In today's global economy, it is essential for a corporation to understand the environmental laws of a foreign country in which it is doing business or seeks to do business. Equally important to a corporation is understanding climate change and managing its impacts. For a handy resource that addresses these rapidly evolving issues, turn to Mastering Legal Matters: How Climate Change and International Environmental Issues Influence the Real Estate Business, which contains the following chapters: •International Environmental Issues examines environmental law in the international context, which is important in business transactions as environmental regulation becomes more and more transnational in character. Coverage includes discussions of international controls on wastes, radioactive materials, and chemicals; European Union environmental law and policy; environmental risks associated with investing in Eastern, South Eastern and Central Europe; and environmental issues and laws in China. Practical guidance is also provided to help reduce the risks inherent in foreign real estate and business transactions. •Global Climate Change and Its Impact on Business discusses the legal impacts of climate change on business, including the risks and opportunities, so that corporations can strategically position themselves to best manage the impacts of climate change. Toward this end, the chapter provides an overview of the current state of climate change policy and its impact on business transactions, an analysis and insight into regulatory initiatives to regulate greenhouse gases and corresponding carbon markets, and an analysis of climate change-related litigation.

Mastering Legal Matters: Navigating Climate Change—Its Impacts and Effects on Green Buildings and Trading Programs is a collection of three chapters that addresses how climate change affects human health and the environment, and discusses what is being done to reduce its current and future impacts. Contained in this unique offering are the following: •Global Climate Change examines the factual background of climate change and its legal implications both nationally and internationally. Coverage includes discussions of greenhouse gases (GHGs); U.S. policy on climate change; the role of the Clean Air Act in regulating GHGs; climate change litigation; and regional, state, local, corporate, and voluntary efforts to address climate change. •Green Buildings and Sustainable Development explains the concept behind green buildings, which is to increase the energy efficiency of buildings and reduce building impacts through better siting, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and removal. The chapter looks at green building rating systems (iincluding LEED); federal, state, and local laws concerning green buildings; and non-governmental and private green building initiatives. Practical advice for drafting green building contracts is also provided. •Environmental Trading Programs answers the questions: What are environmental trading programs and how do they work? Briefly, these programs are being used to reduce air pollution, abate water pollution, replace critical species habitat, and achieve reductions in greenhouse gases. Along with discussing the general concepts applicable to environmental trading programs, the chapter examines the two main categories of trading programs and describes how individual environmental trading programs work.

Shelf category: Software Engineering Mastering the Requirements ProcessSuzanne Robertson & James Robertson Delivering the software that your customer really wants. "Mastering the Requirements Process and the Volere specification template are real breakthroughs. They introduce the beginnings of science to a domain which had, up till now, been ruled by craft." Tom DeMarcoIt is widely recognized that incorrect requirements account for up to 60% of errors in software products, and yet the majority of software development organizations do not have a formal requirements process. Many organizations appear willing to spend huge amounts on fixing and altering badly-specified software, but seem unwilling to invest a much smaller amount to get the requirements right in the first place. This is a book for those who want to get the right requirements. Mastering the Requirements Process sets out an industry-tested process for gathering and verifying requirements. It provides the techniques and insights for discovering precisely what the customer wants and needs. "Mastering the Requirements Process shows, step by step, template by template, example by example, one well-tested way to assemble a complete, comprehensive requirements process." Gerald WeinbergThe specification template in this book provides the basis for your own requirements specifications. It guides you to the correct specification content as each part of the process reveals different aspects of the products functionality and properties. This book shows you how to make the requirement measurable and testable. By providing a measurement a fit criterion for each requirement, the requirements analyst can describe precisely what the customerwants, the designer can construct a product that exactly matches the requirement, and the tester can determine whether or not the final solution satisfies the requirement."The Robertsons" concept of fit criteria is all by itself worth the investment of your time to read the whole book. Fit criteria and the allied discipline of quality gateways enable you to build requirement sets that are measurable, provably correct and testibly complete." Tom DeMarcoFeatures:7 The Volere requirements process completely specified with a rigorous and detailed model. 7 A specification template that can be used as the basis for your own requirements specifications. 7 The requirements shell used for bringing rigor, tracability and completeness to requirements. 7 Checklists to help identify stakeholders, users, non-functional requirements and more. 7 Trawling techniques for eliciting requirements. 7 How to exploit use cases to determine the best product to build. 7 Reusing requirements and requirements patterns. 7 Examples showing how the techniques and templates are applied in real-world situations. 7 Accessible style, fully cross-referenced, numerous diagrams.The Authors: Suzanne Robertson is a leading figure in the world of systems analysis and requirements modeling. She is the roving ambassador for the British Computer Society"s Reuse Group and is on organizing committees for the International Conference on Software Reuse and Object Technology. James Robertson brings the experience of working and consulting on requirements with several hundred companies to this book. When his busy seminar schedule permits, James advises companies on how to adapt to a world where requirements are paramount. Suzanne andJames are principals of the Atlantic Systems Guild, an international think-tank producing numerous books and seminars that are among the most successful in the software industry.Visit Addison Wesley Longman on the World Wide Web at: http: //www.awl-he.com/computing/http: //www.com/cseng/BarcodeBack of Jacket
