Este trabalho estuda as edificações denominadas Pavilhão e Centros de Exposição, com total da área coberta para exposições superior a 20.000m², na cidade de São Paulo. Inicialmente são apresentados os antecedentes das atividades que precederam as atuais Feiras de Negócios e Exposições Industriais e seu rebatimento no espaço desde a antiguidade clássica, passando pelas feiras medievais e pela revolução industrial na Europa até as Exposições Universais, num passado mais recente. A partir desse levantamento é detalhada a operacionalidade dessa tipologia, seus agentes e as relações entre as suas principais atividades, o local onde se encontram e outros equipamentos urbanos com funções complementares. Em seguida, são analisados os exemplos nesta Capital e em outras cidades, procurando extrair os componentes que confi guram um pavilhão ou centro de exposições. Com essa análise chega-se a um programa geral proposto e à representação gráfi ca do arranjo físico dessas edificações (fl uxograma). Por fim, a partir do estudo da dinâmica das feiras e exposições são identifi cadas características que podem influenciar e/ ou determinar a necessidade e confi guração dos espaços. São então apresentadas as principais conclusões sobre o tema central...

O objetivo desta pesquisa foi o de depreender convenções estéticas matizadas pela produção e circulação de um conjunto de imagens corpóreas de misses. Interponho ao projeto o conceito, por mim elaborado, de síndrome fotográfica de misses - conjunto de sinais e sintomas resultantes dos processos de observações cinestésicos e sinestésicos das candidatas colaboradoras. Reinterpretei as observações e as reincorporei aos ensaios fotográficos depreendidos dos tri/binômios: miss deficiente visual travesti, miss travesti e miss mulher. Iniciei a pesquisa revolvendo bancos de imagens, álbuns de fotografias pessoais, revistas, sites e minha própria participação como fotógrafo documental em alguns desses eventos. Além disso realizei entrevistas com elas para sub-objetivar suas trajetórias de vida materializadas nas imagens aqui presentes. Através do conceito de síndrome fotográfica aproximei a dinâmica do ensaio fotográfico ao textual, ora pela ficcionalidade controlada, ora pela foto-etnografia, tentando não perder de vista o rigor em conceituar as devidas referências bibliográficas sem, entretanto, fixá-las. Um esforço em zelar pela fruição e polissemia entre texto e imagem resultantes da pesquisa. O resultado final sugerido pelo formato de um Novo Testamento...

The Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention prohibits the development, production, and stockpiling of biological weapons agents or delivery devices for anything other than peaceful purposes. A protocol currently in the final stages of negotiation adds verification measures to the convention. One of these measures will be international investigation of disease outbreaks that suggest a violation of the convention, i.e., outbreaks that may be caused by use of biological weapons or release of harmful agents from a facility conducting prohibited work. Adding verification measures to the current Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention will affect the international public health and epidemiology communities; therefore, active involvement of these communities in planning the implementation details of the protocol will be important.

We surveyed cavers who attended the National Speleological Society convention in June 2000. Fifteen percent of respondents did not consider a bat bite a risk for acquiring rabies; only 20% had received preexposure prophylaxis against the disease. An under-appreciation of the risk for rabies from bat bites may explain the preponderance of human rabies viruses caused by variant strains associated with bats in the United States.

The anthrax mailings of 2001 increased public and government awareness to the threat of bio-terrorism. Particularly vulnerable to a bio-terrorist event are large indoor facilities such as convention centers, office buildings, transportation centers, and sports arenas with their high population densities and limited physical security. Under heightened threat levels deploying bio-aerosol sensors inside these facilities provides added protection to the occupants. The challenge is determining the number and placement of sensors needed to guarantee the detection of a release inside a particular building. The methodology proposed here aims to simplify the analysis of contamination transport within buildings and provide first-order sensing requirements for dose dependant sensors in large facilities. A reduced-order model is developed that allows buildings to be subdivided into larger sections while maintaining a higher degree of accuracy than building analysis models with the same level of granularity. The problem is formulated as a network model with the nodes representing possible sensor locations and the path lengths equal to the reduction in dose as a contaminant travels between sensor locations. Techniques borrowed from network theory are then used to determine the minimum cost set of sensors that provides full building coverage. The reduced-order model estimates sensing requirements in hours or days for problems that would take months to analyze with fine grained multi-zone models and that are too large to be considered with computational fluid dynamics. Models of an office building...

