Coastal areas of the world face a range of risk related to climate change. Cyclone and associated storm surge is the most destructive hazard that frequently occurs in Bangladesh and causes enormous suffering to the people of the coastal area. Increase in Sea Surface Temperature (SST) and Sea Level Rise (SLR) will increase surge height which will enlarge the boundary of the Risk Zone (RZ) and High Risk Area (HRA). Increase in surge height indicated greater intrusion distance and larger RZ and HRA. Study shows that intrusion distance will be increased by 6-10 and 18-23% for 2 and 4°C increase in SST, respectively. 75-99% of the population in the coastal districts are still vulnerable to storm surge risk due to unavailability of the cyclone shelters. The situation will be even worse for the 2°C increase in SST. Residual risk map of the study area shows that Noakhali Sadar, Lakshmipur, Chakaria, Bhola Sadar, Char Fashion, Ramgati, Patiya and Mirsharai thana will be highly susceptible to storm surge risk for 2°C increase of SST. This information will help in making decision for providing safety to coastal population from the adverse impact of climate change.

The European Commission introduced Quality Risk Management (QRM) for medicinal product wholesale dealers (MPWD) to ensure Good Distribution Practice (GDP), through the publication of the new EU-GDP guidelines in March 2013. This book serves as a template in the setting up of a QRM system by a MPWD. First, a Quality Management System (QMS) consisting of a number of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) regulating each distribution activity is set up. Then medicinal product distribution steps and risks are identified. Finally a QRM exercise is applied to the identified risks. Risks are classified as being acceptable or not acceptable. Corrective and Preventive action is proposed to mitigate unacceptable risks in the distribution of medicinal products. A model Quality Risk Management SOP and a Disaster Recovery SOP are proposed and also presented in this publication.
The First and Last Word on Managing IT Security Projects As the late management guru Peter Drucker once said, "Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work."

The intent is to provide you with effective network security planning tools so that you can "degenerate into hard work" as quickly as possible to keep your network secure with the least amount of effort. Rather than losing sleep at night wondering who's wandering around your network in the dark, you can create a comprehensive security solution for your company that will meet your security needs today and will allow you to address new security requirements in the future. This book is designed to help you do exactly that. Analyze the Cost of Prevention Versus Remediation How to determine if preventing a security breach is less costly than fixing it once it occurs. Identify the Right Project Management Team Determine who will be affected and make certain they are on board from the start. Monitor IT Security Project Quality Many companies must comply with specific monitoring requirements to meet industry or governmental regulations. Create a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) Be sure that your WBS tasks are at the same level by keeping the level of detail consistent. Create Reliable Documentation Your documentation should be well defined and completed in as near real time as possible. Implement Individual Security Analysis Programs (ISAPs) Testing requires an active "push" against security areas to ensure they don't collapse. Close the Issues Log, Change Requests, and Error Reports Addressing known issues in a reasonable manner and documenting those resolutions are important elements of reducing risk. Review Legal Standards Relevant to Your Project Failure to understand the legal implications may leave your company at substantial legal risk. Walk Through a Complete Plan Includes a step-by-step security project plan for a security assessment and audit project
