A Framework for Evaluating Return on Investment in Management Development Programs AgEcon
Lynch, Kara; Akridge, Jay T.; Schaffer, Scott P.; Gray, Allan W..
Return on Investment (ROI) is a financial metric that can be used to evaluate training and development investments. The objective of this research is to develop an evaluation process using ROI to assess the financial performance of management development programs. A three-phase model for ROI evaluation is presented. These phases include assessment planning, data collection, and data analysis. This model is then tested and applied to a management development program. This paper provides a template for ROI evaluation that can be used to evaluate a wide variety of training and development activities by food and agribusiness firms.

A triage approach to improve the relevance of marine ecosystem services assessments ArchiMer
Pendleton, Linwood; Mongruel, Remi; Beaumont, Nicola; Hooper, Tara; Charles, Mahe.
Ecosystem services assessments are increasingly being used to inform marine policy and planning. These assessments involve significant time, effort, and expertise. It is important at the outset to determine which of many ecosystem services should be quantified and which measures of ecological output, economic impact, or value should be assessed. Furthermore, the literature shows that in practice such assessments are unevenly applied and rarely used effectively in decision-making processes. We develop a structured decision-making approach, called a triage, to assess what types of ecosystem services should be assessed to improve the uptake and usefulness of such information in marine planning. Two case studies, in France and the United Kingdom, provide...

ACIAR’s 25 year investment in fruit-fly research AgEcon
Lindner, Robert K.; McLeod, Paul.
Fruit flies are recognised as one of the major pests of fruit and vegetable crops worldwide. Potential benefits from fruit fly research include biosecurity benefits from better quarantine surveillance that reduces the costs of an incursion by a damaging exotic pest fruit fly; market access benefits by enabling new fruit exports; and field control benefits from better crop management. The Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR)’s investment in fruitfly research goes back some 25 years to an initial project in Malaysia. Since that time, ACIAR’s continued investment has funded a total of 18 projects ranging across several areas of fruit-fly research, and covering Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Fiji Islands, Samoa, Tonga, Cook...

An overview on the use of precautionary approach and tuna management ArchiMer
Fonteneau, Alain; Fromentin, Jean-marc.
This paper develops a critical overview of the various problems and uncertainties faced in tuna stock assessment, management and conservation. This presentation is based on Atlantic tunas, but also on various tuna stocks worldwide. Tuna jisheries management is characterized by major uncertainties in the stock assessment; since these stock assessments are always done only on jishery data which are often biased. Fortunately most tuna stocks are showing a strong resistance to overfishing. These major characteristics of tuna stocks and jisheries, and the bias in the scientific analysis, are presented and discussed. As a result, many of the reference point recommended for the precautionary approach applied to jisheries are often quite inappropriate for tuna...

Analysis of gear interactions in a hake fishery: The case of the Gulf of Lions (NW Mediterranean) ArchiMer
Aldebert, Yvonne; Recasens, Laura; Lleonart, Jordi.
The hake of the Gulf of Lions is the most important target species of the demersal fishery. It is exploited by four types of gear (two trawls, gillnet and longline) used by two countries (France and Spain). Some analyses of its dynamics, based on 19 88 length frequency data by gear, have been performed. These analyses consisted in a VPA (Virtual Population Analysis). phis a Y/R (Yield per Recruit analysis) carried out on two parameter scenarios by sex, under a steady state hypothesis (with constant recruitment). Some estimates of biomass and exploitation level were obtained, and sensitivity to the biological parameters and interaction between types of gear were studied. As a main conclusion, it can be seen that the types of gear fishing mainly small...

