​There has been some degree of reluctance in the past to consider disaster risk management within the mainstream of adaptation to climate variability and climate change. However, there is now wide recognition of the need to incorporate disaster risk management concerns in dealing with such phenomena. There is also a growing awareness of the necessity for a multi-sectoral approach in managing the effects of climate variability and climate change, since this can lead to a significant reduction of risk. This book presents the latest findings from scientific research on climate variation, climate change and their links with disaster risk management. It showcases projects and other initiatives in this field that are being undertaken in both industrialised and developing countries, by universities and scientific institutions, government bodies, national and international agencies, NGOs and other stakeholders. Finally, it discusses current and future challenges, identifying opportunities and highlighting the still unrealised potential for promoting better understanding of the connections between climate variation, climate change and disaster risk management worldwide.

Legal Aspects of Financial Services Regulation and the Concept of a Unified Regulator

That different types of financial services and products continue to spring up in the financial sector of many countries is indicative of the changing landscape of the financial services industry globally. Equally important, as indicators of the evolving trajectory of financial services regulation, are increases in the number of countries where universal banking is practiced and in numbers of parent and subsidiary companies providing different types of financial services and products. This book is written against that background. A central thesis pursued in the book is that until there is a longer track record of experience with unified regulators, it is difficult to come to firm conclusions about the restructuring process of regulators, and the optimal internal structure of such agencies. In addition, the book examines the concept of an independent regulator, showing how this concept, as a corollary to the concept of a unified regulator, could strengthen the regulatory and institutional framework for financial services supervision if accountability were to be part of such a framework.

Currently, it is reported that more than two billion people are affected by water shortages in over 40 countries, with diseases associated with unsafe drinking water and lack of adequate sanitation among the leading causes of death in developing countries. Predictions forecast that by the year 2050, at least one in four people is likely to live in a country affected by chronic or recurring shortages of fresh water. This publication, written by recognised experts in this field, explores the genesis of the debate on the right to water and the links between development issues, water resources and human rights. It focuses on the importance of General Comment No. 15 (issued by the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in 2002) which explicitly recognizes a human right to water; and concludes that an incipient right to water is emerging in international law, supported by several soft law instruments, evolving customary international law and an increasing number of domestic law provisions.

Dam safety is central to public protection and economic security. Aging portfolios of large dams, increasing populations, and rapid urbanization require the development of legal and institutional frameworks for dam safety that can secure water supplies for hydropower generation, improve food security through irrigation, and enhance resilience to floods and droughts. This book provides a systematic review of the legal and institutional frameworks for dam safety in 51 countries with varying economic, political, and cultural circumstances. These case studies inform a range of legal, institutional, technical, and financial options for developing frameworks for sustainable dam safety assurance that apply to a variety of different portfolio and country-specific circumstances.The analysis employs a regulatory mix approach to develop a continuum of alternative options for dam safety assurance that are contingent upon the country context and portfolio characteristics. It informs decision-makers about the merits of the different options and identifies the necessary supporting capacity to assist them in systematically developing interventions to enhance dam safety. By identifying the essential elements and accounting for portfolio characteristics, this tool can help in establishing enhanced regulatory regimes and identifying gaps in existing legal and institutional frameworks.

Recent experience confirms that participation of farmers in managing parts of an irrigation system and collecting water charges usually results in a more efficient use of water. To be effective, farmers in the hydraulic unit would need to organize themselves by establishing a "water users" association. This paper presents a comparative study of the legal framework for these associations in Colombia, India, Mexico, Nepal, the Philippines, and Turkey. Building on the theory that participation of farmers in managing and operating parts of an irrigation system will result in an optimum use of water, the document analyzes in a comparative manner how each of these countries addressed the basic aspects related to the establishment and functioning of such associations. Additional emphasis is placed on the collection of water charges.