Investing in young children is the responsible thing to do. All children deserve a chance to grow into healthy, educated, and competent people, no matter where and when they were born. While parents bear most of the responsibility for raising their children, especially in the early years of life, governments also have an important role during this critical time of human capital accumulation. For example, governments can ensure that all expectant mothers and young children have access to quality health services and nutrition. They can support parents and other caregivers in providing a positive and stimulating environment for children from birth on by promoting parenting information programs, investing in direct services such as home-based visits, funding daycare centers and preschools, or providing financial incentives to access good quality programs for infants and children. This Early Childhood Development (ECD) guide presents lessons and experiences that have been useful in informing the policy debate about ECD interventions and the design of such programs across the world. Whether the user of this guide is at the initial stage of deciding whether to expand an ECD portfolio or already in the program design stage...

Many countries are scaling up their investments in renewable energy. In 2010, electricity production from renewable sources - wind, solar, biomass, biofuels, geothermal, hydropower, and ocean energy accounted for 18 percent of global electricity supply. By early 2011, renewables made up a quarter of all installed power capacity. One of the main obstacles to the scale-up of renewable energy is connecting generating sites to the grid in an efficient manner. Renewable energy places greater demands on the transmission network than do conventional energy sources. First, the richest sites for solar and wind energy is often spread across multiple locations far from consumption centers or existing transmission networks. Second, generation is subject to variability in climate conditions (such as wind speed and solar radiation). This note focuses on the transmission implications of the dispersion of renewable energy sources, rather than on the implications of variability. In some sub regions of the United States and countries in Europe that are pursuing renewable energy options, the requirements for investment in transmission already approved by regulators (or forecasted by transmission companies) are double or quadruple recent investment trends. In Brazil the investment needs for renewable energy in some regions surpass the asset value of the distribution utilities closest to the renewable sites.

Bhutan has recently made significant progress in sustaining economic growth and reducing poverty. In 2012, average per capita household income was somewhat under USD 2,400/year (Living Standards Measurement Surveys 2012). Growth has averaged around 9 percent per annum over the past decade and is expected to be on the order of 8 percent per annum over the next five years. According to the 2012 Bhutan Poverty Analysis, 12 percent of the population are what is known as consumption poor , half the number as compared to 2007. Furthermore, extreme poverty defined as less than $1.25/day in PPP terms has fallen to only 2 percent of the total population. Bhutan has virtually eliminated extreme poverty within the living memory of one generation. Bhutan s population remains rural to a significant extent. According to a 2005 population census, 69 percent of the population lived in rural areas. And there remain significant income differences between urban and rural areas; average per capita household income in rural areas is estimated to be 28...

Promoting the transfer of environmentally sound technologies (ESTs) and best practices to developing and transition countries is a key priority for all countries that seek to mitigate climate change impacts and build resilience. The Global Environment Facility (GEF) is one of the entities entrusted to provide financial resources to assist developing and transition countries in implementing the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The GEF launched the Poznan Strategic Program on Technology Transfer in 2008. This program supports the following activities: 1) conduct technology needs assessments; 2) support pilot priority technology projects linked to technology needs assessments; and 3) disseminate GEF experience and successfully demonstrated ESTs. The Long-Term Program on Technology Transfer seeks to scale up technology transfer activities supported under the original Poznan Program. This long-term program includes the following elements: (i) support for climate technology centers and a climate technology network; (ii) piloting priority technology projects to foster innovation and investments; (iii) public-private partnership for technology transfer; (iv) technology needs assessments; and (v) GEF as a catalytic supporting institution for technology transfer. This document provides an overview of the GEF's approach on promoting technology transfer...

This study was undertaken by the World Bank in its initiative to support Brazil's integrated effort towards reducing national and global emissions of greenhouse gases while promoting long term development. The study builds on the best available knowledge and to this effect the study team undertook a broad consultative process and surveyed the copious literature available to identify the need for incremental efforts and centers of excellences. The overall aim of this study was to support Brazil's efforts to identify opportunities to reduce its emissions in ways that foster economic development. The primary objective was to provide the Brazilian government the technical inputs needed to assess the potential and conditions for low-carbon development in key emitting sectors. The Brazil low carbon study aims to support Brazil's continued efforts to foster development while reducing GHG emissions. The World Bank Group has always been committed to supporting growth in developing countries, and in October 2008, it adopted a Strategic Framework on Climate Change and Development (SFCCD) to integrate climate change into the development agenda without compromising growth and poverty reduction efforts. Within the context of the SFCCD...

This study provides the basis for constructing a political economy of tobacco control in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). The authors first undertook a literature review of tobacco control in LMICs to explore the forces that oppose the adoption, implementation, and enforcement of tobacco control strategies. The authors then used the sources collected to conduct a stakeholder analysis, as a first step in constructing a political economy of tobacco control in LMICs. The authors focused primarily at the international level because of the dominant role of transnational tobacco companies (TTCs). The author's review of the literature suggests four broad conclusions. First, a political economy approach has been applied only rarely as a formal analytical methodology in the literature on the tobacco control in LMICs. Second, even when the term "political economy" was used in a document, the paper typically did not explicitly conduct this kind of analysis and did not directly consider political strategies for advancing tobacco control. Third...

