Moving From Agenda To Action: Evaluating Local Climate Change Action Plans, Zhenghong Tang, Samuel D. Brody, Courtney E. Quinn, Liang Chang, Ting Wei 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Moving From Agenda To Action: Evaluating Local Climate Change Action Plans, Zhenghong Tang, Samuel D. Brody, Courtney E. Quinn, Liang Chang, Ting Wei

Community and Regional Planning Program: Faculty Scholarly and Creative Activity

Climate change is conventionally recognized as a large-scale issue resolved through regional or national policy initiatives. However, little research has been done to directly evaluate local climate change action plans. This study examines 40 recently adopted local climate change action plans in the US and analyzes how well they recognize the concepts of climate change and prepare for climate change mitigation and adaptation. The results indicate that local climate change action plans have a high level of “awareness”, moderate “analysis capabilities” for climate change, and relatively limited “action approaches” for climate change mitigation. The study also identifies specific factors influencing ...

An Analysis Of Small Business Loan Guarantee Funds, William E. O'Bryan III 2010 University of Nebraska at Lincoln

An Analysis Of Small Business Loan Guarantee Funds, William E. O'Bryan Iii

Community and Regional Planning Program: Student Projects and Theses

Small businesses are considered important engines for job growth and economic development by policy makers worldwide. One of the most commonly cited constraints of small businesses is a lack of access to capital. To address this constraint, small business loan guarantee programs have been established in over 100 countries. There are a variety of types of guarantee funds, with the most significant differences being which borrowers are eligible for guarantees, and how borrowers are approved for guarantees. There is currently no clear delineation between types of programs and the economic conditions they operate in, though some trends are becoming apparent ...

The Space Of The Mask: From Stage To Ridotto, Marc J. Neveu 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

The Space Of The Mask: From Stage To Ridotto, Marc J. Neveu

Architecture

In this chapter, I consider the means of participation within the public sphere of eighteenth- century Venice. My interest is to flesh out the nature of discourse within interior institutional spaces, and I will do so through a discussion of two related phenomena. First, I will examine the role of the mask, which by the eighteenth century had become synonymous with Venetian carnival and debauchery. Indeed, Venice in the eighteenth century gained much of its naughty reputation due to the exploits of Sior Maschere. Masks, however, were not only worn for amusement or the possibility of anonymous pleasure. During the ...
