  • Building Strategic University-Industry Partnerships and Sustainable
           Growth: The Lebanese Experience

    • Abstract: The relationship between academia and industry is old. However, a twist is necessary to move from the traditional exchange of funding for research to the creation of long-term strategic partnerships of mutual benefit. The purpose of this study is to explore the effort made in Lebanon to forge the industry-academia link and to highlight the challenges faced. The researcher relied on both secondary and primary data. A review of the literature is made to set the theoretical framework regarding the need for creating strategic partnerships between academia and industry and its impact on sustainable economic growth. The researcher distinguished strategic partnership from the conventional exchange of research for funding approach. Moreover, she described the lessons learned from international experiences. Primary data are collected about Lebanon through interviewing key actors both in the industry and in academia. The study revealed that Lebanon realized several years ago the need to link academia to industry, several actors took measures to facilitate the collaboration. However, some measures did not reach their full potential yet due to some challenges. The author suggests few recommendations to overcome these challenges and strengthen the academia-industry collaboration.

  • The Influence of Gender and Ethnicity on Young Adults’ Participation in
           Financial Education Programme

    • Abstract: A major problem encountered by educationalists, community leaders and policy makers is to transfer financial literacy and consumer education successfully to their community. Delivering of financial education for youth of a country is one possible intervention to improve the financial capabilities of a population. Therefore, for an effective training we have to identify their financial needs. Further they need guidance and access for financial knowledge and money management tools. Therefore, the objectives of this study are to identify the training needs of youth by gender and ethnicity about money management and to determine their interest towards it. The sample was comprised of 220 secondary school students from five schools in Greater Klang Valley/Kuala Lumpur with 112 females and 108 males and the data collection was done using self-administered questionnaire. The results shown that about one third of female youths have preferred to participate on financial literacy programs than male youths (21.5%). In addition, most of the Malay respondents said that they need more information to take efficient decisions on saving, borrowing and insurance, followed by Indians (64%) and Chinese (61.5%). The findings of this study would be used to the development of financial empowerment program of youth in Malaysia in order to enhance their financial literacy.

  • Redefining the New Public Management and Effects of Indicators:
           Sustainable Healthcare Mobility

    • Abstract: New Public Management has changed the way we perceive and at the same time govern public health companies. The applied method is quantitative subjective, the theory of New Public Management is redefined. The carried-out elaboration, after having identified the variables considered and the possible mathematical relationship between variables (for example a synthetic index of mobility), defines the relationship between them through linear regression and multivariate statistical analysis. The choice of mobility for acute performance in the ordinary regime between regions in Italy is used as a case study. The challenge of the new millennium is the identification of non-economic indicators useful to support the traditional economic indicators that are not always representative of the real welfare of the population in a modern redefinition of New Public Management approach.

  • Inter-Stakeholders Communication in the Implementation of Village Fund
           Programs: An Experience in Gorontalo Province, Indonesia

    • Abstract: This study analyzed the patterns and models of communication that occur among stakeholders in the implementation of village fund programs; communication barriers that occur; and the implementation of the village fund programs itself with the communication patterns and obstacles that occurs. Data collection was done through non-participatory observation, in-depth interviews, focused group discussion, and literature review. The results showed that stakeholders in the implementation of village fund programs carry out formal and non-formal communication patterns. The communication model found was both linear and convergent models. The communication barriers could occur in communication from top to bottom, the bottom up, horizontally, and diagonally. There are various types of communication barriers that occur in implementing village funds, namely: personal, cultural, physical, and environmental barriers. The implementation of village funds requires the village community to act as the subject of development, thus requiring the participation of all village communities, starting from the stages of planning, implementation, monitoring, to preservation.

  • Sustainable Supply Chain Management and Organizational Performance: The
           Intermediary Role of Competitive Advantage

    • Abstract: Sustainability issues have been on the rise due to negative impacts of organizational practices on the environment. The logistics sector has been known as a major contributor in polluting and consuming enormous amount of resources. This study therefore aims to provide insight into how sustainable supply chain management (SSCM) influences performance of organizations operating in the logistics sector. This study went further to focus on the intermediary function of competitive advantage in the SSCM and organizational performance relationship. Questionnaires were distributed to solicit information from 190 logistics managers. Data were analysed using partial least square method of structural equation modelling. Analysis of the data indicates that SSCM significantly and positively influence competitive advantage and organizational performance. In addition, competitive advantage also proved to significantly influence organizational performance. Competitive advantage indirectly has a significant impact on the SSCM and organizational performance relationship. The findings of the study provide key information to managers and academics in understanding the essence of integrating sustainability in supply chain management (SCM) and how the integration influences organizational performance in the current business and industrial setting.

