The turmoil caused by problems in the American mortgage market has served as an important reminder of the interdependency of global financial institutions. This book presents a survey of the fundamental issues surrounding risk management and shows how central banks and other public investors can create better risk management systems.
Risk management is an essential part of the decision-making process. To advance this decision making, the study investigates the explicit and implicit inferences of the banking sector in response to acknowledged risk aspects (credit risk, liquidity risk & operational risk) faced within the dynamic business environment in which the bank operates. Responsive behaviour of risk mangers is identified for conventional and Islamic banks. In addition, the study compare and contrast their responsive behaviour between two set of banks (Conventional and Islamic). It is imperative and constructive to know about the factors on which future decision making can be based. On the practical aspect, this study could help management of the banks'' and policy makers to spotlight on the main banking activities that possibly will enhance the bank position and financial presentation.
The book introduces some recent developements for the stock-bond market interactions and risk management. Three chapters involve both case study and international investigations. The results provide major new insights and tend to circumvent the gaps of such nexus. Innovative approaches are considered to extract the main results. In doing so, advanced wavelet method, copulas and risk management measures are applied.

With the rapid development of the understand space exploitation and urban rail transit systems in China, the safety of adjacent buildings included by tunnel excavations, which involves various risk factors due to complex tunnel-soil-building interaction, is becoming an important concern in metro tunnel construction practices, especially in crowded urban central areas. This book investigates the deep understanding and processing approach for the uncertain risk factors in complex environments using the advanced data processing techniques and artificial intelligence methods, reveals the cataclysmic evolution mechanisms for the tunnel-induced building damages, and provides a guide to safety management practice in construction industry in China.
This dissertation shows the practical usefulness for asset allocation and risk management purposes of the variance risk premium, an index of market implied risk aversion. With reference to the asset allocation application, the short term forecasting ability of the variance risk premium is tested in a real time experiment by simulating long/ short quarterly rebalanced portfolios invested in the S&P500 based on the prediction of econometric models incorporating the premium. The result indicates that the use of the risk aversion index allows the Investor to outperform both the buy and hold strategy as well as similar strategies not including the risk premium both on a risk adjusted basis as well an on an absolute return one. With reference to the risk management application of the risk aversion index, we modify the filtered historical simulation approach to computation of the value at risk by relaxing the assumption of random walk and replace the model drift with a time varying conditional expectation of short-term stock returns. We find that there is little evidence that value at risk models can be improved with the predictability associated with the variance risk premium.

Traditional project management approaches encompass the idea of uncertainty, but there is no established managerial practice able to deal concretely with the Unexpected, that is some practice that helps managers to deal with events that have already taken place but that were not anticipated in their planning, so that – in order to remaining “on track” and to succeed, radical changes are required. In this work I examine how project teams and managers react to Unexpected and how they are able to cope with high project Uncertainty. In order to draw some practical conclusions, the work will analyze both the Organizational responses and the “Human”/Behavioral responses. I will try to shed some light on the different approaches to Unexpected Events Management through a literature Review of Project Management Methodologies and Techniques, followed by an analysis of new approaches to the Management of Uncertainty, and a detailed description of the LHC case study, a large-scale, international, and high-tech project: how the Team has approached and dealt with the Unexpected in that particular case, and which of the previously seen methodologies are used in practice by project managers.
An environmental impact assessment (EIA) is an assessment of the possible positive or negative impact that a proposed project may have on the environment. This project is an Environmental Impact Assessment report for the proposed expansion of water distribution from Kemtilil water project in Kenya. Saos centre residents and others on downstream suffered over the past years and continues suffering an acute shortage of potable water, commissioning of the proposed project would therefore allow coping with the present shortages. This justified the need for EIA. Consultants carried out environmental study at the proposed site and also the surrounding areas. The environmental study comprised the following activities: mobilization, liaison and consensus building with stakeholders, a scooping exercise, desk and field studies, data analysis, impact assessment, health and safety issues associated with the proposed water project. Evaluation of positive and negative Environmental Impacts was done. Finally, Environmental monitoring and management plan was developed. The proposed Kemtilil Water Project was seen as a major infrastructure project, socially acceptable and recommended for approval.
In the past decade, the role of GIS is enormous in managing spatial and non-spatial data for making effective decision regarding risk in different tropical diseases. Lack of geo-referenced data on malaria breeding sites for assessing malaria risk in an area is one of the gaps on the health sectors. This book, therefore, provides an important pieces of information on addressing the risk assessment of tropical diseases like malaria by the help of spatial model in GIS environment. The three distinct, parameters of risk model described herein.
Effective project management in building construction always related to three major items that is time implication, cost implication and quality of the building construction. This book identified four most important causes to the ineffectiveness of project management in building construction which are design error, construction error, client change requirement and other factor which are mostly related to authority change requirement and no risk management implication. To achieve an effective project management in building construction , for primary stage, there are four main reasons need to be solved and PDCA ( Plan-Do-Check-Act) method have been proposed to help solve three major process of building construction that is pre-construction period, construction period and post-construction period.