Assessing Changes in Fisheries Using Fishers’ Knowledge to Generate Long Time Series of Catch Rates: a Case Study from the Red Sea Ecology and Society
Tesfamichael, Dawit; Fisheries Centre, University of British Columbia; Department of Marine Science, University of Asmara; d.tesfamichael@fisheries.ubc.ca; Pitcher, Tony J.; Fisheries Centre, University of British Columbia; pitcher.t@gmail.com; Pauly, Daniel; Fisheries Centre, University of British Columbia; d.pauly@fisheries.ubc.ca.
The data requirements for most quantitative fishery assessment models are extensive, and most of the fisheries in the world lack time series of the required biological and socioeconomic data. Many innovative approaches have been developed to improve data collection for fisheries. We explored the use of data from fishers’ interviews to estimate time series of approximate “best” catch rates. A total of 472 standardized interviews were conducted with 423 fishers along the southern Red Sea coast recording the best catch recalled and the change in average catch rates throughout the fishing career of interviewees. The results showed a decline of best catch rates in all fisheries, ranging from 4% to 10% per year for more than 50...

The Northern Highlands Lake District of Wisconsin is in transition from a sparsely settled region to a more densely populated one. Expected changes offer benefits to northern Wisconsin residents but also threaten to degrade the ecological services they rely on. Because the future of this region is uncertain, it is difficult to make decisions that will avoid potential risks and take advantage of potential opportunities. We adopt a scenario planning approach to cope with this problem of prediction. We use an ecological assessment framework developed by the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment to determine key social and ecological driving forces in the Northern Highlands Lake District. From these, we describe three alternative scenarios to the year 2025 in which...

Assessment of the impact of preventive maintenance strategy on reliability indicators of a rice combine harvester in the Gambia. CIGR Journal
minteh, mustapha.
Abstract: Maintenance cost of agricultural machines accounts for about 10 to 15% of total production cost and this tends to increase as the machine gets older. To stabilized this already high cost, agricultural machinery maintenance engineers chose Preventive Maintenance (PM) strategy. However, the latter may not produce the desired results especially when machines are used under different operating context. In this paper, an assessment of the effects of PM strategy on reliability indicators (failure rate, mean time between failures (MTBF), mean time to repair (MTTR) and mechanical availability) of a rice combine harvester Mitsubishi TVR96 working under the operating context of Pacharr rice fields in The Gambia, is discussed. These reliability indicators...

Assessments of ecosystem services and human well-being in Thailand build and create demand for coproductive capacity Ecology and Society
Lebel, Louis; Chiang Mai University, Thailand; llebel@loxinfo.co.th; Wattana, Suchada; Policy and Planning Bureau, Ministry of Interior, Thailand; suchadawattana@hotmail.com; Talerngsri, Pawin; United Nations Development Programme; pawin.talerngsri@undp.org.
Assessments of ecosystem services have been proposed as one way of incorporating concerns about environmental change and ecosystem conditions into subnational development planning. In Thailand a policy window for such initiatives is opening because of a transition in national policy toward area-based planning combined with broader political reforms to expand public participation and encourage more evidence-based decision making. We explored three case studies in Thailand in which central and local government agencies and research organizations partnered to engage local communities and other stakeholders in assessments of ecosystem services and human well-being. The analysis focused on the role ecosystem assessments play in building and creating demand...

Balancing Development and Conservation? An Assessment of Livelihood and Environmental Outcomes of Nontimber Forest Product Trade in Asia, Africa, and Latin America Ecology and Society
Kusters, Koen; Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR); k.kusters@cgiar.org; Achdiawan, Ramadhani; Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR); r.achdiawan@cgiar.org; Belcher, Brian; Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR); b.belcher@cgiar.org.
This article addresses the question, to what extent and under which conditions nontimber forest product (NTFP) trade leads to both livelihood improvement and forest conservation. We based the analysis on a standardized expert-judgment assessment of the livelihood and environmental outcomes of 55 cases of NTFP trade from Asia, Africa, and Latin America. The results show that NTFP trade benefits several components of peoples' livelihoods, but may increase inequality between households. Involvement of women in the production-to-consumption system (PCS) tends to have a positive impact on intrahousehold equity. In 80% of the cases, the commercial production of NTFPs does not enable people to make financial investments to increase quality and quantity of...
