Case Study for Stakeholder Engagement in Preparing Investment Plans for the Climate Investment Funds
In 2008 the multilateral development banks (MDBs) and a group of donor countries developed the concept of climate investment funds (CIF) providing support to developing countries to initiate transformational change toward low-carbon and climate-resilient development. The focus of the funding is on investment with the opportunity to blend resources from the CIF, MDBs, govern-ment, and the private sector. The first step in gaining access to funding is the preparation of a countryinvestment plan. The investment plan, developed under the leadership of the government and withsupport from the MDBs, is a multiyear proposal identifying how CIF resources together with cofi-nancing will support the country’s existing development strategies.
Cambodia consultations for the PPCR were carried out in the spirit of CIF and ADB guidanceand had a positive impact on climate change awareness and government leadership in the process.The unanticipated withdrawal of the World Bank from leadership of the process had some negativeconsequences, but ultimately consultations resulted in a strong Strategic Program for ClimateResilience (SPCR), with some innovative components. The consultations revealed some of thelimitations of the mission-based approach, which tended to reinforce the perception that processes were MDB driven. A more strategic approach to communications and continuity of information flows would have enhanced the consultation process. Keep reading..

Technology, depending on how it is used, is often credited with the success or failure of aspects of managing a physician’s practice. Although there is no doubt that technology plays an important role, each process in an office operation – billing, scheduling, handling phone calls, responding to consultations, etc – must be sound. All too often the perception is that technology and processes are mutually exclusive. In order for technology to be utilized at peak performance the underlying process must be designed to match that technology. As part of the move into the world of electronic medical records, a whole new practice management system was recently implemented at Pulmonary Associates. Click here to read more…
RLI is focused on profitable growth and bottom-line results and requires all departments, including internal audit, add value to the organization. For the company’s small audit team, ACL analytics provide broad coverage and significantly reduce the risks associated with manual sampling. The RLI audit group implemented ACL technology and worked closely with ACL’s expert support services to effectively access files, scrub data, develop extracts and analyze results.

When someone suffers a stroke – the leading cause of disability worldwide – immediate action is critical. From the moment symptoms first appear, physicians have only three hours to safely administer tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), the FDA-approved treatment for stroke. As a result, fast assessment and diagnosis by a neurologist can make all the difference in a patient’s chance of recovery.
Challenge: Deliver telestroke video conferencing technology that enables stroke neurologists to conduct one-on-one consultations across a geographically huge service area, to diagnose and assess patients for stroke within a critical three-hour window for treatment… Find out more aboutCase Study for Sutter Health
U.S. approaches to oversight of research and technological products have developed over time in an effort to ensure safety to humans, animals, and the environment and to control use in a social context. In modern times, regulatory and oversight tools have evolved to include diverse approaches such as performance standards, tradable allowances, consultations between government and industry, and pre-market safety and efficacy reviews.
The decision whether to impose an oversight system, the oversight elements, the level of oversight (for example, federal, state, local), the choice of approach (for example, mandatory or voluntary), and its execution can profoundly affect technological development, individual and collective interests, and public confidence in technological products.Oversight is conducted by a range of institutions with various capabilities, cultures, and motives.
