This paper provides an overview of developments in food safety policy in major industrial countries and of economic analysis of this policy. It describes the elements of a risk-based, farm-to-fork food safety system as it is emerging in OECD countries guided by discussions through Codex Alimentarius and traces its roots in the development of risk management policy in the United States.

Cost-benefit analysis has important uses

This study explored the feasibility and acceptability of harvested rainwater in rural communities of Bangladesh as well as densely populated City like Dhaka, using simple and low-cost technology. As a part of this study, a field survey was conducted in the water-scarce Dhaka City. Four slums were selected for conducting questionnaire survey.

This document respond to the need to integrate climate risk-based approaches, which address climate variability and climate change, within water policy frameworks. It aims to provide guidance on how resilience and adaptation can be integrated into national-level policy and programmatic planning in the water sector.

The existing Environmental Impact Assessment manual of MoEF is common for all the sectors requiring prior environmental clearance. Considering the diversity in all the sectors related to infrastructure and industrial development, MoEF launched a programme for development of sector specific EIA guidance manual. The EIA guidance manual will help the project proponent

An understanding of the uncertainty in benefit and cost estimates is a critical part of a benefit

The existing manual on Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) of MoEF, is common for all the sectors requiring prior environmental clearance. Considering the diversity in all sectors related to infrastructure and industrial development projects, MoEF launched a program for development of sector specific technical EIA guidance manuals.