  • Sustainable CSR in Global Supply Chains

    • Abstract: Multinational firms face many challenges in extending sustainability practices to their global supply chains. Establishing standards for environmental practices and working conditions for suppliers through codes of conduct, and then monitoring their performance with audits, is the common method used by MNEs. However, this approach has proven deficient in many cases as the suppliers are often not capable or unwilling to make the changes necessary to assure long-term sustainability of their operations. Audits often are insufficient in uncovering practices that do not meet the codes of conduct, and in any case, do not usually reveal if the firm is on a path to continue to improve their sustainability practices. Drawing upon the experiences of firms that have implemented productivity and quality improvement programs in their global supply chains, some implications for how to implement successful sustainability programs can be found. The challenges that MNEs and their suppliers must overcome to achieve this are discussed and suggestions made on how to achieve real sustainability in global supply chains.

  • Land Use Change and Urban Ecosystem Services: A Case Study of Urban
           Wetlands in a Rapidly Sprawling City in the Highlands of Chiapas, Mexico

    • Abstract: Urban wetlands provide a wide range of ecosystem services that are important for human-well-being. Despite their social and environmental importance, the degradation of urban wetlands continues mainly due to land use changes induced by rapid urbanization. Estimating the impact of these changes on ecosystem services is crucial to support the decision-making process of city planners at different levels. In this study, the spatial extents of the urban wetlands of San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico were determined for the years 2001 and 2018 in order to relate the spatial changes between these years with the provision and economic value of ecosystem services. Google Earth and SPOT imagery were used to evaluate land use/land cover changes while international coefficients were used to assess the value of the ecosystem services by category. Findings reveal a 7.3% decrease in the urban wetland area and a 12.5% increase of urban areas during the study period. The ecosystem service valuation shows that the total value flow decreased around $5 million (2007 USD) during the 17-year period, mainly due to decreases in the potential for regulating and cultural services. The use of freely available land use/land cover data together with global ecosystem service estimates reduce the cost of ground data collection and provides quick and reliable information that could help decision makers with land use planning in the context of data-scarce regions.

  • The Role of Sustainability for Enhancing Third-Party Logistics Management

    • Abstract: Technological development and globalization made the supply chain more complex in today’s business environment. In competitive market conditions, shippers tend to outsource most of their logistical activities to Third-Party Logistics (3PL) service providers. These activities have drawn attention of decision makers regarding sustainability concerns. This study examines sustainability initiatives which have been implemented particularly for the 3PL functions namely; transportation, warehousing and packaging services and their influence on performances. Empirical data have been collected through a worldwide online survey which has been sent to industrial experts working in logistics and supply chain management fields. The results were analyzed through the Structural Equation Modelling (SEM). The analysis indicated that, the 3PL functions significantly affect environmental, economic, social and operational performance, except packaging which had no significant impact on economic, operational and social performance, in addition to transportation which had no significant impact on social performance. Regarding the performance outcome and its impact on logistics efficiency, logistics effectiveness and competitiveness, empirical results indicated that there is no significant impact between the variables except, social performance which had a significant impact on logistics efficiency and competitiveness, operational performance which had a significant impact on logistics efficiency, logistics effectiveness and competitiveness. The proposed model and hypotheses developed give further understanding regarding 3PL industries thereby help decision makers in solving the problems related to 3PL sustainability initiatives.

  • Mangrove Spatial Distribution in the Indian Sundarbans: Predicting
           Salinity-Induced Migration in a Changing Climate

    • Abstract: This study contributes to understanding the physical and economic impacts of progressive, climate-driven aquatic salinization on the spatial distribution of mangrove species in the Indian Sundarbans, which accounts for about two-fifths of the 10,200 km2 tidal-wetland forest delta. To estimate future mangrove distribution, a five-step analysis was undertaken, using high-resolution spatial assessments. A current (2015) basemap and overlays of salinity tolerance for major mangrove species and their assemblages and projected location-specific aquatic salinity for 2050 were used to predict salinity-induced migration. The results show gain-and-loss patterns, with salt-tolerant species predominating at the expense of freshwater species. These changes are likely to reduce the flow of ecosystem services, adversely affecting the livelihood options of poor people in adjacent areas. Effective management will require establishing baseline data for monitoring system changes over time, protocols for maintaining species health, and support for mangrove regeneration and restoration. Resources should also be directed to alternative livelihoods for mangrove-dependent households. The study recommends an integrated policy approach, focused on rising salinity, changes in mangrove dynamics, and the welfare of mangrove-dependent communities.

  • The Necessary Paradigm Shift in Sustainable Business Practice Part 2:
           Beyond the Triple Bottom Line

    • Abstract: A form of “groupthink” has emerged over the last 25 years on Business Sustainable Development (SD) reporting with the Triple Bottom Line approach (TBL) being adopted wholesale by industry and government. This paper reviews the original definition (Our Common Future, 1987) and the true meaning, which has been lost over the last quarter of a century, is established. SD is essentially a process/activity that has permanence; which has a way of meeting needs and is resource availability dependent with no trade-off. The paper goes on to summarise how the adoption of this principle has been easily integrated into the accepted International Standards Organisation’s (ISO) style Environmental Management System (EMS) and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) procedures, such that Companies can develop an alternative strategic plan B in parallel to their TBL reporting.

