Strategic issues for the not for profit sector /

by Barraket, Jo (ed.).

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. UNSW Press 2008Description: ix, 291p. : ill., tables.Notes: See: Chapter 9. The role of the community sector in Australian welfare: A Brotherhood of St Laurence perspective by Paul Smyth. (General Manager, Research & Policy, Brotherhood of St Laurence 2002-2013.), pp. 212-235.Summary: "Bringing together some of Australia s leading and emerging researchers studying different aspects of the not-for-profit (NFP) sector, Strategic Issues in the Not-for-Profit Sector draws on original Australian and comparative research to provide a spirited exploration of strategic issues facing NFP organisations. A diverse, vital and ever-growing sector in Australia, the NFP sector provides the organisational framework through which many of the most disadvantaged in the community receive access to services and support. However, pressures such as a changing composition, an erosion of financial sustainability, the need to professionalise, and demographic trends affecting patterns of volunteering have put pressure on the NFP sector to innovate and grow in new directions. Strategic Issues in the Not-for-Profit Sector considers the local and global drivers of change, as well as the industry, policy and community imperatives impacting upon NFP sustainability, providing a unique insight into not only the strategic issues, but also strategic responses emerging within the sector." -- Publisher websiteAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Taking action for Victoria's future : Victorian Climate Change White Paper - the action plan /

by Victoria. Department of the Premier and Cabinet.

Publisher: East Melbourne, Vic. Victoria. Department of the Premier and Cabinet 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Climate change white paper action plan.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: July 2010Summary: This White Paper Action Plan has been developed through a lengthy process of consultation which started with the release of a Green Paper in June 2009, followed by rounds of submissions and local meetings to gather community views and new ideas. Victoria firmly believes in the need for a well-designed emissions trading scheme in Australia to deliver our part of agreed international targets. The disappointing outcome at Copenhagen and the defeat of the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme legislation has created uncertainty for the public and business alike. But the failure to achieve a globally binding agreement and the absence of a price on carbon in Australia should not be an excuse for inaction.Availability: (1)

The economics of climate change mitigation : policies and options for global action beyond 2012 : executive summary /

Publisher: Paris, France OECD Publications 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Against the background of a projected doubling of world greenhouse gas emissions by mid-century, this book explores feasible ways to abate them at least cost. Through quantitative analysis, it addresses key climate policy issues: ; What would an ideal set of climate policy tools look like? ; How large are the economic and environmental costs of incomplete country or sector coverage of climate change mitigation policies? What are the pros and cons of policy tools to broaden that coverage, such as international sector-wide agreements or border-tax adjustments? What are the main challenges in incorporating a mechanism to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation? ; How can we concretely develop a global carbon market? ; What is the case for, and what can we reasonably expect from, R&D and technology support policies? ; How great are the incentives for major emitting countries to join a climate change mitigation agreement, in terms of the costs and benefits (including the co-benefits from reduced local air pollution and improved energy security) of action? How can they be enhanced? How can international transfers of resources and technologies broaden support for action?Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
