and enriches the way economists think of the market process.

International Training Course on Building Resilient Communities: Community-Managed Disaster Risk Reduction

Announcement

International Training Course on Building Resilient Communities: Community-Managed Disaster Risk Reduction

16-25 June 2013 in Kathmandu, Nepal

 

Communities around the world, especially in Asia, are facing a serious challenge towards establishing sustained progress due to the changing climate pattern. Farmers and pastoralists in Africa who are experiencing delayed rains are coping to bridge the gaps of food insecurity and adapting new ways to recover for the next season. Increasing frequency of flooding in South Asia and hurricanes in Central America are some of the manifestations of climate variability.

 

Disaster happens when a community with very low capacity cannot cope on their own when a hazard strikes their community. Over the years, disasters have always demonstrated its link to development. Disasters can automatically wipe our years of development efforts. On the one hand, unsustainable development patterns also expose more people and assets to disaster risk.

 

The Community Managed Disaster Risk Reduction (CMDRR) approach builds people's capacities to prevent and mitigate the impact of hazards of communities at risk. This is achieved by enhancing individual survivability and community readiness. Building resilient communities means strengthening the foundation of safety and enhancing disaster risk reduction measures.

 

This course is jointly designed and organized by IIRR and Rural Reconstruction Nepal (RRN) with special focus on South Asian country participants  (i.e. Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Bhutan, Nepal).

INTRODUCTION 

The mobile seminar on Planning and Managing Tourism in Protected Areas is an intensive, 2.5 week seminar (in English) for individuals involved in efforts to use tourism and outdoor recreation in protected areas. The seminar will review how tourism in protected areas can help create public support for conservation, contribute to public health, fund protected area management, and provide economic benefits to local communities and national economies. Ideal participants will be mid-level professional and technical personnel who work for governmental or nongovernmental conservation and tourism organizations, in academia, in the private sector, and in community-based and indigenous tourism and conservation initiatives in or near protected areas.


SEMINAR OVERVIEW
The seminar will begin on the campus of Colorado State University (CSU) in Fort Collins, Colorado, next to the majestic Rocky Mountains, one hour north of Denver, Colorado's capital city. Most of the seminar will be spent in the field visiting protected areas offering a wide range of tourism programs.  These parks and reserves include a wide variety of habitat types and cultural resources and are managed by federal, state, and local governments; NGOs; and private landowners. Highlights will include trips to Rocky Mountain, Wind Cave, Yellowstone, and Grand Teton National Parks, Mount Rushmore National Memorial, and several national forests, monuments, and wildlife refuges plus visits to a western Dude Ranch (agro-tourism) and a variety of other local and regional tourism attractions. A variety of protected area management categories, governance types, and types and levels of tourism activities discussed will provide participants with unparalleled opportunities to learn about tourism planning and management approaches in protected areas and adjacent gateway communities.

Teaching methods will include lectures, discussion sessions, small group exercises, participant presentations, and informal exchanges among participants, faculty and invited speakers.
The workshop will also include a variety of activities to build camaraderie and help participants understand the challenges to sustainable tourism in natural areas and the importance of highly trained personnel. These include a challenge "ropes" course, interpreter-guided hikes, and spending time with concessionaires and outfitters to experience firsthand protected area tourism programs.