The objective of this economic sector work (ESW) is to address these gaps by piloting a methodology capable of quickly and cost-effectively introducing into adaptation planning processes an appreciation of the significance of climate change impacts for poor people in informal urban settlements. Specifically in the two case study sites (Mombasa in Kenya and Esteli in Nicaragua) sought to: a) make visible climate change impacts of various kinds on poor people; b) illustrate what poor households, small businesses and groups in communities are doing to cope with such climate change impacts (experienced as increasingly variable and capricious weather patterns); and c) identify how policy and institutional systems can best build on local realities to develop pro-poor urban climate change adaptation actions, particularly relating to resilience. The report introduces an asset-based framework to analyze the vulnerability of urban poor people to severe weather events whose frequency or intensity climate change may be increasing...

Climate change is widely acknowledged as foremost among the formidable challenges facing the international community in the 21st century. It poses challenges to fundamental elements of our understanding of appropriate goals for social and economic policy, such as the connection of prosperity, growth, equity, and sustainable development. This volume seeks to establish an agenda for research and action built on an enhanced understanding of the relationship between climate change and the key social dimensions of vulnerability, social justice, and equity. The volume is organized as follows. This introductory chapter first sets the scene by framing climate change as an issue of social justice at multiple levels, and by highlighting equity and vulnerability as the central organizing themes of an agenda on the social dimensions of climate change. Chapter two leads off with a review of existing theories and frameworks for understanding vulnerability, drawing out implications for pro-poor climate policy. Understanding the multilayered causal structure of vulnerability then can assist in identifying entry points for pro-poor climate policy at multiple levels. Building on such analytical approaches...

Just as development means less poverty or better access to justice, it also means fewer gaps in wellbeing between males and females. Women's empowerment and gender equality are development objectives in their own right, as embodied in the Millennium Development Goals. It is espoused as well in the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), ratified by the Philippines in 1981; the convention established a comprehensive framework for the advancement of women and has been mainstreamed in the Magna Carta of Women, RA 9710. Gender equality is smart economics: it can enhance economic efficiency and improve other development outcomes in three ways: first, removing barriers that prevent women from having the same access as men to education, economic opportunities, and productive inputs can generate broad productivity gains. Second, improving women's absolute and relative status contributes too many other development outcomes, including those for their children. Third, leveling the playing field...

This study first outlines three major factors that limit the assessments of convention centers: high uncertainty in the convention industry, complex institutional structures and operational priorities, and plethora of external factors in the venue decision process that are beyond the control of convention centers. This study then compares the performance of San Jose McEnery Convention Center (SJMCC) with the industry average and other comparable facilities using an assessment framework that comprises four elements: financial performance, economic impact, productivity, and service quality. This study further proposes various indicators for these four assessment elements, including the Productivity and External Attractiveness Matrix (PEAM). This analysis concludes that SJMCC's current performance is moderate, even considering various external constraints of its operations. In addition, this analysis also suggests that SJMCC could further improve its current facility occupancy rate, diversify its client base, and enhance its service qualities and varieties as alternative competition strategies to facility expansions.

In the past, most of the meetings and conventions were held in convention centers in the luxury hotels in Bangkok because Thailand had no independent convention centers or facilities that offered the same range of services as the hotels. The Thai government decided to construct a convention center named "The Queen Sirikit National Convention Center" (QSNCC) when Thailand got approval from the World Bank committees in 1989 to be the host in holding the World Bank and the International Mutual Fund meeting in October, 1991. The purpose of the QSNCC is currently to encourage the growth of the meetings and convention industry in Thailand. The QSNCC named after Her Majesty the Queen of Thailand, is a fitting monument to celebrate her auspicious 60th birthday which falls on August 12, 1992. After considering the services and facilities of the QSNCC and the competitors which are the Bangkok Convention Center owned and located in the Central Plaza Hotel and the Grand Ballroom owned and located in the Shangri - La Hotel, the problems of the QSNCC are 1 . Size and facilities are limited to the World Bank committee. 2. Ceiling height in building C and D is too low to hold an exhibition. 3. Catering service is limited to less than 1,000 participants. 4. Too few breakout sessions are available. 5. Convention service managers are not provided. 6. Price is high when compared to competitors. 7. No hotel space is available. 8. Terms of management contract is too short. Therefore...