  • The Necessary Paradigm Shift in Sustainable Business Practice Part 1: The

    • Abstract: The historical prevailing paradigms or perceptions are implicit or explicit beliefs that mould our behaviour. Business takes these on in the same way as society. It is not surprising therefore that Management has behaved as if there was infinite resource availability and waste assimilation capacity in nature. Consequently, the loose relationship between economics and the environment, where business accepted one-to-one pollution control strategy supported by legislative controls is a direct consequence of this historical legacy. This dominates industrial thinking in relation to defining good sustainable business practice. This paper reviews the perceptions that have arisen from these historical paradigms, “legacies of the past”, giving a reminder of the facts and truths that have somehow become lost in today’s thinking. It goes on to present the set of paradigms that have to be taken on board by corporate management if it is to construct a framework that will allow it to adopt strategic Sustainable Development policies.

  • The Challenges of Implementing e-Health Technology for Sustainability in

    • Abstract: In the field of health, the concept of sustainability is not new, but it tends to focus more on environmental health policy. There is an urgent need to assimilate the contribution of social theory into the concept and practice of both sustainability and e-health. The concept of sustainability is very complex, involving environmental, economic and social issues. In addition, in most health sustainability studies, the issue of social sustainability is neglected, despite the fact that social issues are often at the crux of sustainability. E-health is essential for the sustainability of health care, but many e-health projects have failed. Investments in e-health are very high in the whole world, but no explicit research has examined its sustainability. The aim of this paper is to initiate a discussion about sustainability in the implementation and use of e-health in Brazil, with the hope that this will provide a foundation for holistic sustainable e-health systems.

  • ISO 14001 and 26001, Agents of Change in the SME

    • Abstract: At present, business strategies in SMEs (Small and medium enterprises) are crucial for consolidation in highly competitive markets, in achieving a better image and in business profitability. One of the strategies that are currently being used and that have a high level of success are the practices focused on sustainability and social responsibility, through standardized standards such as: ISO 14001 and ISO 26001. The literature related to sustainable business is based mainly on the theory of resources and capabilities, and in theory based on Stakeholders. These currents state that companies should focus on profitable strategies to ensure significant and long-term results, in order to achieve organizational and financial results for stakeholders. In this work, the sample consists of 215 companies from the commerce, services and industry sectors, located in the southern region of the State of Sonora in Mexico.The objective of the work is to analyze the influence of ISO 14001 and 26001 standards on the image and profitability of SMEs. The statistical analysis of the data has been carried out through the linear regression technique by OLS (Ordinary Least Squares). The findings prove that the ISO 14001 standard is the one that most influences the improvement of the business image and the level of profitability of the SME. In addition, we discovered that ISO 26001 has a partial influence on the image and profitability of the SME.

  • How Strategic Human Resource Planning Influence Performance of
           Agricultural Research Institutes in Kenya

    • Abstract: Strategic planning is a tool that determines the destiny of an individual, institution or organization. Globally, competition defines strategies encompassed by institutions due to industrial economy that had been experienced to pass toward knowledge resource. Efficiency is achieved by successful utilization of resources. Organisations seek a more competitive edge at all costs and turn to more innovations in information technology. Effective measures provide decision makers with feedback on the effect of deliberate actions and influence critical decisions such as resources allocations, as well as appropriate action as may be necessary. This study was carried out in Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organisation (KALRO) to determine how strategic human resource influence the performance of agricultural research organisations. It was anchored on the theory of transformational leadership theory. Information on whether research organisations apply strategic human resource planning in management was scarce. This was partly due to the little attention that was drawn on quality of services offered and feedback. Although there had been previous international studies in this field, no similar work had been conducted in agricultural-based research organisations in Kenya. This study therefore sought to establish whether strategic human resource planning could influence performance in agricultural research organizations. Survey research design was used. The study comprised of four agricultural research institutes. The Institutes had a total of 2922 employees in 2016. A structured questionnaire was administered to collect primary data. A pilot test was conducted on 10% of the total respondents to test reliability and validity. Reliability of the instrument was determined by use of Cronbach’s alpha coefficient. The Pearson’s product moment correlation was used to establish test for linearity using Statistical Package for Social Sciences, (SPSS 2018), while Analysis of Variance was used to test hypothesis. Results showed that strategic human resource management contributes to increased agricultural research performance in KALRO institutes. It is recommended that the findings of this study be embraced by other agricultural research institutions in Kenya.
