Under ongoing climate changes, natural and cultivated habitats of major crops are being continuously disturbed. Such conditions impose and exacerbate abiotic and biotic stressors. Drought, salinity, flood, cold, heat, heavy metals, metalloids, oxidants, irradiation, etc. are important abiotic stressors, while diseases and infections caused by plant pathogens, such as fungal agents, bacteria and viruses, are major biotic stresses.

Country Risk: The Bane of Foreign Investors

Country Risk: The Bane of Foreign Investors by Norbert Gaillard
English | PDF,EPUB | 2020 | 266 Pages | ISBN : 3030457877 | 6.1 MB

With the growth of international trade and the advent of financial globalization in the 1970s and 1980s, country risk has become a key notion for economists, financiers, and investors. I define this notion as “any macroeconomic, microeconomic, financial, social, political, institutional, judiciary, climatic, technological, or sanitary risk that affects (or could affect) an investor in a foreign country. Damages may materialize in several ways: financial losses; threat to the safety of the investing company’s employees, clients, or consumers; reputational damage; or loss of a market or supply source.”

Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) is the de facto standard for implementing best practice in software engineering. Many experts believe that there is a close relationship between the quality and maturity of the underlying software processes on the one hand, and the quality of the delivered software product. Implementation of the CMMI enables an organization to design and develop software following sound software engineering principles.
