A decade ago, the European Union decided that railways should be privatised and deregulated (effective from 2007 onwards). Due to the recent enlargements of the EU and the risk of failures in the decision-making process, it is important to examine early adopters of deregulation policies. We analyse literature and use second-hand quantitative materi...

“The United Nations (U.N.) announced that drought is at risk of becoming ‘the next pandemic’ if urgent action isn’t taken to tackle climate change through water and land management,” The Hill reported. “About 1.5 billion people have suffered from the effects of droughts this century, with the land devastation, food insecurity and other subsequent factors leading to economic costs of an estimated $124 billion.” “About 130 countries could face a greater risk of drought this century under a high-emissions scenario cited by the U.N.,” Reuters reported. “Another 23 countries will confront water shortages because of population growth, with 38 nations affected by both, it said. Drought — like a virus — tends to last a long time, have a wide geographic reach and cause knock-on damage.” This project aims to: - Contribute to achieving the sixth goal of sustainable development (ensure access to water and sanitation). - Contribute to achieving international water security. - Raising the awareness of decision-makers and the international civil society, Actors in the social and economic environment, about the risks of drought, through prospective studies. - Sensitizing decision-makers and the international civil society about ways to conserve blue gold. - Contribute to finding possible and alternative solutions to face drought. - How to cope with the next epidemic (drought).

In an age of globe-wide communications, information is the link that unites us. By being able to transmit it in large quantities quickly from continent to continent, we have transformed a largely separate and diverse world into a single global megaloon. The messenger on foot gave way to the information highways worldwide. Anything may be a valuable asset to be compiled, stored, duplicated, sold, stolen and sometimes a source of murder. Many people around the world spend their working day gathering, studying and processing/processing information. Industries have been developed to produce equipment (and software) to store and process information. Organizations have many physical assets that have to be managed, such as products, financial goods and others. Information today requires permanent attention and can be regarded as the most valuable asset, so in so-called knowledge-based economies, information is taking on an increasing share of the cost of doing business successfully. Although we can store it using various physical supports, the information itself is not physical, but abstract and so little purely mental. Knowledge is stored in people's memories, but information is out there in the world. Whatever it is exists somewhere between the physical world around people and the mental of human thought its comprehensive and timely publication is intended to be an essential source of reference for organizational managers to support strategies, control and operational decision-making based on the literature available in the fields of business science and information science, while also providing new opportunities for research in these dynamic and interdisciplinary fields. This text is expected to provide the necessary resources for strategy makers, policy makers, professionals, users and managers to manage information in a sustainable and innovative way.
